Fish Chowder courtesy of our friends at field&flower


As the Autumn weather creeps in and our minds turn to soups and stews, it’s easy to forget the comfort to be had from a good piece of fish. Delicate flavour in a rich and creamy broth, a generous spoon of chilli and pleasing undertones of heat, our fish chowder has all the substance we crave in the winter months.

Serves: 8

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 30 minutes



  • 2 x field&flower fish pie mix
  • 1 x field&flower streaky bacon, unsmoked
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 large onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1.2ml fish stock, made from 2 fish stock cubes
  • 1kg new potatoes, halved (or quartered if large)
  • 600ml milk
  • 300g frozen sweetcorn (or fresh)
  • 8 tbsp single cream
  • Pinch of chilli powder
  • Seasoning to taste

Cooking Method

  1. Heat the oil in a stockpot or large saucepan over a medium heat, then add the onion, bacon and garlic. Cook for 8-10 minutes until the onion is soft and the bacon is cooked. Stir regularly to avoid burning the garlic. Stir in the flour and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  2. Pour in the fish stock and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the potatoes, cover, then simmer for 10-12 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through.
  3. Add the chilli powder, milk and seasoning to taste.
  4. Tip in the fish pie mix and gently simmer for 4 minutes. Add the cream and sweetcorn and simmer for 1 minute more.

To serve

  1. Check the seasoning and serve with the spring onions on top.
