Ingredients

  • 2tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 level tbsp plain flour
  • 2 fish stock cubes
  • 2-3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 300ml (½ pint) milk

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Method

  • Heat oil in large saucepan. Add onion and cook over a medium heat for about 5 mins. Add flour to pan. Mix well, so mixture forms a thick paste. Gradually pour in 600ml (1 pint) boiling water, stirring well to give a smooth, thin sauce. Crumble in stock cubes and stir until dissolved.

  • Add cubed potato to pan. Bring mixture to boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 10 mins, or until potatoes are just tender.

  • Add milk and sweetcorn to pan. Bring mixture back to boil. Add seafood. Simmer soup for 3-5 mins, or until fish is cooked.

  • Season soup. Serve, sprinkled with parsley on top.
