Salmon Chowder

Seafood chowders are one of my favorite types of soup – the flavor reminds me of sitting by the ocean! I love making soup or stew any time of the year. This chowder is full of delicious veggies and big chunks of salmon (yum). Fresh dill ties the whole dish together! Serve this with crackers or crusty bread.

  1. Cook bacon in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.

3. Add onion, carrot and celery to the pot and saute for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

4. Add clam juice, half and half and potatoes. Increase heat to high and bring soup to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

5. Add bacon, salmon and dill and stir to combine. Season soup with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and garnish with more fresh dill.
