- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup diced white or yellow onion (or sub 1 large shallot)
- 8 ounces new potatoes (new crop yellow potatoes, red, yukon, any with thin skin) – cut into small dice (no bigger than 1/2 inch thick- the smaller you cut them, the faster they will cook)
- 1 ear of fresh corn- kernels sliced off ( or 1 1/2 cups frozen)
- 1 cup stock ( veggie, chicken or fish) or sub water- or use corn stock (see notes)
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- Pepper to taste
- 1/8 cup fresh basil leaves – cut into ribbons or torn
- Optional 2–3 tablespoons half and half
- 8 ounces fish- halibut, sea bass, wild Alaskan cod, haddock, salmon, black cod, shrimp, scallops
- olive oil for searing
- salt and pepper to taste
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until fragrant about 3 minutes. Add potatoes and corn. Saute 2- 3 minutes, add water or stock, salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Cover, turn the heat down to low and simmer 10 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender.
- While the potatoes are simmering, sear the fish. Heat oil in another skillet. Season fish with salt and pepper and sear each side over medium-high heat. Lower heat and cook to your desired doneness. Set aside.
- When the potatoes are fork-tender, uncover and cook off a little of the liquid. At this point, you could add a few tablespoons half and half or soy milk for a little extra creaminess (cook it for a minute or two to thicken) or simply leave it out.
- Stir in half of the basil. Taste, adjust salt.
- Right before serving, stir in the remaining basil, saving a little for the top. Dish up the sweet corn”chowder” and top with the seared fish and basil.

I love cooking with fish (all kinds) and veggies also all kinds, however I always miss the mark with seasonings. My go to spice for everything was Harissa.
A friend mentioned your website to me and it’s been a major event change. I now incorporate many different spices in the most wonderful recipes offered by you.
I’ve tried four of the fish dishes, many stews & soups and each is incredible!!!
I love the helpful notes with substituting or cooking methods!
Thank you for an excellent website😁😁😁
Thanks so much- glad you are finding the recipes helpful!
Hi, is this a book that’s available to buy?
Sorry, no cookbook yet!
Love them all I’ll definitely try them out soon thanks
I wanted to get into more creative seafood recipes since it seemed like all I knew how to cook in the seafood world was grilled salmon. I searched for healthy fish recipes and came across this list. Wow did I strike gold. I have gone through over half of the recipes on this list and have yet to be disappointed. Each dish has so much flavor with such simple and fresh ingredients. My favorites have to be the Chimichurri Shrimp, the Brazilian Stew with Chilean Sea bass, and then the Caribbean Shrimp Tacos with Mango Slaw.
Thanks Robert, glad you are enjoying!
it was very good
Can’t wait to have a go!
