Ingredients

  • 2 ounces bacon, (about 2 slices)
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 leek , white part only, halved lengthwise, rinsed and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 8 ounces Yukon Gold potatoes, diced
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels, (about 4 ears)
  • 1 1/2 pounds tilapia fillets, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, (optional)

Directions

  1. Chop bacon and cook in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Add oil to the pan. Add celery, leek, salt and pepper and cook until the vegetables just begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add broth, potatoes and corn. Bring to a gentle simmer. Cook until the potatoes are just tender and the corn is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Stir in tilapia and thyme; return to a gentle simmer. Cook until the tilapia is cooked through, about 4 minutes more. Remove from the heat.
  3. Stir in half-and-half, lemon juice and the reserved bacon. Garnish with chives, if using.
