Smoked Salmon Chowder

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Margaret3

A great way to use one of those salmon gift packs you got for Christmas. Uses no heavy cream and little butter, making it pretty healthy, as the only real oil is super healthy fish oil. The Wondra flour is not essential, but i like to use--makes for a smooth soup fast. Freezes well.

Indulgent tasting chowder that really is full of healthy ingredients. This makes a BIG pot of soup. My husband loved it so much he insisted on packaging up a serving to take to his mother. The only changes I made were to use 1 tsp basil and 1 tsp oregano rather than the dill and to add some fresh mushrooms I had on hand. This is going in the permanent file, Margaret. It's delicious even though all I had was 4 ounces of Christmas gift smoked salmon packs.
