3 cloves garlic, chopped

The other 3 cans of broth

2 cans salmon (no bones)                  

2-4 cups half and half (optional)

2. Then add 3 cans of chicken broth, diced potatoes, diced carrots, salt, pepper, and dill.

3. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and cover, simmer for 20 minutes (or until the potatoes are cooked).
