Our Southern Salmon Stew uses Wild Pink Salmon, red potatoes, diced only, heavy cream and rice. To reduce the fat content, substitute whole milk or 2% milk for the heavy cream.  The stew won't be quite as thick, but it will still be yummy!  


  • 1, 14.75 oz. can StarKist® Wild Pink Salmon, drained and chunked
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup large diced yellow onion
  • 4 “B sized” red potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ¼ tsp. dried thyme (optional)
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat oil in medium size stock pot. Add onions and sauté until just softened.
  • Add potatoes, cream, pepper, thyme and cook over low heat until potatoes are soft (they should be tender when pierced with a fork).
  • Stir in chunked salmon and heat until salmon is warm. Add salt to taste.
  • Meanwhile, cook white rice and reserve to the side.
  • To serve, spoon ½ cup of rice in a bowl. Top with the stew.
