Easy Salmon Chowder Recipe

Easy Salmon Chowder


“Storms lasting 3 to 7 days, accompanied by driving rain and wind-whipped snow, hone the men’s tempers and send them in search of better harbors. But a day or two of good fishing out on the 50-fathom edge, with sooty shearwaters and petrels whirling overhead and a few shiny king salmon coming aboard, cause them to forget the discomforts.”

Simple to make and packed with omega-3s, this Easy Salmon chowder has potatoes and celery in a hearty chicken soup base. It’s pure Alaskan comfort
food. A variation of this recipe came from Jim and Pam Moore who fish on the F/V Aljac and sent this note:  “We have so enjoyed this chowder through the years. So much a favorite, that we intentionally make a large quantity!”
