Smoked Salmon Chowder Recipe

Smoked salmon chowder is a hearty, cream-based soup that comes together quickly for a relatively easy weeknight meal.

As part of being more health conscious in 2011, I am going to incorporate fish into our diet once a week. I am aware that there is much more I need to research – baby steps – but maybe, with gradual changes here and there, this household of carnivorous will even try a meatless Monday. 😉

Smoked Salmon Chowder Recipe \\ PassTheSushi.comThis smoked salmon chowder is very basic. It came together quickly (in under an hour from prep to bowl) and could easily be a quick family meal. I didn’t love it though. To me it fell flat (almost lacking a much needed richness), however, it sparked some ideas for future versions that would incorporate more flavors. With some tweaking to suit your personal needs, this could be a household staple.

Obviously, you do not need an electric smoker to accomplish – I’m just writing down how I did it. This was a quick smoke, the fish was flaky, and with the short time in the smoker there wasn’t an over powering smoke flavor.
