Irish Haddock and Potato Chowder


2 Tbsp.    Butter
½ Cup Onions-very finely chopped
½ tsp. Fresh Thyme-finely chopped
2 Cups Half and Half
½ Lb. Haddock or Cod Fillet
1 Cup Potatoes-peeled, diced ½”, don’t rinse or store in water
4 Tbsp. Fresh Chives-chopped
2 Tbsp. Flat Parsley Leaves-chopped

Heat a sauce pan on medium heat. Add the butter and  onions. Cook stirring until the onions become softened but not browned. Add the thyme, and cook 30 seconds. Add the half and half, cover and bring to a simmer. Add the fish fillets and very gently simmer for about 5 minutes or until nearly cooked. Carefully remove fish fillets to a plate and allow to cool slightly. Add the potatoes to the pot, cover and bring to a boil. Simmer potatoes for about 8 minutes or until tender. While potatoes are cooking, gently flake the fish and reserve. When potatoes are tender, finish the soup by adding the fish, chives, and parsley. Season the soup to taste with salt and pepper. Gently heat to reheat the fish. Serve and enjoy! Great served with oyster crackers or crusty bread. Enjoy!
