Cod with Grilled Corn Chowder

In this recipe

This appetizing chowder just screams ‘summer’! Grilled corn and bacon mixed with Andre Prost Coconut Milk make a creamy and smoky flavored chowder that can’t be beat. It’s a great dairy-free alternative to heavy cream laden chowders and it’s even better the next day! Grill extra corn to have on hand, just for this wonderful entrée.

25-30 minutes to cook
Total time: 40-45 minutes

1. Fry bacon in a Dutch oven or soup pot until crisp. Remove from pot and drain on paper towels. Crumble when cool and set aside.
2. Drain all but 3 tablespoons of bacon grease out of pot. Add leeks, celery, salt and fresh pepper to taste. Sauté until vegetables are wilted. Sprinkle with thyme and add bay leaf. Cook, stirring for 1-2 minutes. Add stock, Coconut Milk and red potatoes. Bring to a boil and turn down to an active simmer, stirring occasionally.
3. When potatoes are almost cooked through (about 10-15 minutes) add cod, corn and reserved bacon. Cook an additional 5 minutes or until cod is just cooked through. Garnish with parsley and/or minced chives.
Test Kitchen Tip:

*A salad spinner is your best friend for washing sandy leeks. Fill strainer basket with leeks and separate rings while water is filling the bowl. Lift out the inside basket and all the dirt stays in bottom of the water/bowl.
