Salmon Chowder



  • 4 slices turkey bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (5.5 ounce) package scalloped potato mix
  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound salmon fillet
  • 1 cup 1 percent milk
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill


  1. Dice bacon and sauté in soup pot until crisp. Remove bacon to paper towel.
  2. Add chopped onion to the bacon grease and cook until the onion starts to get soft. Add chicken stock, scalloped potato mix, undrained can of corn, and fresh ground pepper (to taste). Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, trim the tapered edges from the salmon filet. Smash the trimmings with a meat pounder and add to the pot. Check the remaining filet for stray bones and remove. Cut salmon into 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch cubes and reserve.
  4. When potatoes are rehydrated but still a little firm, add the salmon, bacon, green onion, and the dill. Cook for 5 more minutes. Add the milk and evaporated milk; stir and cook until heated through.

    Omega-3 fatty acids, found in salmon, sardines, mackerel and other fatty fish, are known for their potential benefits in preventing heart disease, Alzheimer's disease and arthritis. It may also reduce cancer risk.

    Laboratory and animal studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids can impede the development of cancer in several ways such as: reducing the production of compounds that promote cancer; promoting apoptosis (cancer cell suicide); impeding the growth of the blood vessels tumors need to survive; and impeding the cancer-promoting activity of omega-6 fatty acids.

    Furthermore, some studies suggest that these fatty acids help reduce muscle loss associated with cancer and cancer treatment. By minimizing the muscle loss, you will have better strength, better tolerance for the treatment, and better recovery.
