I made a Salmon Chowder a few weeks ago – I used smoked chowder which wasn’t what the recipe called for but it turned out great.  This recipe actually called for smoked chowder – equally delicious and distinctly different.  The original recipe: Smoked Salmon Chowder from Epicurious and I almost followed it.

Once simmered – a little heavy cream to add richness – this was delicious and very satisfying on a cold night. YUM!
