On a rainy day I find that soup always taste so good. The thing I love with soup is that I can take almost whatever veggies I have at home and boil them in a stock to make soup. Also veggies that look a little “sad” fit well in the soup. As the variety of my veggies differ the soup can turn out differently every time. But basically I always have potatoes and some root vegetables in the fridge and they make a good and filling base for any soup.
Today I had a piece of salmon so decide on a salmon soup. Boiling water with fish stock and added a splash of white dry wine that I had in the fridge. I find it very handy to have small amounts of wine on hand for seasoning soups, stews, risotto and sauces.
I also added a tablespoon of tomato paste and a dash of dry thyme to flavour the soup base. I chopped up potato, parsnip and carrot and added them to the soup base. When the root vegetables are almost done I added some sliced celery and then the last 5 minutes I added the salmon cut in pieces. Important to always add the fish at the end as overcooked fish gets very dry!
Cut some fresh dill on top. And just beacuse I like it I also added a teaspoon of capers. They add some saltyness to the soup.
