Scandinavian Salmon Soup | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Salmon is enjoyed world wide in a variety of ways. Here is a recipe from ‘The Cupboard Drawer’ for a Salmon Soup that with just a little modification can be turned into a hearty stew as well. Salmon is often referred to as the “red meat of the fish world” not only for its rich texture and appearance, but it is probably the most nutrient filled fish in the sea. The species had many variants with Chinook, Soho, Silver, Pink, Chum and Sockeyes found in North American Waters. Salmon are spawned in fresh water, migrate to the oceans and live in salt water, then return to fresh water to spawn the next generations. This life cycle is unique to the Salmon species and the difficulties of returning upstream give the meat a firmer density and texture than other fish. Which ever type of Salmon you choose, it’s sure to be good so Do Enjoy…

Big John - Reads like it must be good - except I don't go for cauliflower. I will probably follow the rest of the recipe and try to think of a substitute. Gus

Yummy, you did a great job, growing up with my mom being Finnish we had something very much like this, I was lucky to have a dad that was a commercial fisherman so we had lots of seafood, salmon is still one of my favorites, I have been away from the Hub's, family stuff, but now Iam back and I sure have missed it, take care
