1. Place potatoes and carrots in a medium saucepot; cover with water. Boil over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes. Drain potatoes and carrots in colander and pour cold water over. Let cool for 5 minutes. Remove potatoes and carrots and dice.

2. Meanwhile, preheat large stockpot over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Mist with cooking spray. Add celery and onion and saute for 2 minutes or until onions become translucent.

3. Add oil and flour, whisking briskly. Add milk, whisking in a 1/4 cup at a time (this will create a roux, or thickener, for your soup).

4. Add broth and cook for at least 5 minutes. If soup seems a little thin, add more flour (no more than 1 tablespoon), a 1/2 teaspoon at a time, and whisk briskly. Add salmon, diced potatoes and carrots, corn and paprika. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Add dill just 1 minute before serving.

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal & baking powder. Then whisk in egg whites, milk & paprika

3. Spray an 8 to 10 in baking pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into pan. Bake for 20 mins or until golden brown on top. Cut into 2 in squares
