Salmon Chowder

The following recipe, video and photography were provided by our partner, Chef Billy Parisi.

Fresh, flavorful and full of good-for-you fish, this Salmon Chowder has it all.

Perfectly creamy and filled with savory bacon, potatoes and corn off the cob, the true star of this simple soup is Heinen’s frozen 2-pound Arctic salmon. Frozen to naturally preserve freshness, and for your convenience, this beautiful salmon is sustainably raised by a third generation of family farmers in the Arctic Circle – Kvarøy Arctic.

Packed with more omega-3’s than any other farmed salmon, this soup supports your health, supports a family of water farmers and pleases the taste buds.
