Bermudian Fish Chowder

Hello, everybody,
I just came back from Bermuda, where I had this lovely, very traditional fish chowder at a restaurant. Does anyone have a recipe for this one?
Thanks a lot!

Re: Bermudian Fish Chowder

No  idea - but I found the following recipe.

"BERMUDA FISH CHOWDER" - Serves 12

4 Quarts water
1 ½ Pounds white fish fillets
Salt
Spices: thyme, bay leaves, peppercorns, ground cloves
2 Tablespoons butter
2 ablespoons oil
3 Large onions, chopped
8 Stalks celery, chopped
1 Garlic clove, minced
2 Green peppers, chopped
1 Can (28 oz, 794g) whole tomatoes, chopped
1 Can (10 oz, 285g) beef consomme
1  Cup catsup
½ chopped parsley
2 ablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
2 Teaspoons lemon juice
2 Pounds potatoes, peeled and diced
6 Carrots, diced
1 igger (2 ounces) Gosling’s Black Seal Rum (or a good dark rum)
4 Tablespoons Outerbridge’s Original Sherry Peppers Sauce
Freshly ground pepper to taste

In a large pot, put water, fish fillets, salt and spices. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 30 – 45 minutes.
In a frying pan, melt butter and oil and briefly sauté onions, celery, garlic and green peppers. Then add tomatoes and consommé and simmer covered for 30 minutes. Transfer this mixture to the fish stock and add remaining ingredients. Simmer partially covered for 2 hours. Adjust seasoning.
Serve soup piping hot and pass around Outerbridge’s Original Sherry Peppers Sauce and Gosling’s Black Seal rum (or a similar good quality dark rum) so guests can add a few dashes of each.
