Phil has wanted me to make
Halibut chowder for years
and I never have because
I thought all the recipes I looked at sounded...not so good!
So three weeks ago I tackled this soup
and dumped all my favorite things together
it turned out delicious.
So I first like to set the table, my favorite
part of the meal.
Then recruit good help...
I first cut up a few potatoes and carrots
and par-boil them in a little chicken broth...
then I cut up my peppers and onions and saute them
in a little olive oil with sea salt.
then when the carrots are almost soft I add the sauteed
onions and peppers.
I use fat free half and half you can use the real stuff
I have also used coconut milk this is real creamy...
I melt all of the cheese and cream together
then dump it in also.
For my halibut I always use leftovers from the night before
and it doesn't matter how its been cooked.
Now to control how spicy you want your soup
with the pepper jack cheese in it.
It is activated with black pepper
so start off with a few shakes first
and then taste as you go.
then add your crumbled bacon and milk
and thicken with instant potato flakes
This is the first soup
actually went back for 4 bowls!
