Finland - Lohikeitto

Lohikeitto is a soup with salmon and potatoes. Perfect for a cold day, which is always is in my house with the boiler not working!

Ingredients:

* Salmon
* Potatoes
* Onion
* Cream
* Salt
* Black pepper



Cut the potatoes into cubes and put in a pan. Add salt, pepper and a chopped onion.



Add enough water to cover the vegetables and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes.



Cut the salmon into chunks and add to pan. Also add some cream, a tablespoon of butter and chopped dill. Stir in the butter until it melts.



Simmer for another 5 minutes to cook the salmon then spoon into a bowl and decorate with some more chopped dill.



This was lovely. The dill has a distinctive flavour that goes well with salmon. The broth of the soup was really light which balances well with the potatoes. A really nice dish.
