  • 4Servings


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 can (28 oz.) crushed fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes (10 oz.), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Reserved cod filets, crumbled
  • Reserved vegetables
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced (2 tsp. zest plus 1/2 cup juice)
  • 1/4 cup cup torn basil


In a large pot, heat the oil over medium. Add the garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, stock and thyme; simmer for flavors to meld, about 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and simmer until tender, about 12 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

Stir in the cod, vegetables and orange juice. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the fish is warmed through, about 5 minutes. Divide the chowder among bowls and sprinkle with the orange zest and basil.
