Salmon and Corn Chowder
Chowders and stew are my specialty, because I enjoy making use of the bounty at hand—especially the wonderful variety of seafood from the cold waters of the North Atlantic, I devised this recipe years ago, and it remains one of my favorites. I often make it for my daughters and their families when they visit.
