salmon chowder

What's the weather like where you are? We've been dripping with rain for what feels like weeks. So even though it's almost June, we're still in soup, stew, and chowder mode around here.

I threw a bunch of stuff in the pot the other night and it turned out pretty tasty, so I thought I'd share...

salmon chowder
serves 3-4

1/4 onion, finely diced
extra virgin olive oil
2 celery stalks, diced
2 red potatoes, diced
2 cobs sweet corn, kernels removed
1 213g (7.5oz) can wild Alaskan pink salmon, broken up with a fork
2 C milk
1 - 1 1/4 C water
handful of fresh dill, roughly chopped
a little bit (1-2 Tbs) fresh chives, finely chopped
salt and fresh pepper to taste

In large pot, heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Saute onion until soft. Add celery, potatoes, a bit of salt, and saute a few more minutes. Add corn and water. (The water will not cover all the veggies.) Bring to a boil, then cover with a lid and turn down heat to low. Simmer until potatoes are done, stirring every so often to keep any potatoes from sticking to the bottom (about 15 mins.) Add salmon and milk and bring back to simmer. Turn off heat, stir in fresh herbs, season to taste, and serve.
