Lohikeitto (Finnish Salmon soup with potato, leeks, and dill)

One thing I really enjoyed eating during our recent trip to Finland was their traditional salmon soup. On a cold evening, all you need is some hot soup and bread, a glass of your favorite white wine ( a rich Chardonnay maybe) and someone to talk to about nothing and everything.

You may serve meatballs as a second course.

Butter - 2 tsp for cooking, 1 tsp (optional) for topping
Leeks - 1, chopped
Water or chicken broth- 2 cups
Potatoes- 2-3 medium sized, diced into cubes
Salmon fillet - 1 lb, cut into cubes
Onions- 1 medium sliced
Heavy cream- 1-2 cups
Dill- fresh, chopped 1 tbsp
Fresh ground pepper and salt to taste
1 bay leaf

  1. In a dutch oven, add 2 tsp butter, bayleaf, potatoes, onions, and leeks. Saute. Add salt and pepper. 
  2. Add chicken broth and bring the mixture to boil. Add heavy cream and dill. Add fresh salmon cubes and cook till the fish is just cooked.
  3. Top with another tsp of butter and serve warm with bread
