This is great! I used 3/4 c celery, 1/2 c carrots, 1/4 c onion. I used elftover baked salmon and 4c broth instead of 3, and left out the rice. Added black pepper and garlic powder and some leeks, and the insides of a leftover baked potato, and 1/4 c canned corn. FANTASTIC.

This was very good! It took only 4 hours for the vegetables to cook. The only change I made was to use only 1 tsp. of dill in this (I used dried; if you use fresh, 1 tb may be a good amount). I left out the salt, because my broth was salty enough on its own. Thanks for posting; this was a nice use for canned salmon.

Excellent soup! I made some changes, however. Since I had 3 salmon steaks that I had thawed out and refroze, I chose to thaw them again use them in soup for fear the texture or taste may have altered to much to grill them. So I think I about tripled the salmon, I doubled everything else except: 1) the cream cheese - just used one package 2) the rice, which I did not use. I used two diced red potatoes instead, and (3) the water ; I used none. I also diced the carrots instead of using shoe-string ones. And I added a sprinkling of Trader Joe's 21 Salute Seasoning. (Kind of like Mrs. Dash without salt.) This soup is good enough for company and I will definitely make it again. Three cheers to yogiclarebear for a fine recipe.

This recipe came together well and smelled wonderful slow cooking all day. I didn't measure veggies, but just put enough in that they were completely covered by the broth. I added a bit of garlic, some black pepper, and used seasoned salt. After tasting, I added some liquid smoke to give it more of a smoked salmon flavor. While I think it was good, using the fat free cream cheese gave it a weird flavor to me. I did taste the cream cheese before putting it in, so I know it was this and not the recipe's fault, hence not giving a bad review. I just hadn't used it before and didn't realize that I don't like it. I'll try this again with low fat or regular cream cheese to splurge. I also didn't add the rice or the extra water at the end, but I used two full cans of chicken broth, so it kind of evened out. Thanks for sharing!

I made this last night. It was really tasty. I did make a couple of changes though. I used 4c of stock instead of 3 and I used about 2 cups of diced potatoes instead of the rice. Nice hearty meal for those cold days of fall and winter!

Delicious recipe! I was so bummed when I realized I had given away the recipe booklet that had a great Salmon corn chowder recipe, so I came here... Even my boyfriend who really is the pickiest eater on earth loved this (the list of what he won't eat is amazing - no veges but corn, no fruit but apples, no eggs, no cheese, no pie... it goes on and on - it is a nightmare to cook for him). So if he loves it, you know its good. I did not tell him there was cream cheese in it or he would have never even tasted it :-)

I followed the recipe pretty close, but I left out the rice and added retangular slices of red potatoes and canned corn. The entire crock pot batch was gone in two days!

We had this for dinner last night and it was quite delicious. I left out the water because we like chowder to be on the thick side. I prepared it by adding some minced garlic and cracked black pepper. Next time I make this I think I will add some sweet baby peas.
Thank you for the recipe!

This was very yummy. I wasn't sure about exchanging cream cheese for cream, but it was actually very good with that little tang. And I love salmon anyway. Deliscious and filling. Thank you yogiclarebear!
