Smoked Salmon and Corn Chowder

Nourish Restaurant in Sequim, WANourish, Sequim’s new garden-to-plate restaurant and gathering place, is featuring a series of meals created using items from Nash’s farm share boxes each week. This week, expect Nash’s own (non-GMO) corn in your box.

2 ears of corn, shucked
3 medium leeks, cleaned and sliced (3 cups)
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 large russet potato, peeled and cubed
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ounces smoked salmon
4 cups fish broth
1 cup heavy cream
Dill for garnish

Corn on the cob

Locally grown (and non-GMO) corn on the cob!

Heat olive oil. Sauté leek and garlic.

Add potato, celery salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Add broth and simmer until potato is tender, about 10 minutes.

Add milk and salmon and bring the temperature back to a simmer. Do not let it boil or milk will separate.

As the mixture simmers, stir in cream.

Top each serving with chopped dill.
