    1. 1
      Very finely dice the garlic and both the white and the green parts of the leek, then sauté over medium heat in the bottom of a soup pot with a pinch of salt until the leeks begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with Old Bay Seafood Seasoning.
    2. 2
      Stir in the water, the light whipping cream, the sour cream, the white wine, the saffron, the thyme, and the basil. Bring to a low boil, then add the mixed shellfish. Reduce heat to a steady simmer and cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the salmon and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Serve warm, with homemade rye rolls and a salad.

      I absolutely loved this soup, but DH hated it. (If you use sea scallops, be sure to quarter them; I only halved them, and I wonder if he ran into one that wasn't completely done. I'm not sure.) The mixture of seafoods was very tasty, as was the seasoning. I wish I'd used a slightly drier white wine. However, this was still delicious! ZWT9
