Easy Fish Chowder Recipe


  • 1, 15 ounce can of your favorite diced tomatoes (add another can if feeding more than 4 people)
  • 1/2 to 2 pounds of frozen fish such as red snapper, cod, etc. OR fresh fish of your choice.
  • 4 cups of water (for four people)
  • 1 large yellow or white onion
  • 1-2 cups Additional vegetables, chopped (see below)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or Italian flat leaf parsley
  • 1 TB chopped garlic
  • Season with salt and pepper before serving based on your personal taste.
  • (You can add as many or as few chopped vegetables as you like. You can also use more or less fish depending on how thick you like your chowder to be.)
  • *This recipe can also be made with leftover fish and leftover vegetables. I do not suggest using leftover fish sticks or any other fried fish unless you remove the breaded topping first. If you do use fish that has been cooked, just add it to the chowder about two minutes before serving to heat it to the temperature of the other ingredients in the pot. *
  • *If you prefer a Mexican flavor, add 1 tsp. cumin and 1/2 tsp oregano with a dash of cayenne pepper (or more for a hotter flavor)
  • If you prefer an Italian flavor, add 1/2 tsp of italian seasonings or 1 tsp oregano
  • For a mediterranean flavor, add 2 TB chopped fresh basil with 1/2 tsp oregano
  • **Additional vegetables to be added are based on your favorites and what you may or may not have in your pantry at the time. Here are some of my favorite additions for your review:
  • Diced potatoes, celery, carrots, zucchini, leeks, mushrooms, cabbage, mild chile peppers, red onions, artichoke hearts, and green or red bell peppers. You can add a handful of fresh spinach or 1/4 cup of frozen spinach. You can always add a can of mixed vegetables and of course, you can use frozen vegetables. I do not suggest using broccoli. corn is also a good addition. You can add a can of drained corn, black beans and a few tablespoons of salsa for a great Mexican fish soup.
  • (Use canned tomatoes that have additional vegs in them such as Mexican-style with chilies and onions, Italian-style with peppers or anything other blend you prefer.)
