Default salmon chowder

I baked salmon for the first time tonight, and it came out perfect! I flaked it up and made it into salmon chowder. My family loooooved it! 2 went back for 2nds and everyone's bowl was emptied. There was very little left. Maybe enough for one to have a snack. It was a huge success!

The recipe says you can use canned or pouched salmon, but I went for fresh, raw, unskinned and baked it. I think fresh would probably taste better, but the choice is yours.

Salmon Chowder
12 oz flaked cooked salmon (I used fresh, raw, unskinned filets)
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
6 oz chopped celery
3 oz chopped onion
5 oz chopped carrots
1/2 c uncooked brown rice
8 oz low fat cream cheese
salt & pepper
dill weed
parsley
  • Bake salmon at 400F for 7-8 minutes on each side or until done. Let cool. Flake.
  • In a pot put in (estimated...I didn't measure) 1.5 Tbsp butter and 1.5 Tbsp canola or olive oil. Saute vegetables for 5 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Add in chicken stock. Bring to a boil.
  • Add in brown rice and reduce to simmer. cook for time recommended on package.
  • Cube cream cheese, add to stock and stir until melted.
  • Add in salmon, 1/2 tsp dill weed and a pinch of parsley. Cook until heated through.

Very healthy and delicious! I'm taking everyone's word for it though...I don't like fish. lol!!!

That sounds pretty good! My DH is allergic to fish so I might try to cut the recipe in half. If do, I'll post here how it turned out. Vicki
