Reviews forSalmon Chowder
"This soup was fabulous! No one else in my family wanted to try it, so I scaled the recipe and made a single serving. It was amazing! The smoky bacon flavor was really good, and I added just a little pepper at the end. I lightened it up more by using skim milk and fat free half and half. Delicious!"
"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)."
"Very good soup. However, next time I will wait until the last minute to add the bacon so it doesn't get soggy."
