Reviews for Northwest Salmon Chowder
"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."
"I used fresh salmon. This is an excellent recipe! I'll be making it again."
"This was absolutely fabulous! My husband couldn't say enough good about how wonderful it taste."
