Adirondack Salmon Chowder
From "My Adirondack Way of Cooking" by Musky Bob

If this doesn’t make your mouth water in anticipation on those cool Fall or Winter days nothing will. I use salmon mostly, but you can substitute most any type of fish.
· ½ stick butter
· ¼ cup flour
· ½ cup chopped onion
· 6 slices bacon, diced
· ½ cup diced celery
· 1½ teaspoons garlic powder not garlic salt
· 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
· 1 ½ cup diced potatoes
· ½ bag baby carrots, cut bite size
· 1 cup chicken broth
· 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
· 1 teaspoon salt
· 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
· 1 teaspoon parsley
· 2 bay leaves
· ½ teaspoon thyme
· ½ teaspoon dried dill weed
· 2 6” salmon fillets, cubed 1”
· 1 qt. milk
· 1 (15 ounce) can creamed corn
· 1 teaspoon cornstarch
· 1 12 oz. pkg. Cream cheese
1. Sauté bacon, then add butter, onion, broth, celery, carrots, and garlic powder & cook until all is tender. Stir in potatoes, old bay seasoning, parsley, bay leaves, salt, pepper, and dill.
2. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat. Cover, and simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
3. Stir in salmon, milk, creamed corn, flour, cornstarch, and cream cheese. Cook on medium, stirring frequently until heated through and cream cheese is melted.
4. Serve steaming hot with oyster crackers.
Please let me know how you like it. It’s one of my favorites.
