Salmon Soup

  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • ½ green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 oz fresh dill, divided, chopped
  • 5 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 lb gold potatoes, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 1 tsp dry oregano
  • ¾ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 lb salmon fillet, no skin, cut into large chunks
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon

  1. Heat 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil in a large pot until shimmering but not smoking. Add green onions, bell pepper, and garlic and cook over medium-heat, stirring frequently until fragrant (about 3 minutes or so). Add ½ of the fresh dill, and stir for 30 seconds more.
  2. Now add broth, potatoes and carrots. Add spices and season with kosher salt and black pepper. Bring to a rolling boil then lower heat to medium and cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are tender.
  3. Season salmon with kosher salt and gently add it to the pot of simmering soup. Lower heat and cook for a few brief minutes until salmon is cooked through about 3 to 5 minutes or until salmon is cooked and flakes easily.
  4. Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice and remaining dill.
  5. Transfer salmon soup to serving bowls. Serve with a side of your favorite crusty bread. Enjoy!
