But unfortunately my family wasn't fond of it, so I won't make it again.  It was easy to prepare and if you like chowder and smoked salmon, you should give it a try.

Easy!

And delicious! Whipped this up in no time and my BF and I both loved it. Flavorful and filling but not too heavy for a summer meal. I sautéed a few shrimp to go with it and served with corn muffins as suggested. Will definitely do again (and again!)

This was so easy and very flavorful. I added black pepper. Next time I will try the cracked pepper smoked salmon. I served it with corn bread and the combination was great.

This dish was a hit with my family! Great with sourdough cheese toast! I used leftover salmon instead of smoked salmon!
