Thai Salmon Chowder
A chowder is a chunky and hearty soup typically consisting of fish or seafood, most commonly clams, bacon, potatoes and milk or cream. It is a popular North American dish, originating from the very first European settlers and each state has it’s own interpretation. New England is the one I just described. Manhattan swaps milk for tomatoes. The more southern states use sweetcorn. Rhode Island uses a clear broth rather than milk or tomatoes and Newfoundland use cod instead of clams. So you can see there are lots of varieties.
This is my own interpretation of a chowder. I use salmon, but you could easily swap it for cod if you prefer. Milk has been swapped for coconut milk to give it that Thai twist and potatoes have been swapped for sweet potatoes. Some may argue nothing like a typical chowder but I follow similar principles when cooking it and I was inspired by several chowder recipes.
