How to Chop Herbs


In a large pot melt the butter. Add onion, garlic and carrot. Place the lid on, cook for 5 minutes, but not browned.

Add potatoes, milk, water, stock, paprika, herbs, chilli flakes and lemon zest. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are soft.

Add cornflour and stir until the chowder has thickened. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Add fish, parsley and dill simmering for 2 more minutes until the fish is cooked.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Place baguette slices on an oven tray, brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 10-15 minutes until crisp and browned.

Serve the fish chowder hot garnished with parsley and sliced baguette on the slide.
