Lohikeitto - Salmon Soup


I've been meaning to make so many posts. Despite having cooked quite many dishes I wasn't able to take proper photos as it was so dark and grey the whole time. The photos for this post were taken weeks ago when it was still quite dark (I actually rushed home from work to be able to take some shots of the leftover soup from the previous day). Luckily this weekend was so sunny that I'm starting to wake up from the winter sleepiness.

Finnish Salmon Soup


1 leek or 1 onion
2-3 carrots, cut into coins
6-8 potatoes, cut into chunks
700-800 ml water
whole black peppercorns
1-2 bay leaves
250 ml milk
100 ml cream
500 g salmon, cut into 1,5-2 cm pieces
fresh dill
salt

Cut the leek or onion in small pieces. Saute in oil or butter and add carrots. Pour in water and add peppers, salt and bay leaf. Bring to boil. Add potatoes and cook about 10 minutes. Add the milk and cream and cook until the vegetables are done. Bring to boil and add the salmon and dill and take away from heat. Check the saltiness and add more if needed. Serve with bread.
