Halibut and Corn Chowder

Sherry Blizzard


Living in Alaska we are "fish-rich", so I am always on the lookout for a yummy new recipe. Fish is so versatile! I use fish to make tacos, fish sticks, patties, burgers, pizza, and even chili. Halibut or salmon can be used in this chowder. Great for our long, cold, dark winter days or in a cup with a side salad for a warm summer day.

Use a Dutch Oven and saute the bacon until soft-crisp....add the onion....cook a little longer until the onion is translucent. Add the celery and continue cooking for another 5 minutes.
Add the potatoes. ONLY COVER with water TO THE TOP OF THE POTATOES (NO MORE!!!)....boil on medium low until tender
