Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine the shrimp, cod fillet, garlic, lime juice, salt, pepper and chili pepper flakes; set aside, preferably in the refrigerator.
  • Next, in a large 4½ quart Dutch oven or medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until just translucent and softened, about 2 minutes. Add the bell peppers and continue cooking for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add the fish stock and cook for an additional minute.
  • Add the shrimp and chunks of cod, along with their marinade, followed by the diced tomatoes and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring very delicately from time to time, until the shrimp and fish are just opaque throughout and the mixture has released plenty of liquid.
  • Dilute the tapioca starch in the water and delicately stir that in the chowder; bring back to a simmer, cook for a full minute and then kill the heat.
  • Delicately stir in the coconut milk and chopped cilantro and serve without delay.
