Cajun Salmon & Sweet Potato Chowder

The inspiration to make this bowl of love came from these five beautiful words… Cajun Salmon & Sweet Potato Chowder.  That was enough for me to go buy a beautiful piece of salmon and get to work.

Cajun Salmon & Sweet Potato Chowder

Even though this dish is labeled a ‘Chowder’…this soup is quite light.  The little bit of heat from the Cajun seasoning is balanced beautifully by the sweet potatoes and carrots.  This recipe made four hearty servings and the leftovers reheated nicely.  Serve with a green salad and a hunk of crusty bread and you’ve got a wonderful dinner, for any season of the year.
