Another good sounding fish chowder recipe. On my to cook list for sure. Fish can be Pangasius, Sea Perch, Bass, Grouper, Tilapia, etc. Clam juice may be a bit of a stretch for me to find where I live, so if no clam juice, use fish stock, or 1/2 cup chicken stock + 1/2 cup water + 2 teaspoons fish sauce for each cup of clam juice needed.

Instructions
  1. Heat oil and butter in a large pot on medium heat, when hot, add onions and saute until softened, not browned, about 3 to 5 minutes. Then add the wine and increase heat and reduce the liquid by half.
  2. Add the clam juice, potatoes, Old Bay seasoning, bay leaf, thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If the potatoes are not quite covered with liquid, add just enough water so they are covered. Bring to just a boil then reduce heat to a low simmer, cover, and cook until the potatoes are just fork tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. In another small pot, heat the cream until steamy but do not boil it. Stir in the fish then the cream into the large pot, and cook uncovered until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, maybe 10 minutes or so, stir occasionally.
  4. When the fish is cooked through, remove from heat and stir in the parsley.
  5. Can serve at this point but if you let this sit for 30 minutes or so, covered, then heat to just steaming over low heat, the flavors will blend much more for a more flavorful chowder.
  6. Serve with bread or oyster crackers (which I am going to make as well soon).
Recipe Notes

For the fish, if you went with Pangasius, this is about 128 Baht/1 kilo. For 6 servings, this is about 63 cents per serving.

Variants: This recipe screams of variants. 1. Add shrimp, oyster meat, scallops. Remember to adjust cooking times to account for add ins. 2. Add mushrooms. 3. In place of Old Bay Seasoning, add a pinch of paprika and cayenne pepper.

Figure about 300 Baht/1 kilo of beef. For 4 servings, this is about $2.20 per serving.

Instructions
  1. In large pot over medium heat, add onion and garlic, saute until transparent.
  2. Then add ground beef or pork to the onions, mix, and over medium heat until cooked through, drain the fat.
  3. Add 2 cups of water, the diced tomatoes with the tomato juice, all seasonings, and bay leaf and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Add pasta and corn, mix, and allow to simmer an additional 20 minutes or until the pasta is tender. Add a little water as needed. Remove bay leaf before serving.
Recipe Notes

200 Baht for ground beef, 125 Baht for ground pork. 42 baht per can for tomatoes and corn. Macaroni and other ingredients, minimal. Cost would be for beef: $9.60 for 2 people for 3 days, or $1.60 per person per day. For pork: $7.40 for 2 people for 3 days, or $1.25 per person per day.

This is an easily tailored recipe to suite your tastes or to what you have on hand. No corn on hand, use mixed mixed vegetables, no canned tomatoes on hand, use fresh and tomato juice. No tomato juice on hand, make from tomato paste. Endless possibilities.
