Salmon and Corn Chowder

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Irmgard

This recipe can also be made with clams but we like the salmon version better. It is a very easy soup to make and can even be made on a week night for a light dinner. The original recipe came from Canadian Living.

Thanks for a great recipe. I added some chopped, roasted red bell peppers and some mild, roasted green chile chopped which gave the chowder a wonderful touch of color and a subtle flavor enhancement. This recipe is a keeper.
