Meatless Meals :: Salmon Chowder

This recipe for Salmon Chowder, perfect for the remaining days of Lenten Fasting and Abstinence, was submitted by my friend Jacinta.   Thank you Jacinta!

Salmon Chowder

1 (7 1/2-ounce) can salmon
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 garlic clove, finely minced
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup diced potatoes
1 cup diced carrots
2 cups chicken broth
(substitute with vegetable broth during lent)
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup broccoli
1 (13-ounce) can evaporated milk
1 (10-ounce) package frozen corn kernels, thawed
Minced parsley

1. Drain and flake salmon, reserving liquid.

2. Saute onions, celery and garlic in butter. Add potatoes, carrots, reserved salmon liquid, chicken broth and seasonings. Simmer, covered, 20 minutes, or until vegetables are nearly tender.

3. Add broccoli and cook 5 minutes. Add flaked salmon, evaporated milk and corn; heat thoroughly. Sprinkle with minced parsley to serve.

Note: I like to chop all the vegetables (except the corn) with the Pampered Chef chopper so they are all small and uniform.

  1. This sounds really tasty - I'm anxious to try it.

  2. We just had this Salmon Chowder for dinner! Yum Yum!!
    The only changes we made was we added another can of evap. milk and made into a rue to thicken it and cream it up a little.
    Very good! Will plan to have this one again! Family Favorite!!
    Will also plan to pass this recipe on to others!
