Smoked Salmon Chowder Recipe
Yield: about 8 (1 cup) servings
Preheat your Napoleon Grills Prestige P500RSIB-1 to 500ºF, firing up two of the burners on high and leaving two off, to set up for direct and indirect grilling.
Grill the quartered potatoes over direct flame until charred. Move to indirect heat and continue cooking until almost tender, but not cooked all the way through. Potatoes should still have a little bite to them in the center. When the potatoes are cool, dice them into bite sized pieces.
Preheat a Lodge 5 Quart Dutch Oven over medium heat. Melt the butter in the dutch oven. Add the onions and celery. Sweat until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and flour. Cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Add the tomato paste then vegetable stock slowly, stirring constantly. Bring to a simmer. Add the diced potatoes. Simmer until the potatoes are fully tender.
