Fish stock ingredients
Chowder base ingredients
As with all great soups and sauces, you need to start with a tasty stock, this chowder recipe is no exception.
Combine all ingredients under fish stock in a pot and bring to a simmer and hold at a gentle simmer for 20 minutes. Turn stove of and let stock settle for a further 20 minutes. strain liquid and set aside, (discard solids) You should end up with around 1 litre of stock, if you have more don’t panic, this can be used if your chowder is too thick, alternatively left over stock can be frozen in ice cube trays for further usage down the track.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and stir in the flour with a wooden spoon until it forms a smooth paste. Continue stirring, cook for about 2 minutes, and then gradually – 1/3 cup at a time – add the fish stock. Stir and cook until the sauce is completely heated through, smooth, and thickened. Remove from the heat add thickened cream and season with the fish sauce and pepper, to taste.
Place your chosen items of seafood to add to your chowder such as prawns, fish pieces or calamari in your chowder and heat through , serve inside hollowed out bread rolls that have been brushed with melted butter, parmesan and lightly toasted.
Best cooked fish and chips I have had in so long and I live in a fishing town. Fish was fresh and cooked to perfection.
Stopped by the Fishermen’s Co-op just before the lunchtime crowd and the snapper was excellent. The crumbing was light and the oil fresh. In fact all the fish there looked great. The calamari was fresh and actually squid rings not mashed together to look like a ring. It got very busy quickly after I arrived and seating outside on the covered deck is limited so get in early or takeaway to the beach close by.
We came to buy a selection of fish and seafood for a BBQ later that day. The choice was first class, and the service good. The fish was very fresh, and we enjoyed the snapper cutlets, the marlin steak and the prawns. Delicious!
Our family of 4 tucked into one of the better fish n chips we have had for a long time. Nice crisp batter (not soggy, oily, or smoothed). We had a selection trawler whiting, flake, calamari, sea scallops, potato scallops, and chips all beautifully cooked, and with great taste of the seafood
