DIRECTIONS

  • Chop the onions finely, place in a pan with the butter (or oil) and saute until soft. Add the wine and lemon juice, and reduce.
  • Keeping a low heat, add the flour to the buttery onions and stir in til you have a stiff onion paste. Then gradually add the milk until you have a white sauce of a consistency you want (soup will be thicker than the sauce is now, once you've blended in the salmon and onions). Add the packs of salmon and stir for 3-5 mins to warm/cook through. Blend with a stick blender until smooth. Add the parsley, season to your liking, and cook gently for another 5 minutes.
  • If you like stronger tastes, just increase the quantity of salmon and/or onions as you see fit. Can substitute leeks or shallots for onions, or any other smoked fish for the salmon as you wish.
