A healthy, dairy free, paleo version of chowder that is mild and easy to make.
Serves: 4
  • 1 lb white fish, cubed into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tsp ghee or olive oil, divided
  • 8 oz onion, divided
  • 1 lb white sweet potato, cubed and divided
  • 4 oz celery
  • 4 oz carrot
  • 4 clove garlic
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • water as needed
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 pinch parsley, to garnish
  1. Saute half the onion with oil for 5 minutes.
  2. Add half the potato, then add enough water just to cover the potatoes.
  3. Simmer until very soft, then puree with an immersion blender or in a blender then set aside.
  4. Saute remaining onion, celery, carrot, garlic in ghee/oil about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the remaining amount of potato, then the salt, and small amount water – just barely cover potatoes. Cover and gently simmer to soften the potatoes but don't overcook.
  6. When potatoes soft, add the pureed mixture back into pot, heat until warm over low heat.
  7. Add coconut milk and fish (over VERY LOW HEAT) – allow to heat just until fish is cooked, do not boil – only needs about 3 -4 mins. Fish is done when opaque.
  8. Taste for seasoning, salt as needed. Garnish with parsley.
