Salmon and Corn Chowder

This is a quick version of a classic fish chowder. We're using salmon but any firm-fleshed fish will do, such as cod, scrod, or halibut. Leaving the skins on the potatoes adds color to this pale soup. Prep: 10 minutes; Cook: 15 minutes.

Yield: Makes 4 servings (7 1/2 cups)
