I could have sworn I rated this already! Anyway, we had some leftover smoked salmon a couple of weeks ago, and I didn't want it to go to waste, so I decided to make this. It was quite the ordeal, I don't know if the flour/butter/veggie ratio is off or what, but I couldn't get my roux to turn out right. It may have been my pot b/c I had problems w/ it later (will explain in a minute), but the roux just wouldn't set up right, and I've made roux many times, and never had a problem. Anyway, then it took over an hour to get it to simmer, this is why I think I had a problem w/ the pot, maybe it was too big or something, (just a regular stock pot), but the chowder was very thin and runny, never did thicken up, and I cooked it for HOURS! It could have been user error, but I was just frustrated by the end of the process. However it did have a good flavor and my son gobbled it up, so all in all I would call it a success. Will try again, in a few months!! lol
