This recipe was an entry in our "Soup and Stew" contest. I LOVED it! I would recommend doubling the recipe but I'm posting it as a single batch.

I made a 3 serving size and it seems to me that the amounts are a bit off. It ask for less that a 1/2 cup of onion and 1/4 cup of celery and up to 1 1/2 cup of diced potatoes with only one cup of stock. I used a rounded 1/2 cup of potato and 2 cups of stock to make the soup (adding an equal amount of 1/2 and 1/2 instead of more stock would would help to make it more of a chowder in my opinion). I think that it could use some tarragon and more sour cream as I found the flavor to be on the thin side however using the smoked salmon was a real plus and helped a lot. I liked it and I think that with a little seasoning boost I could love it.
