What you do.
Melt the butter in a large pot and add the onions. Cook onions until they become opaque. Next, add all the ingredients except for the fish and creamed corn. Simmer for approximately sixty minutes. Be sure to stir, so the soup doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Now add the corn and fish and simmer for another ten minutes. When served with fresh baked and steaming bread this meal just can’t be beat.
