Chowder with Asian Flavours

Dinner tonight comes from Nigella Lawson’s Express and is a pretty quick one. Cook potatoes and leeks in chicken stock with bay leaves and mace. Then add some smoked cod, coconut milk and lime juice and let the fish cook before adding some prawns and tinned sweetcorn.

Personally, I wasn’t a fan of this one. The lime juice ruined it for me and made the sauce much too bitter. I managed to save it a bit by adding some caster sugar to counteract it, but the flavours didn’t really do anything for me. Mark on the other hand thoroughly enjoyed it.

A shame really. I’d always though this recipe looked good in the book, so it’s a bit disappointing that I didn’t enjoy it in the end. We didn’t go hungry though… check out the next blog post…
