No corn, no chicken broth. This salmon chowder is a bit different. Even picky eaters and kids like it. Found this recipe on the internet.

We loved this chowder! It is full of flavor and lovely color. I made as directed, using milk. The clam juice adds so much of the flavor to this wonderful chowder. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Kathy!

This is an excellent chowder. I used lobster (because I had to use it up) instead of salmon and replaced the dill with a squeeze of lemon. It's very quick to make and yield a full rich flavor. The use of the clam juice is what makes this in my opinion.
