Fish chowder

This morning I prepared my mom's recipe of fish chowder in the slow cooker. She told me it was made special occasions in potlatches for the Chiefs and guests.

I'm sure I said it before, I'm a First Nation from the Toquaht tribe. Both my parents are hereditary chiefs (Very proud daughter).

The recipe is simple. 2 large salmon steaks, celery, onions, dill, salt and pepper. I like my potatoes so I made large diced ones in the pot, and small celery and onions diced. I put everything (0nly filled the water half of the slow cooker pot) in before I left for work at 8:30 on low. Everything was cooked at perfection after work. I thickened it to my liking with corn starch and lactose free milk. Served with 1 slice sourdough bread.

Thought I would share if anyone is interested :)

Thanks everyone. I'll share again if a different dish comes to mind.

Seafood is very big in our family. I just have to work out if my husband who is diabetic can have some of the dishes.
