Hearty Salmon Chowder

Recipe by Nova Scotia Cook

Just a bit different than your usual chowders. Makes for a good supper when we are in the midst of a wintery storm here in Nova Scotia. Warms the heart and feeds the soul.

We eat salmon at least twice a week, but it never occured to me to make a chowder with it. I'm so glad I came across this recipe - I have a completely different way to cook salmon now! This was hearty, delicious and healthy. The recipe didn't state when to add the zucchini, so I added it with the potatoes and carrots. I also made half again as much so I could use the whole 12 oz. can of evap. milk and a large can of creamed corn. This is really good served with oyster crackers.
