Bean and I wanted a quick hot lunch, and after eating some pretty fake food at the Aquarium yesterday, I wanted it to be homemade. I adapted an already quick chowder recipe to be even faster. This whips up in 15 minutes - great for sneaking in pre-naptime!
Is it scary that I went to the Aquarium yesterday and today am cooking fish? :)
Salmon Chowder(adapted from a Robin Miller Quick Fix Meals recipe) -1 tbsp olive oil -1/2 tbsp butter -1/2 onion, finely shopped -Tarragon -1 container (4 cups) fish stock (this was a little more liquid than my preference - I would probably use half the stock next time) -1 can diced potatoes -1 can crisp sweet corn kernels -1 can pink salmon -1 can low fat evaporated milk
-In a medium soup pot, saute onion in olive oil and butter until softened and lightly browned -Stir in tarragon and saute an additional minute -Add drained and rinse cans of potatoes and corn and saute 30 seconds -Add fish stock, bring to a boil, and simmer five minutes -Lower heat to medium-low -Add drained salmon and evaporated milk and cook an additional 2-5 minutes
