Tasty Tuesday - Salmon Chowder

If you're a soup fan and like salmon, you're sure to like this delicious Salmon Chowder.  It's thick and hearty enough to be a stand alone dinner or serve a small bowl of it with a sandwich or salad for lunch.

Salmon Chowder

1 cup of chopped onion
2 celery ribs thinly sliced
2 tblspns butter
2 tblspns flour
1 tspn salt
1/2 tspn dill
4 cups milk
2 cups of fresh or frozen cauliflower, chopped and cooked
1 large 14 3/4 oz) can of salmon, drained, skin and bones removed
1 10 oz pkg frozen peas thawed
1/2 cup grated swiss cheese
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

In a large pan or dutch oven, saute the onions and celery in the butter until soft.  Stir in the flour to make a roux and continue to cook for a minute to cook the "floury taste" out of the flour.  Add the salt and dill.  Stir in the milk and keep stirring while you bring it to a boil.  It will thicken.  Turn the heat down to medium-low.  Add the cauliflower, peas and salmon and heat through.  Stir in the cheeses, until melted.

Serve immediately.  (4-8 servings)
