We’ve actually had a hard time getting the fish this visit. The main reason is that most of the fish caught here is “exported” to mainland and the residents are not really big fish buyers as they generally catch what they need (or their neighbours do) and have a deep freezer full. Also this is a very small place without many shops, our fish typically comes from the back of this clothing store. That said although most of the seafood here is farmed or trapped, there are rumblings of past over fishing and trawling and normally we would have found a nice piece of haddock or halibut on day two, not day 5 of our visit. All in all, grocery shopping on an isolated island has its challenges.
Corn 1 cob or ½ cup of frozen
Start by putting the kettle on to boil.
Chop your fish up into inch cubes. Throw it in on top of your onions. We’re using 3 pieces of gorgeous fresh Haddock from Newton’s in Grand Harbour.
I love how fast you end up with chowder. 45 minutes tops.
