Wash produce before use
Prep the vegetables and fish
- Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
- Scrub or peel the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into ½-inch pieces.
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel. If using halibut, barramundi, or salmon, cut into 1-inch pieces; discard the barramundi skin. Season the fish lightly with salt and pepper.
Cook the chowder
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the potatoes and smoked paprika and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes start to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir in the cream, bay leaf, and 1½ cups [3 cups] water and increase the heat to medium-high. Using the back of a wooden spoon, lightly mash some of the potatoes, then add the fish. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and the fish is opaque and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and discard the bay leaf. While the chowder is cooking, prepare the parsley and ciabatta.
Prep the parsley; toast the ciabatta
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; finely chop the leaves for garnish.
- Cut the ciabatta in half horizontally; drizzle or brush the cut sides with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and season with salt.
Heat a dry medium frying pan over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Place the ciabatta, cut sides down, and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
Transfer the chowder to individual bowls and garnish with the parsley. Serve the ciabatta on the side.
- Measure the onion.
- Scrub the potatoes.
- Measure the water for the chowder.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Drizzle the ciabatta with oil; season with salt.
