Tuesday Recipe - Spicy Haddock Chowder

Spicy Haddock Chowder

There was an announcement in the news last week that our 5-a-day portions of fruit and vegetables is insufficient to prevent premature death and that we should be looking at 7 or even 10 portions of fruit and veg a day. Well the above recipe will certainly get three of those portions for you and you will enjoy eating them. From a calorific point of view it can be reduced by using semi-skimmed milk for the chowder base rather than full cream milk but the remainder of the meal is simply vegetables, fish and 1oz of butter. So although it looks rich and fattening it isn't really. too bad. 
The recipe comes from Nigel Slater who I find rather frustrating at times but who produces some quite simple and very tasty recipes. This is the case with this one and it is slightly spicy - the second time I made the meal I added a teaspoon of chilli powder which gave it a kick.
I've been producing recipes on Tuesdays for a couple of years and this is one of the tastiest and I can really recommend you trying it for a change.

The recipe is on the appropriate tab

RIP Mickey Rooney

1920 - 2014

It has been announced that Mickey Rooney died today. He was described by Lawrence Olivier as the best actor to have come out of America. He was born of parents who had a stage act and made a first stage appearance at 15 months old, and he appeared in Night at the Museum in 2011 so a prodigious career. God Rest His Soul.

God Bless
