Dinner Tonight: February 16, 2024 Fish Chowder

Fish Chowder


Write the names of famous people or characters and put in a bowl. One person chooses and describes the person while others guess who it is.


If you could solve one problem in the world, what would it be and why? Do you have any ideas about how to solve it?

The Family Dinner Project is based out of Boston–so we had to include a recipe for Fish Chowder, New England Style! (This recipe was republished from Food.com).

Junior chefs can help you peel potatoes, scrub carrots and celery, or add some more seasonings in for additional flavor. We suggest trying out versions with Old Bay spice, hot sauce, or chipotle powder (about a tsp. of any of these) OR add a bay leaf or chopped parsley!


Serves 4

  • 1 lb. cod fish fillet
  • 2 Tbsp. cooking oil (canola or olive)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 2 cups raw potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup carrot, sliced
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Cut cod fillets into bite sized pieces.
  2. Put oil in large saucepan and cook onion and celery until onion is tender and translucent. Add potatoes, carrots, water, salt and pepper.
  3. Cover and simmer 15 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  4. Add fish and cook 10 minutes longer.
  5. Add milk.
  6. Reheat, but do not boil.
