Specialty Recipe

Minnesota Salmon and Wild Rice Chowder

This offers a distinctively different variation on the now-traditional wild rice soup. The broth is very thin; if you prefer it thicker, double the amount of flour.

Ingredients
1 Tablespoon butter
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 leek (white part only), finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon freshly minced garlic
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1-1/2 Tablespoons flour
Three 8-ounce bottles clam juice
1/2 cup chopped roasted tomatoes, or substitute 1 cup chopped canned tomatoes
1 cup cooked wild rice
1/2 pound salmon, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
1 cup heavy cream
1-1/2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil, or substitute 1 teaspoon dried
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in stockpot. Add onion, leek, garlic, celery, and thyme. Cover; cook until vegetables are tender. Stir in flour. Heat mixture for 3 to 4 minutes. Whisk in clam juice; cook until thickened slightly. Add tomatoes, wild rice, salmon, cream, and basil. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until the salmon is cooked. Add salt and pepper to taste.
