This recipe is brought to you by me cleaning the kitchen to see what I have.

1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup
1 can of water (or milk if you have it)
2 stalks of wilted celery from the back of the veggie drawer
A handful of stale tater tots or hash browns
1 small package of smoked salmon (about $3 or $4 worth)

Optional - A few tablespoons of sour cream

Dump soup in non stick pot, add water.  Wash and chop celery, add to pot.  Dice salmon and add to pot.  Add  the potatoes, cover, and heat over lowest setting for an hour or so. (This works great in a crock pot, too.)  Stir and taste.  It's even better the next day, with Saltines crumbled on top.  Fresh ground pepper is nice, too.

You can also add diced carrots or frozen peas if you have them, and serve over buttermilk biscuits. 

Feeds two adults as a main dish, or four if you add a salad and dessert.

This may be a dumb question, but are clams prohibted by the kashrut diet? Lobster and shrimp are, cause they are shellfish, and clams are technically shellfish, but they are also completely different organisms from lobsters. Different meat, not even closely related.

Not a dumb question at all! For sea food and freshwater, in order to be kosher it has to have BOTH fins and proper scales. For example, catfish, rays, sharks, etc. are not kosher because of their lack of flat scales. Caviar can only come from kosher fish.

On a practical level, this rules out a lot of the filter feeders who tend to have high levels of toxins in them. Crabs and lobsters, while tasty, are basically the trash collectors of the sea, and clams, mussels and oysters eat their leftovers. Of course, this doesn't mean that I don't miss eating them, and I'm insanely happy when I find something that tastes similar. :-)

It is so easy, and really filling. I'll bet it would be awesome in a sourdough bread bowl.

I love me some chowder, seriously thinking about making this for myself soon. I'm wondering if I could use some chopped up raw potato instead of the stale tots/hash browns?

Of course you could, but then it wouldn't be "back of the cabinet Ghetto Chowder", now would it? ;-)

"Back of the cabinet Ghetto Chowder" LOL.
Y'know, that would be a great title and/or theme for a cook book! I know I'd buy it. And I'd LOVE to have you scrape up the crap in the back of my fridge and make something edible out of it!

P.S. If you steal this cook book idea and it gets published, you better give me a spot on the dedication page! ~_^

Are you kidding? I'd have you illustrate it! :-)

SWEET! I've never drawn ghetto food before. I need to go practice in case this cook book thing pans out!

> 1 small package of smoked salmon (about $3 or $4 worth)

How big is it in Seattle (how much salmon are in such package) ?

In Tokyo it would be 100 gramm of smoked salmon for $4 (or more) package.

Sometime in an ordinary supermarket in Tokyo I have seen packages of kosher smoked salmon from Chile certified by the main rabbi of Chile! The price was same.

It's about $12.00 a pound. (Sorry, I such at international conversions.)

I use the wood smoked "kippered" salmon, not the cold processed "lox" salmon. You could use either one, but they would taste very different. I prefer the former because of the sweet, smoky taste. It reminds me a little bit of bacon. :-D

It's about $2.65 for 100 gram
