Izzy's Salmon Chowder

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Izzy Knight

My famous chowder. I spent some time try to figure out the exact measurements of ingredients; but it's a flexible recipe. Be creative! You can cook this ahead of time (even 2-3 days; just be sure you don't nibble @_@); this soup tastes better with time.

I found this took much longer than 10 minutes to prep. My DH liked this Chowder but I didn't care for it that much. I guess I just prefer a different style. I prefer a light broth type instead of a thick stew. I did make some changes. I used fresh salmon instead of canned, which I think was nicer. And I used salmon broth that I had made, instead of chicken broth which I also liked. It gave the chowder a nice salmon taste. I did like using the fresh corn that was suggested in the recipe. That was a nice touch. And I think I'll use that idea again when I make a different version of Salmon Soup. Just not a chowder next time.
