  • Preheat your oven (for the brioche buns) to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional). 
  • Cut the carrot into 2cm chunks (peeling optional). 
  • Trim and thinly slice the scallion.

TIP: You can warm the buns in the toaster if you've got one.

  • Place a large pot (for the chowder) over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, add the onion and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook the onion until softened, 4-6 mins, stirring occasionally.
  • Sprinkle the dried thyme and 2 tbsp flour (double for 4p) over the onion.
  • Cook for 1 min, stirring frequently.
  • Add carrots, potatoes, stock and 450ml water (double for 4p) to the pot. 
  • Bring to a boil and simmer for 15-18 mins, or until potatoes are fork tender.
  • Chop the fish into 4cm chunks. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish. Fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
  • Add the hake to the pot and leave to simmer for 4-5 mins, until cooked through.
  • While the chowder simmers, pop the brioche buns into the oven (or toaster) to warm, 3-5 mins.
  • Stir half the creme fraiche (double for 4p) into the chowder. 
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add more water, in small increments, until you get your desired thickness.
  • Stir well and allow to warm through.
  • Dish up a hearty helping of hake and carrot chowder.
  • Top with the chopped scallion.
  • Serve with the toasted brioche alongside.
