Salmon Chowder

While I have been making this delicious immune-boosting soup for over twenty years, I just recently wrote out the recipe so I could share with Greg’s sister and brother ‘n law, whom we recently had over for dinner, and this is what we served 😋  It was a cozy evening and we really had a nice time. Not only is Greg sweet ‘n special, but he has a sweet ‘n special family, too ❤️

Anyway, I’m happy to finally be sharing this recipe, so here it is:


3 or 4 russet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 white onion, chopped
3 or 4 celery stalks, chopped
3 or 4 garlic cloves, chopped
salt and pepper
olive oil
hot pepper flakes
1 can of corn drained or you can use frozen corn
1 box or more of chicken broth
1 can of evaporated milk
1 pound salmon filet with skin


1. Add a generous amount of olive oil to your soup pot and add the onions, celery and garlic

2. Sauté the onions, celery and garlic, adding salt and pepper as you gently stir to combine

3. Add the potatoes and season everything in the pot with dill, paprika and some hot pepper flakes.

4. Continue to sauté until the onions and celery are translucent and fragrant

5. Add the corn and stir to blend

6. Once everything is well blended and heated through, add the chicken broth

7. Let everything simmer on low heat until potatoes are just about at desired tenderness

8. Add the evaporated milk; if more liquid is needed, now is a good time to add more chicken broth

9. Lay the salmon filet, skin side up, on top of the soup

10. Cover pot slightly and simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes or until you can easily lift the skin off the salmon

11. After removing skin, break up the salmon into bite-size pieces

12. Add more salt, pepper, dill and paprika if needed/desired

Also, you might like to add a few generous shakes of Tabasco (my favorite addition to just about everything, LOL)

I like to serve this soup with cast iron skillet cornbread or a warm baguette.
