The fish, used in place of the bacon often found in traditional chowder recipes, adds heart-healthy fats and protein. Great made ahead, this soup gets better with time.

How to Make It

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 4 minutes. Add potato and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until potato is tender. Add corn kernels and cream-style corn; cook 5 minutes. Stir in peppers. Ladle 1 1/4 cups chowder into each of 4 soup bowls. Divide salmon evenly among bowls. Garnish each serving with 1 teaspoon chives.

a delicious chowder, nice way to use hot-smoked salmon. fast and easy, one can make a batch in just a few minutes. i think next time i will try frozen or canned corn to make it even easier.

This is a lovely, savory chowder. I always double the batch every time I make it.

i've made this several times and think it's delicious the smoked salmon really is a great substitute for bacon! I think next time i'm going to add some roasted new mexican hatch chilis to give it some spice.

One little ingredient made all the difference with this recipe: Old Bay seasoning. I put a couple teaspoons in and it made the soup outstanding.
