This is a decadent and delicious chowder that is the perfect comfort food for a wintry weekend night! And it’s quick and easy, and super healthy to boot. Have a piece of my Keto Kornbread on the side to complete this satisfying and tasty meal.

And if you want to make the chowder more like the traditional, you can add cooked, cubed baby turnips (in place of the traditional potato pieces). A great nutrition boost, turnips are 8 grams of carbs per cup. So if you add 1 cup to the whole soup, that’ll add just 2 grams of carbs per serving = still low carb and Keto friendly. 🙂

This soup is versatile, too – if you don’t like salmon, or don’t have any on hand, you can use just about any other cooked fish or seafood, and it’ll be just as dynamite!
