Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 scallions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 bottles (8 ounces each) clam juice
  • 1 1/2 pounds scrubbed new potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 dried bay leaf
  • 1 pound cod fillet, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a 5-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add scallions, celery, and garlic; cook until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add flour; stir to coat. Add clam juice and 2 cups water, whisking until smooth.

  2. Step 2

    Add potatoes, thyme, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cook until potatoes are tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, about 10 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Add cod; cover, and cook until fish easily flakes, about 8 minutes. Pour in milk; cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

    I just wrote about this recipe for the EDF book giveaway. Very yummy. The fish doesn't get overcooked and all the flavors are great. It's a thin chowder, but I enjoy chowder on more the broth-y side.
