Recently in my Kitchen Kop newsletter I asked my awesome readers for help. I asked them to send in some fall recipes that I could post, since I haven’t had time to get many up recently. Lorraine was the first to send in this yummy recipe and pictures, too. (I’m trying to be sure to only post recipes with pictures, unlike my early blogging days.) Thanks Lorraine! Find safe, healthy seafood here.
Serves 4 to 6
We have a local Seafood store that is owned by “real” fishermen. They are always bringing in the freshest wild seafood. They offer a special box that is packed with a variety of seafood and when mine arrives, I make this chowder. I usually like to serve it with whole wheat sourdough cheese buns and a glass of Kombucha. My family loves this meal!
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 3 Tablespoons butter or ghee
- 3 stalks of celery, finely chopped
- ½ cup white wine (optional)
- 5 cups fish stock (home-made is best)
- ½ cup tomato paste
- 2 large carrots, chopped
- 3-4 medium potatoes, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
- Pepper, to taste
- ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
- ½ pound halibut or cod, cut into chunks
- ½ pound scallops
- ½ pound prawns or shrimp
Melt butter or ghee in a large heavy pot and sauté onions and celery till tender. Add optional wine and bring to a simmer. Add stock, tomato paste, carrots, potatoes, garlic, and spices. Bring to a boil and then turn down heat to medium. Cook covered for about 15 to 20 minutes until vegetables are tender-crisp. Add the parmesan and seafood and cook until fish is just done, about 5 minutes.
Note: I always encourage everyone to use as much local, grown without chemicals ingredients (organic), and meat, eggs and dairy from animals that were/are free-ranging and were/are raised without hormones and antibiotics. Seafood should be wild from unpolluted waters.
