I've lived on a farm in the Yakima Valley all my life. I have a big garden, and by the end of fall, my cellar shelves are full of canned fruits and vegetables. This recipe uses some of the root vegetables I grow…along with the delicious salmon that is so plentiful here. —Josephine Parton, Granger, Washington

"Absolutely fantastic! I didn't have the cream of corn, but did have a 16 oz package of frozen corn. So, I made the cream corn: Over medium to medium low heat in a small pot. Whisk together 3 Tblsp of EVOO and 3 Tblsp all purpose flour using a whisk. Add 1.5 tsp of broth base (I used vegetable) and whisk together until dissolved. Add 1 cup of water while continuing whisking. Take approximately 1/2 cup of the corn and finely chop with a chopper.

Add this with the rest of the package of frozen corn. Continue whisking and heating until just thickened. I then measured 15 oz of the creamed corn on a kitchen scale and added it to the chowder mix. My husband ranted and raved about this chowder and said I needed to make it for his relatives on our next visit to see them."

"This is my go-to salmon chowder recipe!!! I do doctor it up a bit, however... I use baked fresh salmon, 2 TSP dill, an extra cup each of broth and potatoes, i use whole milk instead of half and half (i have kids, so that's what's on hand,) 3 cloves of garlic....aaaand voila!!!! Everytime I make it, I have to invite my mother or she'd be upset! Haha VERY yum!"

"This is THE best seafood chowder I've ever had. I did double the onioin and garlic and dil, plus added 1/4t. of cayenne pepper because we are spicy people. :) Thanks for a great recipe!"

"I won a friendly soup contest put on by some friends with this soup over the weekend from 24 entries. I changed the recipe a little by adding clam juice and some crab meat. It was delicious. It was easy to make and came out perfect on the first try."

"My family loved this, even my son who doesn't care for fish. I cooked 2 fresh salmon filets for this and used a carton of chicken stock with 2 cups of water. I have a big crew to feed."

"This is a great salmon recipe. I did add white pepper, 1/4 c. clam broth, tarragon-dash, fresh dill from my garden and 1/4 c, milk. I used my hand-stick blender to thicken with some boiled potatoes. I am happy that myi husband does not like fresh cooked salmon, only canned. Enjoyed the soup myself."
