"When you live near some of the best salmon fishing in the world, you're always searching for imaginative ways to serve it," explains Mary Lou Pearce of Victoria, British Columbia. "I came up with this creamy chowder that uses salmon in place of shellfish. We love it."
"Clam Chowder for a Crowd is a very popular dish at church camp and our family reunion," notes Mrs. Lynn Richardson of Bauxite, Arkansas. "It has a thinner broth than most chowders but is very flavorful," she confirms.
"Not only is this soup a quick fix, but it's oh-so-tasty," states Judy Junwirth of Athol, South Dakota. Dressing up canned soups allows you to enjoy the comfort of clam chowder with a fraction of the work.
This chowder was invented by my niece, who took a basic potato soup recipe and added some of her own ingredients. The results were "souperb"! I was a cook at the time, and I tried her recipe at work. It was the hit of the season!
Here in the "Cornhusker State", we make lots of dishes with corn! Even my kids love this soup, I've discovered. Although we live in the city, we love to spend time at my parents' cabin on a lake surrounded by farms and cornfields.
I started cooking at a local restaurant when I was 16 years old. This creamy chowder was one of the soups we made. The recipe had been passed from cook to cook— but had never been written down, until now!
This is an old recipe handed down through the years. It always tasted best when made by a friend of mine who was a fisherman. There was nothing quite like sitting down with friends on a cold snowy night, enjoying this hot chowder, fresh biscuits and good conversation.
