Salmon Chowder

I love chowders, and this one is quick and easy to make. Salmon is one of the best fish sources of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fat, an essential fat that supports gut health. The added bonus? Kids love it, too!

This recipe is from - The Secret Life of Your Microbiome - Why Nature and Biodiversity are Essential to Health and Happiness (www.newsociety.com/Books/S/The-Secret-Life-of-Your-Microbiome), by Susan L. Prescott, MD, PhD and Alan C. Logan, ND and of course that it’s Marlies Venier’s recipe.

  • 2 Cups coconut milk
  • 1 Cup chicken broth

Directions

Place a large pot over medium heat, and add 2 tbsp. oil. Add the onion, carrots, celery, kale, and potatoes. Sauté for 8 minutes.

Add the milk, broth, and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer and continue to cook.

In a large frying pan, add the remaining 2 tbsp. oil and cook the salmon, skin side down, until crisp and brown. Flip and cook the other side for about 2 minutes. Remove and discard the skin. Chop the salmon and add it to the pot.

Poach the salmon for about 10–12 minutes. Make sure the potatoes are tender before serving. Add salt and pepper to taste.
