I try to eat fish at least once or twice a week.  While shopping at Costco I bought a package (over 2 pounds) of fresh cod.  Two pounds is too much to cook at once for two people without having leftovers for several days.  My plan was to cook half the package and freeze the rest for a future meal.  I decided to make a cod chowder.  The recipe is a basic chowder recipe and other ingredients can be added including other vegetables.  I used herbes de provence but one could add basil or dill.   I also used butter to saute the onion and celery.  This chowder was eaten as the main meal and you could add fresh bread or buns to eat along with this chowder.  The DH and I both enjoyed this meal.
Ready to eat!

1 lb uncooked cod
2 tbsp butter, margarine or olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, diced

2 carrots, thinly sliced or chopped

salt and pepper to taste
