Lummi Island Wild Smoked Salmon Chowder

9 oz pouch - Lummi Island, WA

Lummi Island Wild Northwest
Wild Smoked Salmon Chowder 

So, when Ian from Lummi Island Tuna, mentioned the Northwest Wild Smoked Salmon Chowder, we were a bit trepidatious. We were cautiously optimistic that it might be at least interesting.

The pouches arrived to test with a shipment of Tuna and though I was ready to test right away, there was a lag because of all the new ingredients we were testing and the influx of bean orders we were getting.

When I did finally find the time, this is what I found out.

It takes almost no time at all to make, so finding time wasn’t necessary. You can microwave for 2 minutes or boil for 4 minutes, open into a bowl and eat. That’s it. I chose boiling, not only because I wanted to see how the pouch withstood the process, but also because my very small microwave is too short to allow the pouch to stand up.

I cut the top off with one of my cool kitchen shears (I am currently obsessed with finding scissors of all kinds to use in the kitchen) though really any scissors will do, and poured the contents into one of my favorite bowls, and voila, lunch (at least on that day).

How good is it? Pretty gosh darn good! I was going to share with my son, who is home of course, and I did quietly yell for him to come and try, but he couldn’t hear me, so I ate the whole thing and enjoyed every single bite. (This was my third lunch as I had just tested two recipes prior.)

When we shoot the package and eat them he will get his chance to test then…

This is a Northwest chowder with Smoked Wild Keta Salmon in a cream base. It is indeed gluten free and thus has no mouth-feel of too much filler-thickener that you get at Fish and Chip places or from a can.

Though chowder is pretty easy to make, I never make it, a good New Englander I am not. I have been thinking about making chowder like foods, yet to me, I always enjoy them more if someone else makes it.

And with a long shelf life (not so long you wonder how is that possible) and easy to make anywhere, it is the perfect companion when you just don’t want to make dinner. And for a camping trip it might just be what the doctor ordered!

Nothing like a bowl of warm food to make a day a little better! Enjoy! Be safe …
