Summer Corn Chowder with Cod.
Serves: 4 Servings
  • 5 Slice of Bacon
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion
  • 2 Large Shallots
  • 4 Tbsp. of Butter, divided
  • ⅓ Cup of Flour
  • 3 Tsp. of Cumin, divided
  • 3 Cups of Chicken Stock
  • ½ Cup of Half and Half
  • 5 Ears of Corn, kernels removed
  • 2 Cups of Red Potatoes, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. of Scallions, plus more for garnish
  • 1 Lb. of Cod
  • 1 Tsp. of Chili Powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. In a large pot, cook the bacon crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the bacon the pot and set aside to cool and then cut into small pieces.
  2. Add 3 Tbsp. of butter, the diced onions and shallots, and cook until softened and translucent.
  3. Stir in the flour, 2 tsp. of cumin, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the flour creates a roux.
  4. Add the chicken stock, half and half, corn kernels, diced red potatoes, scallions and bacon pieces. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, until the mixture thickens and the potatoes are cooked through.
  5. While the chowder is simmering, pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  6. Place the cod in an oven-safe dish and coat the fish with 1 Tbsp. of melted butter. Season the top of the fish with 1 tsp. of cumin, 1 tsp. of chili powder, and salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish, until cooked through. During the last 2 minutes of cooking, turn the oven to broil to crisp the seasoning on the top of the fish.
  7. Ladle the corn chowder into dishes and place fish pieces on top; garnish with additional fresh scallions.
