This is a hardy fish chowder that is low in fat and still rich tasting. While it is easy to prepare, it is not a spur-of-the-moment dish since it must sit overnight to bring out the full flavor. Fat-free margarine and creamer may be used without sacrificing flavor.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large stock pot, melt margarine over medium high heat. Cook and stir chopped onion until translucent, but not darkened. Carefully add 3 quarts of water, increase heat to high, and bring to a low boil. Once boiling, stir in diced haddock and potatoes. Reduce heat to medium, and cook at a low boil for 30 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Remove pot from heat, and allow to cool until mildly warm.

  • Stir non-dairy creamer into cooled soup, slowly and thoroughly to avoid lumps from forming. Season to taste with salt. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours, or overnight, to develop flavors.

  • To serve, reheat on the stove or in the microwave. Adjust seasoning as needed with salt. Serve with soda crackers and sweet pickles.

Grew up on this.... eat it for every meal when I go to maine. Definately not a thick and creamy 'chowder' its more of a class all its own. Must serve with buttered Saltine Crackers and Bread and Butter pickles. Season with extra pepper in your bowl... Can never get enough and don't even have to feel bad about it diet wise:) Read More

Yup It's not a taste thing it's the allergy limitation factor! My suggestion would be that if I replace the milk with a malt free soy milk in savoury dishes and don't tell anyone.... nobody notices and everybodies happy! just have to be "gentle" with soymilk as it curdles more easilly than dairy Read More

Easy to make and low in fat and sodium which are important for my diet. Not a creamy chowder; more of a soup. A bit bland; I recommend adding the seasonings of your choice (I added parsley paprika black pepper and Mrs. Dash table blend) to perk it up a bit. Read More

It is very thin like soup. I would suggest adding some cornstarch to thicken it. Read More

I gave this 2 stars because it is a easy recipe. I used chicken broth in place of water i used haddock scallops and shrimp. I also used Silk Milk as it is creamy but found it did not help. I added bacon with the onion and used Earth Balance in place of the margarine. There is no seasoning mentioned in the ing. list and it could use some.As is it is quite bland.Will not make it again. #allrecipesallstarscanada #facelessnomore Read More
