Salmon Chowder

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by larchie

On a quest to work more salmon into our diets, and to look for good winter recipes, I put this down - and IT IS FANTASTIC. I agree with the reviewer who also called it a budget stretcher - it is that, too. We are all about this salmon chowder now.

I grew up on the coast, but never cared for clam chowder. I decided to try this because I had one large salmon fillet I wanted to use up. I cut the recipe in half & used regular corn & vegetable broth. I left out the green pepper because I hate them and added a bit more dill. I ended up taste testing several times prior to adding the salmon and it was so delicious. Also, this is such a budget stretcher to feed four with just one fillet - I will make again! Made this again adding peas and w/o salmon - YUMMY!
