This Hearty Fish Chowder is a quick and easy soup you can serve up any night of the week in under an hour!  Serve it up with a salad and crusty bread!



  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 large potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock (I like to use homemade)
  • 1 1/4 cups light cream or whole milk
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 cups can corn (or 11/2 frozen corn niblets)
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cooked fish (I used salmon and halibut) (see recipe tips)


  1. In a skillet melt the butter, then add the onion, potato, bay leaf and paprika. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are soft but not browned.
  2. Add the flour, mix well, and cook for about 1 minute.
  3. Then whisk in the chicken stock and milk. Bring to a boil then reduce heat, and simmer the soup for about 20 minutes, making sure to stir often.
  4. After this time, add the wine, hot sauce, corn and fish. Simmer until everything is warmed through, about 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the bay leaf, and remove the soup from the heat.
  6. Stir in the cheese until melted.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
