The Millers Seafood Chowder

The recipe you have all been waiting for after my Facebook post yesterday! OMG this was so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe Hayley and Russ. You can send me your leftovers anytime! This was the BOMB!!!

Poor Man: For the family

1.2 kg marinara mix from Coles/Woolworths

Rich Man: For a dinner party

1 large fillet of fresh salmon (skin off)

1-2 handfuls of fresh uncooked prawns

1-2 handfuls fresh squid rings

1 large fillet of fresh white fish (Barramundi is my favie)

6-8 fresh scallops

10-12 fresh mussels

What to do:

1 tbsp E.V.O.O & 2 tbsp butter

1 large leek (finely sliced)

4 rashers of streaky bacon (sliced into strips or diced)

1 large potato (peeled and cubed – 1cm)

2 carrots (peeled and cubed – 1cm)

½ to 1 cup of plain flour (depending on how thick you like your chowder)

1 litre of Fish stock

Juice of 1 lemon

200 ml thickened cream

Handful of fresh parsley (chopped)

Salt & Pepper to season

  1. Add oil & butter to large pot and heat on medium heat. Add leek, bacon, potato and carrot and sauté until the leek is translucent. Add flour and cook off for a few minutes using a wooden spoon to scrap the bottom of the pot.
  2. Add fish stock and stir.
  3. Once the sauce starts to boil slowly add your seafood. Starting with the Salmon, 1 min later add Prawns, Squid and Mussels, then another minute later add the white fish and scallops.
  4. Finish off with adding the lemon juice, cream and fresh parsley. Season after tasting as can sometimes already be quite salty.

Serves 4-8 depending on serving size.  Bon appetite!
