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.
Service at the Co-Op is friendly and helpful and the fish is MAGNIFICENTLY FRESH. If you have a special occasion coming up, the cooked lobster is absolutely delicious.
My wife and I ordered grilled swordfish. It took some time until it was done, but then we each got a nicely grilled piece about the size of a T Bone steak. Our daughter liked the salad. It might not be the place for a formal dinner but if you are hungry for fish at a reasonable price it’s certainly worth going there.
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
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.
