This salmon chowder recipe is a cozy year-round meal for seafood lovers! It highlights fresh salmon, bacon, and yukon gold potatoes. For best results, use seafood or fish stock.
See blog post for modifications including how to turn this into a fish chowder or New England chowder. Other waxy potatoes may be substituted for the yukon gold, but avoid starchy options such as russet potatoes. Adding the bacon back to the pot in Step 4 will ultimately soften it. If you would prefer to retain the crispness of the bacon, use it as a garnish along with the chives in Step 5.
