Smoky Tomato Salmon Chowder

You guys are not going to believe this...

Wait for it...

Seriously, you should sit down...

It's Favorite Things Friday!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, if you are having trouble breathing, dial 911, and then keep reading because this is a good one.

It was a soup night, and fish was on the menu, so I made this Better Homes and Gardens recipe! Delish!

The only thing I changed was that once the soup was heated, I added 1/2 cup of heavy cream to make it more bisque- like.

Smoky Tomato Salmon Chowder
Start to Finish: 45 minutes

3 6-oz. fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillets
1 to 2 tsp. chili powder
2 medium red sweet peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
1 medium sweet onion, cut in 1/2-inch slices
1 jalapeño pepper,* halved lengthwise and seeded
2 14-oz. cans chicken broth
1 14.5-oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 large tomato, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
2 Tbsp. coarsely chopped fresh Italian (flat leaf) parsley
1 medium avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
Chili powder
1. Thaw salmon, if frozen. Pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and refrigerate while roasting vegetables.
2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place sweet peppers, onion, and jalapeño pepper, cut sides down, on foil-lined baking sheet. Roast 15 to 20 minutes. Loosely wrap vegetables in foil; let stand 15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, place salmon in a shallow greased baking pan; fold under thin edges. Bake 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork; keep warm.
4. With sharp knife loosen and peel off skins from peppers; discard skins. Coarsely chop peppers and onion; transfer to large saucepan. Add broth and undrained tomatoes. Bring to boiling, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper. Fold in chopped tomato and parsley.
5. To serve, ladle chowder into shallow bowls. Break salmon in pieces and divide among bowls. Top with avocado slices and sprinkle with chili powder. Makes 6 main-dish servings.
6. *Hot chile peppers, such as jalapeños, contain oils that may burn the skin and eyes. Wear plastic gloves when working with hot peppers or thoroughly wash bare hands with soap and water after handling them.

There are still plenty of soup days left this year, so definitely add this to your menu!!!!!

In joy, troye!
