Shrimp and Fish Chowder

Shrimp and Fish Chowder 150 Image by: Shrimp and Fish Chowder 150 Author: Canadian Living

This chowder is inspired by pot pie, but instead of baking the pastry-topped casserole, the pastry and filling are made separately and assembled at the last minute. If you're in a rush, you can serve the chowder with crusty rolls instead.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pkg (450 g pkg) frozen rolled butter puff pastry thawed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 leek (white and light green parts only), thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup clam juice
  • 1/2 cup 10% cream
  • 1 lb frozen large shrimp thawed, peeled and deveined
  • 2/3 lbs cod fillets cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 2/3 lbs white fish fillets cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Cut pastry into quarters; cut each in half to form 8 triangles. Place on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; brush with egg. Bake in 400ºF (200ºC) oven until puffed and golden, 18 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook leek, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes.

Add flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in broth, clam juice and cream; cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Stir in shrimp, fish, tarragon, lemon zest, lemon juice and pepper; cook over medium-high heat until shrimp are pink and fish is opaque, 5 to 6 minutes. Divide among soup bowls. Serve with puff pastry.
