This is one of those dishes that takes about 15 minutes to prepare from beginning to end. Elegant, light flavor and beautiful color.


  1. Saute onion in olive oil until caramelized.
  2. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Add sliced salmon and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Add pepper, stir and check if you need to add salt. It will depend in the kind of broth you use.
  5. Stir in spinach. Turn of the heat. Serve.
  6. After you serve you can sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top and a home made big crouton. (slice of bread sauteed in extra virgin olive oil with a touch of garlic powder).

I added carrots, celery, fresh green beans, cilantro, and scallions to this recipe and it was delish. I also used veggie broth instead of the chicken because I don't eat meat aside from fish .. made for a delish soup!

Great simple soup - I used marinated salmon as that's what I had, 1 litre of broth, and 1/2 ts cayenne. Made for a lovely light dinner! Thank you MsPia!

Delicious and easy! Even my 6 and 3 year old ate some. I will reduce cayenne next time due to their tastes- a keeper!
