Spring is just around the corner, so they say, but the wind is howling today and the temperatures still feel frigid. I’m breaking out my most favorite winter comfort foods this week in preparation for a busy, busy week.

This recipe is written using canned salmon. While cooked salmon can certainly be substituted and would be delicious, I like to have some recipes I can whip up for a quick dinner using mostly pantry ingredients. And canned Alaska salmon is a staple I always try to keep. It’s so versatile from pastas to salmon burgers, to quick soups like this Salmon Chowder.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (I like turkey bacon)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup peeled and finely diced potato
  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dillweed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup frozen or canned (drained) corn kernels
  • One 14-ounce can salmon
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)

Instructions

Melt butter in a dutch oven over medium heat; add onions, celery, and carrots; saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add flour, stir until mixture is smooth. Cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in chicken broth. Add garlic, potatoes, dillweed, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until broth is thick and bubbly and potatoes are fork tender, about twenty minutes. Stir frequently.

Add milk, corn, and salmon. Heat 5 more minutes. Ladle into bowls and serve with a sprinkling of grated cheese on top (if desired) and crumbled bacon.

  1. I’m a bit nervous making recipes that haven’t been rated yet, but the ingredients were exactly what I had on hand, so I took a chance and I’m glad I did. This was delicious! I didn’t have pre-cooked bacon, so I diced my bacon up and cooked it in my pot. I removed the bacon and soaked the grease up with a paper towel, then started with the butter, onions, etc. I deglazed the bacon burny bits when I added the chicken stock and I believe it gave so much additional flavor. I was a huge fan of not having to add heavy cream like so many other recipes call for. The starch from the potatoes made this thick enough as it was. I’ll be making this again and again and again. I think it would work perfectly for leftover turkey stew too, if I switched the dill for thyme/rosemary!
    My husband and 2 year old also loved this recipe!
