The BEST Southern Salmon stew is one of those warm-your-soul, comforting, super-easy meals that Southern families love.
I have sweet memories of my Grandma preparing a big pot of salmon stew for our entire family.
She also made these crazy-good salmon patties. I guess you can say our family is a big fan of salmon family recipes!
Once I learned how easy salmon stew (or salmon chowder) was to make, I began making it very frequently.
Like every week.
This comfort food makes so many people happy because it uses just a few, fresh ingredients.
You’ll love how it adds more fish to your family’s diet in an unconventional way!
This is such a simple meal that my daughter whipped up the batch in these photos!
When the yummy aroma filled the kitchen, I knew I had to share the recipe with all of you!
You can see how easy it is to make in the video below!
Since you must be a huge fan of seafood soups and chowder, I think you’ll love this New England clam Chowder too.
No, it’s not a southern recipe…but it’s still good! <3
But let’s keep chatting about our Southern Salmon Stew…
This recipe takes ten, teeny tiny minutes to cook up — from start to finish.
Ten short, very aromatic, super anticipating minutes.
You can set the table and toss some croutons, bread or crackers on a plate and voila! You’re ready for a healthy, yummy, super-quick meal!
Our family always ate this soup with oyster crackers.
If you don’t know what those are, you are missing out!
They’re tiny crackers that are a little bit puffy and have the perfect amount of added salt to create a small, crunchy, and just a little bit salty cracker.
It’s like super tiny pitas…
You can see a picture of these crackers that are begging to be plopped into your salmon chowder below!
If you want to add a few extra bits of heartiness to this simple, southern dish, you can add diced, cooked potatoes and top the stew with some crumbled bacon.
Mmm….doesn’t that sound perfecto?
But, my family?
We keep it simple because life gets scarily stressful and hectic. We prefer our daily meals to be care-free, quick, homemade and crazy yummy — so we stick to this basic recipe.
If you don’t have fresh peppercorn at home, you can substitute black pepper, but go ahead and grab some fresh peppercorn for next time!
Get ready to dig into this awesome, southern soup that’s comfort for the body and the soul!
