I thought this would be a fun and seasonal recipe to share. We have family who always go up to Alaska for fishing and bring us home fresh and canned salmon so I thought I would brush the dust of this recipe, make a batch, and share. This recipe produces 6 servings and despite the long list of ingredients is super easy to make!

3/4 lb salmon, skin removed and cut into 1/2″ cubes
1 onion small diced
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 stalks celery small diced
2 tsp salt
pinch of pepper
1 large potato, peeled and cut into 1/2″ cubes
1 tsp fresh thyme chopped
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 C white wine
1 1/2 C water
1/2 C cream
1 C clam juice
1 bay leaf
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/8 C fresh parsley minced
  • 1. Sauté onion, garlic, celery, pepper and salt for about 6 minutes.
  • 2. Add the potato and continue sautéing for a few more minutes.
  • 3. Add the wine, thyme, cayenne, bay leaf, and water.
  • 4. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
  • 5. Add the salmon, cream, lemon juice and parsley then turn the heat off.
  • 6.Let the soup sit for 5 minutes and the salmon will be cooked beautifully. Taste and add more salt and lemon juice as needed. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
  • This is a tasty and simple recipe. I hope you enjoy it! Tried this recipe? Let us know what you thought of it!

Being surrounded by the Great Northwest for the entirety of my life I have come to really enjoy the outdoors, loving the rain almost as much as the fleeting sunshine and all the activities that come along with it. I've always loved animals especially those of the equine and canine variety. My intense interest in dogs led me to start writing about the adventures that Indy, my black lab, and I shared. Aside from animals, I love to read and write and college really fostered this love and I now find myself being able to couple my two great loves of writing and dogs.
