Smoked salmon chowder

This makes a very rich and creamy chowder.

4 tablespoons unsalted butter or bacon and drippings
1/2 cup chopped onion (about 1/4 of a large onion)
4 ounces smoked salmon, flaked (not Nova Scotia style)
3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup carrots, sliced thin
1/2 cup celery, sliced thin
1 cup red potatoes, diced, skin on
2 cups half-and-half
Fresh-ground black pepper to taste

Melt butter or drippings and sauté onion, garlic, and half of the salmon until onion is tender. Add flour and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in broth and chopped vegetables and cook 4 minutes, stirring. Cover and simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir in half-and-half and remaining flaked salmon, add pepper to taste.
