  3. Combine the reduced stock and wine mixture with cream and bring to a bowl. Add potatoes and cook until just tender.
  4. Add the mushroom mixture and salmon to the cream and potatoes.
  5. Simmer for 5 minutes or until salmon is almost cooked through.

  7. Just before serving, add chopped dill. Enjoy!

This is a lovely rich, flavorful "stew" that is really delicious. The consistency is more of a "stoup", sort of halfway between soup and stew. I made this exactly as posted, except I did not peel my potatoes. I wasn't sure what to do with the cooked bacon, so I diced it and added it to the stew before serving. I didn't need to add much salt, since the bacon gave it enough salt. Thanks for sharing this unique recipe. Made by a fellow Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
