8 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups soup and about 1 teaspoon bacon)

This creamy one-bowl meal is loaded with flavorful ingredients including fish fillets and cream-style corn. Make this when you need a satisfying, home-style soup in a hurry.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook bacon in a Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble. Add onion to drippings in pan; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in thyme, broth, and baking potato; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes.

Step 2

Add whole-kernel corn and next 4 ingredients (whole-kernel corn through milk); bring to a simmer. Stir in fish; cook 9 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Add potato flakes, and cook until thick (about 1 minute); stir constantly. Sprinkle bacon evenly over each serving. Garnish with ground pepper, if desired.

My family really enjoyed this dish. I fixed with old frozen flounder filets and twice the bacon. All good. My wife suggested I should have served a side dish of something lighter like fruit or a salad.

I used turkey bacon and Haddock fish, but Grouper and other white fish would work just as well. I never achieved the creamy chowder texture. I even added extra 1/4 cup of mash potato flakes, but it was still not getting thick. Next time I would add the cream of corn, evaporated milk, and 1/2 potatoes; then with using an immersion blender thicken up the soup all before adding the fresh corn, second 1/2 potatoes and fish. I also added 3 cups of spinach, 4 extra slices of turkey bacon and pinch of red pepper flakes, which gave it some color and boosted the flavors. I cooked with the recommended amount of salt and pepper, but found I needed add more to my bowl. I would make this again.

Absolutely delish! Added a box of frozen chopped broccoli + a box of frozen chopped spinach (one can never have too many healthy veggies). Husband gave it raves! Will definitely add this to the regular rotation.

I made it with bluefish caught by my son. I also substituted clam juice for the broth. I added some carrots to boost veggies and add color. It was delicious!

This. Was. Amazing. This soup was so creamy and satisfying, and tasty to boot. I didn't read the ingredients right, and bought 2 14oz cans of creamed corn instead of 2 smaller ones. I just used one can, and it was great. I also didn't have frozen or fresh corn, so I used a can of sweet corn (drained). I added some crushed red pepper flakes and a dash of cayenne to give it a little kick. Delicious!

I usually don't write reviews, but this one had to be glorified! This is absolutely one of my favorite recipes. It is so easy to make, and it is a wonderfully hearty and healthy meal. The last time I made this, I substituted the leftovers from a whole chicken that I had cooked the night before instead of the fish, and it was even more delicious! Absolutely a five star meal!
