This Salmon Corn Chowder is made with coconut milk and veggies. It’s very comforting and filling enough to have for dinner.
You can add different kinds of veggies to this soup, for example, carrots, celery, butternut squash or whatever you have on hand. You can also substitute onion with leeks or use a different kind of fish.
A little bit of lime juice and cilantro would make another tasty combination. In this case, use cilantro instead of parsley.
And if you love dill as much as I do, you can also make a Dill Salmon Corn Chowder by replacing parsley with dill.
Don’t like coconut milk? No problem, just skip it and make this soup without any coconut milk.
