    I have one in a cook book tomorrow, but I will have to wait to post it till tomowwor. If I remember.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    If you're looking for uses for smoked salmon, try a pizza. We've done it with sour creme and flaked smoke salmon, easy and good!

    Thanks alot B-radford. I'm glad it worked out. Yeah it turned out awesome for myself as well, I added some Cholula and man that chipotle makes it even better. Happy hunting (or fishing, it's that time of year).

    I checked my cook books and only found corn chowder, seafood chowder, and clam/oyster chowder. I will give this a try with my last smoked salmon from last year.

    garnede, either you smoked a TON of salmon last year, or you guys don't eat it as fast as we do!

    I really look forward to trying the chowder recipe above when we get more fish. Sounds incredible.

    Default Great recipe!

    I used some crab meat and it was awesome. I did salmon for a work buffet and it was GONE in a matter of minutes!

    My wife has been using a very similar recipe for a couple years now, turns out fantastic every time! We substituted canned salmon for smoked salmon about half the time with no noticeable difference in taste.

    Lightbulb Gwin's Lodge Recipe

    Anyone who has fished the Russian River or at least passed through Cooper Landing while driving along the Sterling Highway has probably made a pitstop at Gwin's Lodge.

    The place is famous for its award-winning smoked salmon chowder and, after dining there on more than one occasion, I can personally vouch for its deliciousness.

    For years now, I've been meaning to whip up a batch at home. However, there's one key ingredient that has been a bit of a challenge to track down: fish stock. Always figured I'd boil a few filleted sockeye carcasses, but just haven't got around to doing it. It might be easier and just as good to substitute with chicken stock instead.

    Anyway, for those interested in trying another option, here is the Gwin's Lodge version of smoked salmon chowder:
