I coined this recipe when my fridge gave out and I had to do something with all the fish I had in the freezer. It's a tasty winter chowder with some summer hints, courtesy of the lemon. This is best served with crusted bread!

Ok let me preface this by saying I am not a big salmon fan but that is why I chose this recipe. I was hoping that it would lessen the strong taste of salmon which it did. The soup was good but didn't have a lot of flavor. I think if you added veggies like celery carrots and onions this would be great! I also think you need more than just a pinch of the thyme oregano and basil. I will definitely try this again but modify some. Definitely make with crunchy bread! It makes a world of difference. For those of you who aren't big salmon fans try this it's worth it! Read More

This was a delicious recipe! I dont really like salmon but know I should be eating it. I will make this recipe again. Changes I made- I didnt have time for a slow cooker so I boiled the potatoes (and some carrots) cooked fish in olive oil and then creamed them in the blender. Then I added the milk spices and some corn. My whole family loved it! Read More

I was really looking forward to trying this recipe all day. I'm sorry to say I was very dissapointed. I don't know if I did something wrong but I followed the recipe exactly. The broth was extremely watery and the potatoes were hard despite leaving the cooker on a few extra hours. I may end up trying this recipe again but with some modifications. Read More

A nice place to start and a great way to use some freezer-burned salmon. It was okay as written (and that's how I rated it) but really came into its own when I made it with broth instead of water and added some leeks garlic and carrots! Then we topped each bowl with a squirt of lemon juice. Yum! Thanks for the idea of the lemon. Read More

I made this soup again the other with a few adjustments and it was amazing again!! For all those worried about watery soup you need much more than a pinch of each herb (think 1 teaspoon) and also about a teaspoon of sea salt. Crusted bread is a must and adding a can of baby clams can substitute some of the salmon or just make the soup meatier. So good! Read More

Yes. I liked it. I was running late so I cut the 2 whole potatoes into 4 sections each then i put them on a flat plate and Microwave them for 6:30. I then got my pot of water and added all the ingredients. After the microwave beeped I tossed in my potatoes into the already boiling water I then added my salmon that i cut into 4 pieces then i put 15 minutes timer. After I served. Tasted GOOD my husband said. He said it would taste better with cat fish. So i shall look. Read More

too watery. I added carrots for a little more flavor. I was happy that my kids actually ate it though.... Read More
