You are to try the most delicious fish soup ever. First, I need to warn you! I am biased on the matter as salmon is my favorite type of fish (smoked, baked salmon is simply yummy). This soup if perfect as it balances out two flavors: creaminess of the stock and the taste of cooked salmon. They are a perfect combination. You add basic trio for the soup (potato, carrot and onion) and you will have a simple easy to cook fish soup.

There are several ways to make this Scandinavian inspired soup. You can add precooked or fish stock from the shop, but I prefer to make my own from all the left skin and bones (and the best thing to have for salmon stock will be the head). Thanks to adding cream, the taste of the fish soup is so tender and delicious. Just give it a try!
