Made this last night, was very yummy! Nice and simple, yet wholesomely delicious!
My boyfriend who is originally from Finland was feeling home sick and requested that i cook up some Finnish food for him and my family. Thank God i chose this recipe! My boyfriend and entire family were singing my praises when they tasted this Lohikeitto! I did however tweak it a bit as I was getting a bit nervous of its consistency. I continued to let it simmer for an additional 10 minutes before adding the salmon to reduce the liquid and added 2 beef boullion cubes which made it even tastier without really interfering with the flavor of the salmon! Thank you thank you for posting Pot Scrubber!
Mmmm! This was a lot like a simple salmon chowder, which was exactly what I was looking for! The seasoning allowed the salmon to really shine through. It makes a fair bit, though. I scaled it down for four (there's three of us, but we have hearty appetites), but even with second helpings for DH and me, we didn't come close to finishing it. I don't think it would reheat well, either. So next time I'll scale it back even further. I couldn't get fresh dill at the store, so I used dried--I think fresh would be much better. I have to say, though, that neither DH nor DS cared for it much. I've no idea why...salmon and cream: what's not to like??! But I just loved it, and while I wouldn't make it often due to the richness, I'm sure I'll make it again. Thanks so much for posting, Pot Scrubber! Made for Think Pink 2008.
Such a simple soup with minimal seasonings which allows the flavour of the salmon to shine! Since I prefer a thicker soup, I didn't add any water; in fact, I'll puree the veggies with my hand blender next time. I wish I could throw caution to the wind & use whipping cream but my dietary concerns leaned towards low fat milk - I compromised by using half & half! Since I was out of dill, I selected lemon thyme from my garden as a garnish. Thanx Pot Scrubber!
Very simple... Move over Cambell's Cream of Crap... there is a new kid in town, and that ain't crap!!!! I followed the recipe exactly as instructed. I had to resist the urge to add a variety of seasonings, but believe me no additional herbs and/or spices are required. When the intitial ingredients were added to the water, my immediate reaction was to add more water; there appeared to be an over-abundance of ingredients for the 4 cups of water. However, the recipe stipulated 4 cups of water; so, disloyal to nature, I obeyed the instructions. During the cooking process, I stirred the pot a few times and it began to resemble a chowder rather than soup. Prior to the addition of whipping cream, (I love cooking with whipping cream, it is so naughty.) I did add a further cup of water, to create soup....it was pretty thick without the additional water.... I changed nothing else... I did add optional dill, because I love dill, and buy it by the ton... The dill added a European flavour, reminiscent of cooking flavours at home when I was a child.... much appreciated, thank you, Pot Scrubber. . However, I experimented with flavours after the soup was finished. To one bowl I added a TSP of lemon juice... Y-U-M-M-Y.... To another bowl I added a sprinkle of Old Bay Seasoning..... Y-U-M-M-Y again... To a third bowl I added a splash of Balsamic Vinegar... Equally tasty. I rather think I will play with additional flavours. It is a personal preference, and can be done after the soup is finished. It is a wonderful soup, in any person's language; thank you Pot Scrubber for including this recipe.
