Sockeye Salmon. Another reason why I love living in beautiful British Columbia! My husband has gone fishing almost every day, and has come home with the daily limit (2 per person with a license). Last night I tried a new salmon recipe. New England Salmon Chowder. It turned out great! I found the recipe on cooks.com, here it is:
NEW ENGLAND SALMON CHOWDER
1 lb. can pink or red salmon, drained
3 med. potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
2 c. boiling water
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. butter
2 med. onions, chopped fine
3 tbsp. all purpose flour
1/8 tsp. pepper
3 c. milk
In saucepan, add salt to boiling water. Add potatoes; cook till almost done. Melt butter; add onions; cook till transparent. Stir in flour and pepper; add the potatoes and salted water. Simmer 15 minutes. Remove skin and bones from salmon; add to potatoes. Stir in milk. Heat to just a boiling point. Serves 6.
I altered the recipe a bit (like I always do!) and added a handful of frozen mixed vegetables, and 2 stalks of celery.
