Salmon Chowder

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (153 votes)

The flavor of this salmon chowder is greatly enhanced by adding either fresh dill or dried tarragon: each herb lends its own distinctively different and appealing character to the soup. Even if you don’t keep instant mashed potatoes in your pantry, it’s worth picking some up for this soup. They give the soup a thick, chowder texture without any heavy cream or butter. Leftover mashed potatoes work too, but give a slightly less-velvety texture.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Amazing! I used mushrooms and mashed lintel beans as well, plus some canned salmon and my own mashed sweet potatoes (no sugar). So delicious and thick. It looks and tastes like Christmas morning! "

I used fresh cauliflower - 2 small heads, so probably a bit more than the recipe called for. Also, added a tad more celery & carrot than was called for as I chopped a bit too much, but I just threw in all in. Couldn't get low sodium broth, just used 2 knorr stockpots disolved in 1 liter hot water. I used dried dill as that's all I had. I thought it was pretty tasty, but definitely a bit too thick, so I added some low fat milk at the end to thin it out a bit while making it taste creamier. Overall, I really enjoyed it & will make again. Plenty left over too, so hopefully it freezes well.

So tasty!

Love it! I used leftover broccoli instead of cauliflower, and added a little leftover corn. Perfect! Cheated a little, and added a tiny bit of cream to make a pretty swirl on top of each bowl. My hubby loved it! What a great recipe!

Simple to make!
