Coconut Sockeye Salmon Chowder

Coconut Sockeye Salmon Chowder

Recipe inspired by Kimberley Hasselbrink’s “Coconut Seafood Chowder”

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 medium shallots, sliced crosswise
  • 2-inch knob fresh ginger, sliced into coins
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 (15-ounce) can full-fat coconut milk  
  • 3 tablespoons curry paste
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 12 ounces baby potatoes, halved
  • 2 portions Drifters Fish Sockeye Salmon, skin removed & cut into 1 ½ inch pieces
  • 12 to 16 sprigs of cilantro, leaves plucked from stems
  • 3 to 4 green onions, white and pale green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 2 limes, sliced into wedges
To prepare

Heat the oil in a large stockpot over medium-low heat. Add the shallots and sauté until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the ginger and sauté until fragrant, about 3 minutes.

Add the broth, coconut milk, curry paste, and fish sauce and mix thoroughly to combine. Cover, increase heat to high, and bring to boil. Decrease the heat to medium-low; add the potatoes and cover. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the salmon and simmer until the salmon is just cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes.

Ladle into serving bowls. Garnish with the cilantro leaves and green onions, and serve with lime wedges on the side.
