Yield:
4 servings

Ingredients
  • 3 cups bottled clam juice or low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 pound red-skinned potatoes, diced
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 sprigs dill, plus chopped leaves for topping
  • 12 sprigs parsley
  • 6 sprigs thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 wide strip lemon zest
  • 1 pound salmon fillet (preferably wild), skin removed, cut into 4 pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Chopped fresh chives, for topping
Directions

Put the clam juice in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave until very hot, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, scatter the potatoes, carrots, celery, onion and garlic in a 6-quart slow cooker. Tie the dill, parsley, thyme, bay leaves and lemon zest together with twine and add to the slow cooker. Pour in the hot clam juice; cover and cook on high, 3 1/2 hours.

Season the salmon with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Stir the heavy cream into the vegetables in the slow cooker, then partially submerge the salmon in the liquid. Cover and cook 30 more minutes.

Discard the herb bundle; season the chowder with salt and pepper. Serve topped with chives and dill.
