    ccferne's Note:

    George Leonard Herter, author of the legendary 'Bull Cookbook,' attributes this recipe to King Oscar II of Norway and Sweden (1829-1907) and states that it was brought to Minnesota by Scandinavian immigrants. He also claims that it is "far better in taste than Bouillabaisse Marseillaise." I will not comment on George's culinary judgments or his historical work. I have corrected a couple of obvious errors in his recipe, but I would not dream of leaving out the surprise ingredient that is supposed to be added at serving time. Whether King Oscar thought of it or not, it's a nice touch.

      I was totally unsure about the almond extract, but added it as I was following the recipe to the letter. Different, but good! The next time I make this, I may reduce the almond extract to a quarter teaspoon. It's nice to have a non-chowder recipe for canned salmon in a soup!

      This was one of the best soups I've ever made, and we eat a lot of soup. I used 4 cups of beef broth for the liquid and 14.5 ounces of diced tomatoes with green chilis and 14.5 ounces of plain diced tomatoes. Gave it plenty of spice,but not overly hot. This eill become a staple in my recipe box I'm sure. Thanks for a great recipe.
