|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|GROUPER CHOWDER, BOCA GRANDE STYLE|
2 lbs Grouper or firm white fleshed fish, 1" cubes
2 cups diced potaotes
1 green pepper, diced
1 pint half and half
2 tablespoon butter
water to simmer potatoes
Salt and black pepper to taste
Heavy iron pot
Simmer Potatoes and green pepper, salt and pepper, with just enough water to cover, until tender. Add fish and simmer till flaky, just a few minutes.
Add half and half and heat, don't boil. If you like it thinner add a little whole milk. Float the butter on top allow it to spread, don't stir.
Want fancy? Crumble 3-4 slices of crispy bacon on top of butter. Put it on the table in that iron pot.
This is the recipe that many of the fishing guides used at Boca Grande, Fla in the 30's and 40's.
Easy to adjust the amounts.
