Canadian Aboriginal Peoples Seafood Chowder Toody Ni

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Olha7397

This rich and delicious chowder was a favourite with customers at the Toody Ni Grill. It can be a meal in itself with bannock, though it is also great as a soup course in a full dinner—provided you don’t get too carried away with the serving size. Serve a small bowl or cupful as one course in a wonderful Native feast for all your guests.

Soooo good We really loved it even though I skipped the salmon. Thanks for sharing, made for My Tree Chefs 2013!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, bring fish stock to a boil.
  2. In a large heavy soup pot over medium high heat, heat bacon fat. Saute onion, celery, garlic and bay leaf until onions are transparent.
  3. Stir in flour and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. (The result is what chefs call a roux.) Slowly add hot stock to the roux, stirring well to prevent lumps. Bring to a simmer.
  4. Add potato, carrot and green pepper; simmer until vegetables are tender.
  5. Add clams, salmon and red snapper. Cook over low heat until fish is cooked through and tender, about 10 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in just enough cream to turn the chowder white.
  7. Serves 10 to 12 as a starter, 6 to 8 as a main course.
