"After my husband and I caught four large salmon, my mother-in-law combined several recipes to create this delicious chowder. She served it with a salad and hot fresh bread," says Cindy St. Martin of Portland, Oregon. "Now I make it regularly, too, especially for guests, who always ask for the recipe."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 30, 2011

This soup was delicious. I revised it a little bit to make it a bit healthier: I used turkey bacon and, like the other reviewer, I added it last. I also added Chipotle Chili Powder from Spice Islands to add some smokiness. Lastly, I added some chopped celery with the potatoes and onions.

This recipe was very tasty, and light enough to do even in summertime (it isn't thick like clam chowder).

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 3, 2010

Very good soup. However, next time I will wait until the last minute to add the bacon so it doesn't get soggy.
