  1. Place bacon in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Cook bacon until crisp, then remove to kitchen towels to drain and crumble. Drain fat from the pot, reserving about 1 tablespoon. Set heat to medium and fry onions in the reserved bacon fat until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add potatoes and fill pot with just enough water to cover them. Bring to the boil, then cook until potatoes are almost tender, about 5 minutes. Add fish pieces, evaporated milk, full fat milk and butter. Bring to the boil, then simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls and top with crumbled bacon.
