Salmon Chowder

Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars

"'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.'"
