Potato Fish Chowder


This fish soup with potatoes is comforting and warm on a cold winter day! I've also used this recipe to make oyster stew. It turned out better than expected.

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 2 stalks celery, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 (8 ounce) bottles clam juice

  • 2 cups water

  • 4 potatoes, cut into cubes

  • 1 bay leaf

  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 pound cod fillets, cut into chunks

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in a 5-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, celery, and garlic in melted butter until onion is tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

  2. Stir flour into the saucepan until vegetables are evenly coated. Pour in clam juice and water; whisk until smooth. Add potatoes, bay leaf, and thyme; bring liquid to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

  3. Gently stir cod into the soup. Cover the saucepan and cook until cod is flaky, about 8 minutes.

  4. Stir in milk and simmer until soup is hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove bay leaf to serve.
