Nordic Salmon Soup

Nordic Salmon Soup Recipe

Today we continue to get acquainted with the food culture and cuisine of the Nordic countries! In Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and the northern part of Western Russia (The Republic of Karelia), this Nordic Salmon milk soup is called differently. In Finland, this soup is called lohikeitto, n Sweden it is laxsoppa, in Norway it is fiskesuppe, in Russia it is Nordic Salmon milk soup. The taste and manner of cooking this soup in all countries of Nordic is the same. We love the cuisine of Nordic and for us this soup was just a discovery. In my homeland, they do not prepare soups with milk and we thought “How can you add milk to the soup?”. Nordic Salmon soup was very tasty and satisfying. It was just a shock for us! I am sure that this soup will be prepared more often in the future!
