"Easy and healthy salmon chowder in the slow cooker. Feel free to kick up the veggies, just be sure to add extra broth or water to compensate."
Serving Size: 1 (432 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"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 Heaven and so easy. My daughter loved it too! I had to use 1/2 TB dried Dill & 14 oz canned Salmon.I put all ingredients except the salmon and cream cheese in first. Turned out LOVELY!! Thanks Again! We will make this often :)"
"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."
"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!"
"This was delicious!! The only thing I did different was I made it with fresh salmon, it turned out Great!!! Thanks for the recipe :)"
"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!"
"Great recipe! I ended up substituting goat cheese for cream cheese, and quinoa for brown rice, but I don't think there's any way this recipe isn't good in its original form, as well. I have already made gallons of this stuff. Just delicious. Thanks, yogiclarebear!"
"I made this dish today and had it for dinner tonight after an evening of mountain biking. It is hard to believe that this is a low calorie dinner. It tastes fabulous! Thank you. I'll be making this again... soon."
"This was good! I ended up using 2 cups more broth, though, as there didn't seem to be near enough liquid to serve 4. I also used dried dill, about 1 t. To simplify things for future users, the measurements I got for the veggies (I weighed them) were 2/3 c onion, 2 medium carrots, and a TON of celery LOL. Sorry, I ran out of celery before I hit 6 oz. I used the leaves, too, which I highly recommend. I couldn't really find the rice after cooking for so long, so next time I will probably just leave it out. Altogether a solid recipe; DH says it is definitely a keeper!"
"Ive made this chowder a few times and its a really great recipe and something a little different. I used a little bit of cornstarch to thicken it up just a little."
"i am definately goin to try this. it seems like a decadant version of my moms salmon soup , which she got the recipe from my gram. and my three yearold loves that soup so i am goin to try this one for the whole family"
