Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Peel and finely chop the onion. Trim and rinse the celery. Finely slice. Rinse the baby leaf spinach in a colander. Pat dry with kitchen paper. Pop to one side for later.

  • 2.

    Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan with a lid. Add the onion and celery. Season with a little salt and pepper. Cook over a medium heat for 5 mins. Stir occasionally till softened and glossy.

  • 3.

    Fill the kettle and boil it. Peel the potatoes. Chop into chunks around 2 cm across.

  • 4.

    Add the potatoes to the pan and stir fry for a min. Stir in the milk with 200ml hot water from the kettle. Cover. Simmer gently for 15 mins till the potato is tender.

  • 5.

    Remove the pan from the heat. Carefully pour half the chowder into a bowl or jug. Use a hand blender to blitz. Pour back into the pan with the rest of the chowder.

  • 6.

    Return to the heat and add the fish pie mix. Cover and simmer for 5-8 mins till the fish just flakes. Stir in the spinach. Cover for 1 min till everything is cooked through and the spinach is wilted.

  • 7.

    Taste the chowder. Season with some salt and pepper if you think it needs it. Serve in large warm bowls.

  • Tip

    Gimme a hand
    Don’t have a hand blender? You can use a food processor or masher to get your chowder nice and smooth. If you prefer a chunky chowder, skip step 5 entirely.
