Wild salmon, red palm oil and coconut milk is a magical trio of fat and flavor. These three ingredients transform into incredibly delicious chowder with the help of cubed kohlrabi or rutabaga, chicken stock, leek, celery, and fresh dill. This chowder is really creamy and rich, and a deeply flavorful meal brimming with healthy fats.
Red palm oil is fantastic in a creamy soup or stew, making the texture richer and smoother. Red palm oil is also extremely nutrient dense, rich in beta-carotene, vitamin E, CoQ10, vitamin K1, and other antioxidants. Once you get in the habit of cooking with red palm oil, it’s easy to go through an entire jar. In addition to soups and stews, use it to sauté or roast vegetables and cook eggs.
