In and around the kitchen preparing soups as a weekday meal with leftovers for lunches.
Soups are so soothing when the thermometer dips and the chilly winds blow.
Befriend your local fish monger and ask for some fish bones...
I prefer to use salmon as I love the strong flavour it imparts to the stock.
Here are the frugal fish fixings.
"Humble Bungalow Frugal Fish Chowder"
Boil the fish in water for about 30 minutes.
Cool and remove bones and skin.
In a large pot saute 1 large diced onion and several stalks of celery sliced until soft.
Add water to cover and then add 2 or 3 chopped potatoes and 2 large carrots sliced.
Simmer until cooked, about 20 minutes.
Pop in a cup of corn kernels and a small can of tomato paste.
Add the fish stock, season with salt, pepper and dill.
Simmer for an hour and serve.
Hearty and delicious.
Weight Watchers friendly!
Serve leftovers for lunch or freeze for future use.
