Anniversary Chowder Recipe

Anniversary Chowder Recipe

WE celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with dinner at a lovely pre-Revolutionary War restaurant in Pennsylvania, where I enjoyed a wonderful salmon chowder. I wanted to duplicate it, so I put this recipe together, using salmon we had purchased in Alaska. It's a thick hearty soup. -Barbara Harrison, Ringoes, New Jersey
