Instructions

Pike Chowder Instructions:

• Start by poaching pike: Fill a high-rimmed frying pan with water, 2 stalks celery, 1 onion cut in half, a small handful of thyme sprigs, and a small bunch of parsley. Bring that to a gentle simmer.

• Lay pike fillets in simmering water and maintain a gentle simmer for approximately 10 minutes until fish is cooked and tender.

• Get a pot on medium heat, and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add 2 sticks celery cut into ¼ inch dice, and sliced back bacon. Let cook about 5 minutes until softened.

• Add ¾ cup whipping cream, and ¾ cup stock and blend until smooth.

• Remove pike from poaching liquid, and flake it into the blended chowder base.

• To the chowder, add 3 blanched, sliced potatoes, and 1 large diced carrot.

• Leave on heat for 10 minutes or until the carrots are tender.

Assembly:

• Season with salt to taste, and garnish with minced parsley.
