Leftover Grilled Salmon Chowder
Ingredients1 h 5 m servings 388
- Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain.
- Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; saute onion and celery in hot oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add flour, salt, and pepper to onion mixture and stir until well-combined.
- Slowly whisk milk into onion mixture; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Add potatoes, flaked salmon, peas, corn, and dill; cook until heated through, about 10 minutes. Stir Swiss cheese and Cheddar cheese into chowder until cheese is melted and heated through, about 5 minutes. Ladle chowder into bowls and garnish with green onion.
- Cook's Notes:
- You can use red or purple potatoes. Cooking the potatoes ahead reduces prep/cook time by at least 20 to 30 minutes!
- You can substitute any low-fat milk for the 2% milk. You can substitute Colby cheese for the Cheddar cheese.
- Use a large non-stick saucepan if possible.

Tasty and a great way to use up leftover grilled salmon. I made it exactly as stated. My whole family loved it.
