Smoked cod chowder recipe (Tasty Tuesdays)

I've linked up for the first time to Honest Mum's #Tasty Tuesdays linky.

We had this lovely chowder for tea tonight and it was comfort food in a bowl.  Perfect for the slightly chillier evenings.

Here's my recipe. It served the two of us and gave us a generous portion of leftovers.

Two fillets of skinless, boneless smoked cod (you could also use haddock)
165g tin sweetcorn (drained)
About 3 medium white potatoes
750ml semi skimmed milk
750ml stock made with vegetable or fish stock cube
150ml single cream
1/2 tsp English Mustard powder
I leek 
Black pepper
Olive oil (dash)


1. Peel potatoes and dice them into 1-2cm squares.
2. Chop leek into similar sizes pieces and wash.
3. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan and then sauté the leeks until softened (about 5-7 mins).
4. Make up the 750ml stock using the vegetable stock cube and boiling water.  Add to saucepan.
5. Add the milk to then pan and stir in the mustard powder.
6. Add the potatoes to the pan and bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer.
7.  Chop the fish into small pieces and add to the pan.
8. Add the sweetcorn and a few twists of black pepper.
9. When potatoes are tender add the single cream, remove from the heat and serve with hot buttered toast or crusty bread.
