Salmon in Hot Company

aka salmon soup with traces of Thailand (thaidoftande laxsoppa)

This is one of my favourite quick fish soup recipes. We eat a lot of fish here in Finland and you can make this with salmon or another type of fish. The salmon is, however, a greasy fish and suits this recipe well.

It takes about 20 minutes to cook the soup. We usually have it for lunch but it could be a starter just as well. This is what you need for two people:

2 tbls oil
1 – 2 tbls chili paste (red or green, choose according to taste)
300 g salmon or other fish
leek or spring onion
2 dl coconut cream
2 dl fish stock

100 – 150 g noodles
1/2 red chili pepper
1 lime

  1. Clean the fish leaving the skin on and cut it into pieces that fit in your kettle.
  2. Heat the oil and stir in the curry paste.
  3. Add the fish stock and the fish. Let cook at a low temperature until the fish is done.
  4. Skin the fish pieces and sieve the stock. Add the coconut cream, stir and add the fish.
  5. Cook the noodles in a separete pot and as instructed in the package.
  6. Cut the leek into thin stirpes. Seed the chili pepper and cut it into small pieces.
  7. Put everything together on the plate or a soup bowl for each eater. First take some noodles, then ladle in some broth with salmon and, last, decorate with leek, chili pepper and coriander. Squeeze in some lime.
