Do you ever get down to random items in your kitchen before shopping day and wonder how you can make supper with them? I had a day like that last week. I had two packages of fish fillets that didn’t match each other. And two is just not enough for our family of ten. It was a chilly damp day so maybe that inspired my next thought – fish chowder.
I didn’t feel like endlessly scrolling through recipes to find one I liked. I’ve done enough cooking that I thought I could pull this off on my own. It worked and I am so excited. I don’t often step out on my own to create something. I tweak recipes A LOT, but doing my own is a fairly new experience. My family loved it so I know I’ll be doing it again. Not only that I loved it, and generally speaking I don’t like fish (unless it’s deep fried in a thick batter ☺).
This recipe is easy and fast and can easily be adjusted according to your family’s likes or what you have in the pantry. I added some bread I had made that day, and we had a filling and comforting meal.
