I was a little skeptical about giving this to my family. They are not really soup eaters, and they are slow to try anything new. Boy, was I surprised when they all loved it. Even my super-picky 7-year-old ate this and loved it. I stirred in a handful of shredded Colby cheese toward the end. What a wonderful chowder. We will definitely eat this again. This has put an end to my searching for recipes for leftover salmon.

I made this for our family get together at Christmas. It was really easy and I got a lot of compliments on it. The leftover soup was even better!

Really good chowder! Love that it's so low calorie too. Made it just as written. One word of advice: when measuring the liquid smoke, don't hold your measuring spoon over the soup pot! I didn't think about it and had far too much splash out! Tried to retrieve/spoon some out to rectify my mistake. Turned out delicious just the same. Thanks for the recipe.
