Make and share this Bergens Fiskesuppe (Bergen Fish Soup) recipe from Food.com.
- 6 cups fish stock (Norwegian Fish Stock or your favorite)
- 1⁄2 cup carrot, peeled and finely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup parsnip, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 lb halibut, boneless and in one piece (or cod or haddock)
- 1⁄2 cup leek, finely sliced (white part)
- 2 egg yolks
- salt & pepper, to taste
- 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 6 tablespoons sour cream (optional)
- In a large stockpot, combine stock, carrots, parsnips and fish. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. As soon as the soup reaches the boil, lower the heat and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes.
- Add the leeks and simmer 2 or 3 minutes longer. Remove from heat, lift out the fish with a slotted spoon and set aside on a platter.
- In a small bowl, beat egg yolks with a wire whisk; then beat in about 1/2 cup of hot soup, 1 tablespoon at a time. Pour this back into the soup in a thin stream, beating continuously with a wire whisk.
- With a fork, separate the fish into flakes and add it to the soup. Season with salt and pepper and reheat, but do not let the soup boil.
- To serve, ladle the soup into individual bowls and spinkle with chopped parsley. If desired, garnish each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream.
