Anniversary Chowder

WE celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with dinner at a lovely pre-Revolutionary War restaurant in Pennsylvania, where I enjoyed a wonderful salmon chowder. I wanted to duplicate it, so I put this recipe together, using salmon we had purchased in Alaska. It's a thick hearty soup. -Barbara Harrison, Ringoes, New Jersey

    I made this for my mom and me and it was just OK. Nothing to make again.

    I had high hopes for this recipe because it looked fantastic.... I tried to saute the veggies, but it took a really long time (I ended up simmering them in white wine). Next time, I'm boiling the potatoes first (they took forever to soften) and sauteing the onions on their own. We also used 3 cups half and half and 1 cup 2%, which made it a bit less rich. I'm also going to add some dill, which I think will really round out the flavor. Thank you for the recipe! **Update** It's way better on the second day!
