Great lakes salmon chowder

Introduction

My husband makes this soup, generally with leftovers after we have baked salmon. It is an adaption from a midwest living recipe. Great with homemade bread and salad.

  • This Chowder Was Wonderful! I Also Used Fat Free Evaporated Milk Instead Of Cream And Lactade Free Milk As I Can't Have Dairy. I Used Steelhead Because Of The Price Of Salmon. Next Time I Would Add More Corn. My Husband Loved It Also. 5 Stars In My Book. - 10/24/10
