Curried Corn and Salmon Chowder

Somehow, despite it being mid October we don’t have fall yet. To say I’m salty is a massive understatement. To bridge the gap between this weird fall one day summer the next weather I wanted to combine flavors that to me are quintessential to each season.

In the summer seafood is my favorite thing to make, and I’ve been on a huge salmon kick due to the health benefits. And then in the fall I’m all about decadent soups and curry. Then of course you have corn which is an ingredient that belongs to both seasons.

It may seem like a weird combo but it actually really works. I love the flavor of curry and salmon together, and then the corn adds nice little pops of sweet freshness.

Is it a fall or summer dish? Yes. Continue reading “Curried Corn and Salmon Chowder”

This dish is not only affordable and accessible. It’s also light, flavorful, and perfect if you’re lazy because there’s a seven minute cook time. The only thing you make is the ginger soy dressing. And of course the best part of any salad or poké situation, CUSTOMIZATION. So go nuts with your toppings!
