"My husband and I have never met a salmon we didn't like -- until this chowder. Husband disliked the texture and I found the unappealing flavor lingering in my mouth until I found some chocolate to get rid of it. We threw it away, something I rarely do. I can't pinpoint the problem, but it just tasted terrible to us. I'm so sorry, because I really wanted to like it."

"I don't have much experience with cooking fish, but this recipe looked easy enough. I only had smoked salmon. I didn't have the green pepper or the zucchini, but this still turned out great. My husband and I enjoyed this with a salad and rolls."

"Very good and easy to make - I use a 32 oz low sodium chicken broth and have a tendency to add a little more of the veggies than is called for - but I like to have leftovers."
