Fresh Corn and Seafood Chowder

Maggie ^O^


What to do with small bits of leftover stuff .. well you make soup !

We had some grilled salmon left over so it was go time.

Added some fresh sweet corn which gave it another little something special and raw shrimp and it was a winner.

The grilled smokey flavor of the salmon was so special, but you could even do this with baked salmon !

Next time I am adding scallops and clams .. why not make this the full meal deal!

Super simple, no waste and delicious to boot !
