    mums the word's Note:

    This came about because I had some extra cooked salmon fillets to use from the previous night. You could certainly add your own choice of veggies to this (carrot, corn, whatever) and change the cheese. I thought it turned out surprisingly good considering I was winging it. Hope you like it. (I have amended the cooking time based on reviews.)

      We liked this - it was a tasty and easy way to use up leftovers. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the time it takes to make it was a LOT more for me. It took a little over an hour from start to finish. That said though, the flavor was WONDERFUL, and it is something I'd make again when I have leftover salmon. I made some changes based on personal preferences and availability of ingredients. I used the bottoms of green onions to soften with the celery, corn instead of peas, twice the amount of pepper, and left out the dill. I did put in some parsley, and since the soup was not thick enough (for my tastes) I added some cornstarch. Oh, and I did leave out the swiss because I didn't have any. Thanks for this recipe!

      Made this last night. Only had red potatoes on hand so I left the skins on. Didn't have cheddar so used all swiss. Used skim milk and it still tasted nice and rich--I'd make salmon just to get the ingredients for this soup--my DH and I really liked it! Thanks for a nice change on leftovers.

      Really good chowder - inventions often turn out better than formal recipes! This chowder is very similar to a salmon hotdish we make with mashed potatoes, cheese, and a white sauce. All in all, a good combination. I had to serve the shredded cheese on the side because we couldn't all agree on it; but it was good with or without it. This recipe made our leftover salmon into something that everyone wants to eat! Thanks for sharing your idea.
