Smoked Salmon Chowder



Preheat your Napoleon Grills Prestige P500RSIB-1 to 500ºF, firing up two of the burners on high and leaving two off, to set up for direct and indirect grilling.

Grill the quartered potatoes over direct flame until charred. Move to indirect heat and continue cooking until almost tender, but not cooked all the way through. Potatoes should still have a little bite to them in the center. When the potatoes are cool, dice them into bite sized pieces.

Preheat a Lodge 5 Quart Dutch Oven over medium heat. Melt the butter in the dutch oven. Add the onions and celery. Sweat until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and flour. Cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Add the tomato paste then vegetable stock slowly, stirring constantly. Bring to a simmer. Add the diced potatoes. Simmer until the potatoes are fully tender.

    I tried this recipe yesterday and we loved it. My wife’s first comment was about the smoked taste the potatoes added. I have to work on the smoked salmon recipe, actually I just need to plan better. I got so busy that I did not end up taking out of the brine for 6 days. No bend in the fillet, still it was tasty. Thanks for the recipe.
