Pix Rowe Miller's Family Fish Chowder

The ingredients are:

The recipe yield is:
6 Servings

Fry the bacon, remove from the pan, and place on a paper towel. Saute the onions in the bacon fat and set the pan aside. Cut the potatoes in half the long way, then into 1/4" slices. Put them in a nonreactive pot large enough for the chowder. Cover the potatoes with water and boil until tender. Becareful not to put in too much water or the chowder will be soupy. While the potatoes are cooking, cut the fish into generous bite-sized pieces. When the potatoes are ready, add the fish to the pot, cover and simmer until the fish flakes. When the fish is done, crumble the bacon and add it to the pot along with the onions and any grease in the pan, the evaporated and whole milks. Bring the mixture to boil, cover, and turn the heat down. Simmer for five minutes and add salt and pper to taste. Chowder invariably tastes better when made a day ahead. According to Katherine Hall Page.... The Rowe recipe may be happily modified in all sorts of ways. The chowder is still quite delectable with olive oil instead of bacon fat. You may also use salt pork. Two kinds of fish make for a more interesting chowder, but these can be any combination of the following: haddock, cod, pollack, monkfish and hake. Finally there is the question of garnishes: dill chopped parsley, oyster crackers, butter are all good. And Faith and Pix's friend on Sanpere, Jane Weiss, swears by her chowder to which she adds curry spices! Recipe By : Katherine Hall Page, 1994
