Many people wish for abundance and plenty on for the New Year and, since fish produce a very large amount of eggs at once, they're a typical New Year's food. To celebrate wishes such as abundance and plenty, I'm going to share a few seafood recipes with you over the next couple days.
I don't know about you, but even though I feel blessed and very satisfied with my life, I won't stop wishing for plenty of happiness for the new year.
Read on for today's recipe, Salmon and Corn Chowder, a true bountiful catch of the day.
3 tablespoons flour3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 medium onion, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 red pepper, diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups mini potatoes, boiled and halved if large (I used a mixture of yellow, red, and purple skinned potatoes leftover from the night before)
4 cups chicken or seafood stock
1 14 oz can of creamed corn
1 cup evaporated milk
2 cups of salmon, cooked and flaked
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper, to taste
1. Melt butter in a soup pot on your stove at medium heat and stir in the flour.
2. Add the onion, celery, red pepper, and garlic and cook until the veggies soften, 2-4 minutes.
3. Add the broth, corn, and evaporated milk and increase the heat so the soup boils and thickens.
4. Reduce heat to medium low and stir in the salmon and potatoes to warm. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
5. Serve and enjoy!
This soup brought me plenty of happiness. I hope it works for you too.
