RECIPE: Poor Man's Oyster Stew

earlNovember 3, 2008

I make what I call Poor Man's Oyster Stew. It's the same as I make oyster stew but instead of oysters I use a 14 oz. can of Salmon. Was wondering if anyone else made something similar but different so I could do a change up every once in awhile.

I saute about 1/2 cup each of chopped onion and bell pepper in butter until tender then add the picked over salmon then milk to cover well, with salt and pepper to taste. Then bring to a simmer and serve.

Here are a couple of recipes that you might enjoy, Earl. I must say that the chowder recipe isn't something that I personally enjoyed, but our cousin and my Ken just loved it - so maybe somebody else would too - I don't know where he got the recipe from. The Etoufee from CindyMac is just outstanding!
