About this recipe

Cozy up with a hearty bowl of New England-style Cod Chowder (or chowda, if you’re from the NE area). This simple soup is a tasty combination of crisp bacon, fragrant garlic, savory onions, tender baby potatoes, comforting broth, and flaky wild-caught cod, slow-simmered, and well-seasoned with herbaceous thyme and rosemary. Matiz Wild Cod is hand-packed in Galicia, Spain. This tender, flaky fish has a clean and delicate flavor, accentuated by the Spanish EVOO and sea salt. Aneto’s Fish Broth is the ingredient that contributes the ‘easy’ to this Easy Cod Chowder recipe. Composed of tomatoes, onions, carrots, fennel, leeks, and celery (ingredients we would’ve had to add to our soup if we didn’t use this broth) are low & slowly simmered with fresh white fish for hours, concentrating the flavors (and saving us time and money shopping for and prepping additional ingredients- woohoo!).
