Excellent thick & creamy chowder! I did alter the recipe a little. I fried 3 slices of bacon & used the bacon fat & a TB of butter to saute the onions,celery & 1 clove of garlic while the lge sauce pan boiled the potatoes & carrots. I drained & saved the potato water & added all the vegetables together in the saucepan. I added 1 cup of potato water back in w/the 2 cups of chicken broth & let the vegetables simmer together. I had 2 leftover halibut steaks that I added to the small can of salmon & tore into small pieces & also crumbled the 3 bacon slices. Served w/sour dough bread & fruit. Very filling & oh,so good! Thanks,Gigi! And,thanks to Arctic Mama for serving it to her Hoosier family!
