Irish fish chowder with soda bread
This warming Irish fish chowder is full of flavour and goes well with our soda bread, which is so easy to make.
This is an incredibly easy dish to make but so rewarding and a real comfort food. We have used smoked haddock, salmon fillet and king prawns but if you are on a budget or finding the fish difficult to get hold of then you can use any white fish (we recommend that it has been sustainably sourced).
Soda bread is one of the easiest breads to make and doesn’t require any yeast. If you can’t get hold of any buttermilk you can put a tbsp. of lemon juice (about half a lemon, squeezed) in to 200ml of milk and it will sour slightly.
