Simple Salmon Chowder II

"This is a hearty but mild flavored fish chowder. It's a great way to use a piece of salmon that's too small to do much else with. Serve with toasted sourdough bread."

  1. Dice the bacon and fry in soup pot until crisp. Remove bacon to paper towel.
  2. Add chopped onion to the bacon grease and cook until the onion has softened a bit. Add chicken stock, scalloped potato mix, undrained can of corn, and fresh ground pepper (to your taste). Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, trim the tapered edges from the salmon filet. Smash the trimmings with meat pounder and add to the pot. Check the remaining filet for stray bones and remove. Cut salmon into 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch cubes and reserve.
  4. When potatoes are rehydrated but still a little firm, add the salmon, bacon, green onion, and the dill. Cook for 5 more minutes. Add the milk and evaporated milk; stir and cook until heated through.

This was so easy to do on a weeknight after work. Can compete with restaurant chowders. I was skeptical to use a packaged scallop mix, but it turned out great. The recipe does not make it entire...

I altered this recipe a bit. I used leftover cooked potato cubes instead of scalloped potatoes, added 2 tbsp. of flour to thicken the soup slightly, frozen corn instead of canned, and I did not...

I just about passed this one up due to the packaged potato mix. Glad I didn't. We had put a large salmon fillet on the grill the night before and I had a few pieces left. I did not have evapo...

I modified this recipe for a Soup Cookoff fundraiser--and won first place! I used cubed potatoes instead of the scalloped mix. To thicken, I mixed together several tablespoons of cornstarch wit...
