The first chill in the air means chowder on the stove. The is a perfect dinner for cold nights, and it makes a lot so we’re always able to invite an extra guest to our table. It’s creamy, flavorful, and hearty. Canned salmon can be replaced with fresh filet, however it’s so easy to find wild-caught Alaskan salmon on the shelves that it’s hard to pass up the convenience and cost of canned.
- 3 Tablespoons ghee (sub butter unless dairy free)
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 cups diced potatoes
- 3 carrots, diced
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
- 2 (16 ounce) cans salmon, drained
- 1 (15 ounce) can full-fat coconut milk
- 1 (15 ounce) can creamed corn
- Shredded cheddar cheese (optional, otherwise the chowder is dairy free)
Melt butter in a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat. Saute onion, celery, and garlic until translucent and tender. Stir in broth, potatoes, carrots, salt, pepper, and dill. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
Once potatoes and carrots are soft, stir in both cans of drained salmon, breaking apart large pieces. Add in coconut milk and creamed corn. Top with cheese if desired.
Serve with green salad and corn bread for a delicious filling winter dinner!
