Another Show Stopping Recipe
I created another show stopping recipe for the Entrée and Grilling Categories with my second entry for the Cedar Bay Blogger Recipe Challenge.
My delicious Salmon, Jalapeño and Corn Chowder really hits the spot; even on the hottest days of summer. Today we reached 110 degrees Fahrenheit here in Houston, Texas; but we paid the heat no mind and grilled up some Cedar Bay Grilling Company Atlantic Planked Salmon and made some crazy good chowder.
I really like that Cedar Bay Grilling Company takes all the guess work out of preparation when it comes to seasoning and grilling planked salmon. Cedar Bay salmon products come pre-seasoned and ready to be placed directly into the oven or onto the BBQ with little-to-no preparation required.

Bloggers received two free samples for testing and recipe creation: Sugar & Spice 24 oz Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon and one 24 oz Applewood with Orange & Ginger Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon. Both flavors are absolutely delicious and a breeze to make. I used the Sugar and Spice flavor for this recipe.

- While salmon is cooking, chop celery, onions, jalapeno, and mince garlic. Cut corn from cob.

- I used chicken stock because I had it on hand but any good flavored stock or broth will do.
