  • 400 g salmon fresh
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 100 ml heavy cream
  • 50 g unsalted butter
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 10 g fresh herbs (parsley)
  • 1 l water
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Nicely clean fish under running water, pat it dry with paper towels; remove bones and skin from the fillet, set them aside. Take the salmon fillet and cut it into large cubes.
  • Take a pot with 1 liter of water and let it boil on the high heat. Add bones and skin that you had from salmon, add a pinch of salt and cook fish stock for about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, sauté grated carrot and chopped onion with garlic for 5 minutes. Use butter for the purpose, let it melt in the skillet over medium heat and then add vegetables.
  • Pour all the cream into the skillet with sautéed vegetables and boil the mixture for 5 minutes (to add more flavor add a pinch of garlic powder).
  • Take all the bones and skin from the fish stock and drain it through a fine colander to make sure that it will be transparent. Let the stock boil once again and add potatoes.
  • In 5 minutes, add cubed salmon. Cook it for 10 minutes, soup should simmer slightly.
  • Add sautéed veggies with cream to the soup and cook it for additional 5 minutes. Season soup to your taste, add salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Cover the pot with a lid and set the pot aside for all the aromas to incorporate. Add some chopped fresh parsley to your plate with salmon soup before serving. Enjoy your meal!
