Salmon Chowder

I was so excited when I found this recipe in Come On In! Recipes from the Junior League of Jackson, Mississippi.  The combination of ingredients instantly appealed to me.   The most common way that I have cooked and eaten salmon is in salmon patties.  Phillip has also grilled salmon when we were grilling steaks and the flavor was delicious.  With cooler weather in our future, give this recipe a try.  You just might impress your family.
