Set The Scene With Alison Roman’s Hamptons-Inspired Clam And Cod Chowder

Want to host your own book club? What better way to immerse yourself in the world of Emma Cline’s The GuestDua’s Monthly Read for Januarythan with a mouth-watering Clam and Cod Chowder recipe, inspired by the Hamptons – the setting for Cline’s novel.

Ingredients (Serves 8)

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1½ lbs small Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and halved – quartered if large
2 large leeks, white and pale-green parts only, finely chopped
4 celery stalks, finely chopped
4 sprigs thyme, plus leaves for serving
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
⅓ cup dry white wine
4 cups fish stock or bottled clam juice
2 cups heavy cream
4 lbs littleneck clams, scrubbed
2 lbs skinless cod or haddock, cut into large pieces
Hot sauce (for serving)
Lemon wedges (for serving)

Method

  1. Add the oil and butter to a large, heavy pot over a medium heat. Add potatoes, leeks, celery, and thyme sprigs; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until leeks are tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the wine and bring to a boil – cook until reduced by half, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add stock and cream, season with salt and pepper (if using clam juice, taste before adding salt – it’s very briny) and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook until the potatoes begin falling apart (their starch will help give body to the soup), 50-60 minutes.
  4. Add the clams to the pot and stir to coat. Cover and simmer until clams are just beginning to open, 10-12 minutes.
  5. Season the cod with salt and pepper and add to the pot. Reduce heat to low and cover. Let fish gently poach until cooked through, about 5 minutes (simmering too hard can make fish tough).
  6. Add more salt and pepper if needed and serve topped with thyme leaves, hot sauce and lemon wedges on the side.
