Add the rest of the fish stock, the cream and the cooking liquid from the mussels. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a summer and add the chopped raw fish and the cooked mussels out the shell. Season with salt and white pepper and cook just until the potatoes and fish are cooked through.
  3. Ladle the chowder into four bowls and finish with the chopped fresh parsley. Serve with crusty bread on the side.
