Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1/4 pound sliced bacon; cut crosswise into thin strips
1 onion
1 1/4 pound boiling potatoes; (about 3), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
3 cups chicken broth; low-sodium or homemade stock
1 3/4 teaspoon salt
2 2/3 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
1 pound salmon fillets; skinless, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup frozen baby lima beans; thawed
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

In a large pot, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pot. Add the onion and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the potatoes, broth, bacon, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt to the pot and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Put the corn kernels in a food processor and pulse six to eight times to chop. Add the corn to the pot and cook, covered, until the potatoes and corn are just done, about 5 minutes longer.

Add the salmon, lima beans, the remaining 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, and the pepper. Bring just back to a simmer; the fish should be just cooked through. Stir in the half-and-half and serve the chowder topped with the chives.

Notes

Variation

If you're not a lima-bean fan, substitute another vegetable, such as petite peas.
