Salmon Chowder

Salmon-Chowder

I happened to make this salmon chowder late one April afternoon, simply because that was the best time for me to cook, and I knew it could easily be reheated for dinner.

About 4:30 my picky eater walked in the door, through the kitchen, and found his way to me, sitting at my desk.  He exclaimed, “Can I have some of that salmon soup?  It smells delicious!”  I was glad I had made dinner early because he had to eat and run.  And boy did he love that soup.  He had two bowls of it, all the while saying how good it was.

That sure puts a smile on a mom’s face.

I know it’s now May and many of you are faced with warm or even hot weather.  I’m hoping there are still a few cool, maybe rainy days when this soup can be enjoyed.  If not, bookmark it for the fall.

    Thank you, Linda, for adding that note regarding the coconut/cow’s milk. No confusion this time ’round!

    ;D

  3. I love this recipe! My boyfriend and I were big fans of regular Chowder, but stopped having it due to a dairy allergy. Can’t wait to try out your version at home.

  4. Jeanne says:

    Thanks, Linda, for suggesting which alternate milk in the chowder. With more than one allergy, I appreciate the consideration. I think I’ll try the coconut but perhaps almond, since I really like that in chowder.

  5. Although I not a great fan of salmon I love this chowder!! I made it last month and have it again on my menu for this month. Thank you so much for such easy and great tasting gluten free ideas!!
