A great way to use one of those salmon gift packs you got for Christmas. Uses no heavy cream and little butter, making it pretty healthy, as the only real oil is super healthy fish oil. The Wondra flour is not essential, but i like to use-makes for a smooth soup fast. Freezes well.
1 (16 ounce) smoked salmon fillets
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup coarsely chopped onion
1/2 cup coarsely chopped celery
1 cup coarsely chopped green pepper
4 tablespoons wondra flour
2 (14 ounce) cans fat-free chicken broth
3 cups red potatoes, skins on,cut in golf ball size chunks
2 cups carrots, sliced fairly thick
