Hearty Salmon Chowder

Anyone who knows me knows I have a weakness for seafood.  I love it!  Recently I made a quadruple batch of this chowder recipe to feed people at a church function.  It received rave reviews.  There are a lot of ingredients, but they make the chowder.  It is absolutely delicious.  One bowl is chock full of healthy goodness.
