Paleo Salmon Chowder

I’m taking a break from pumpkin today and making this hot and delicious salmon chowder that is full of veggies and protein! I love making this with a combination of canned AND fresh salmon – but you can do one or both – whatever is easier for you! As there are no flour/grains, dairy or legumes in this recipe, it’s very paleo friendly!

  • 3 slices of bacon, diced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried dill or 1 Tbsp fresh dill
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1-2 cups finely chopped or small cauliflower florets
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • One 7.5oz can salmon (red, pink or other) including juices
  • One 14 oz can coconut milk, full fat
  • Extra minced dill for garnish


  • Cook the bacon in a large saucepan over medium-low heat until bacon fat is released. Add onion, dill, bay leaf, black pepper, cayenne, and cook until bacon is firm but not crispy
  • Add celery, cauliflower and chicken broth and simmer until vegetables are almost tender, 5-7 minutes
  • Add salmon chunks and juices and simmer for a few more minutes
  • Stir in coconut milk and simmer
  • Remove bay leaf before serving

Super mom tip: This recipe does great in the freezer. Freeze small batches of soup for easy re-heating later!
