Butternut squash and sweetcorn combine beautifully with smoked haddock and chilli to create a filling meal, perfect for cooler September days and all throughout Autumn and Winter. 

Haddock chowder

Tips – If you prepare this later in the year when fresh corn is out of season, it works equally well using frozen sweetcorn.

Food focus – A 100g portion of haddock provides 3X RDA of selenium, which is important for cancer, heart disease and diabetes prevention. I buy my haddock from FishBox, use my code ‘UrbanKitchen1’ for 50% off the price of your first subscription box.
