Excellent soup! I made some changes, however. Since I had 3 salmon steaks that I had thawed out and refroze, I chose to thaw them again use them in soup for fear the texture or taste may have altered to much to grill them. So I think I about tripled the salmon, I doubled everything else except: 1) the cream cheese - just used one package 2) the rice, which I did not use. I used two diced red potatoes instead, and (3) the water ; I used none. I also diced the carrots instead of using shoe-string ones. And I added a sprinkling of Trader Joe's 21 Salute Seasoning. (Kind of like Mrs. Dash without salt.) This soup is good enough for company and I will definitely make it again. Three cheers to yogiclarebear for a fine recipe.
This was very good! It took only 4 hours for the vegetables to cook. The only change I made was to use only 1 tsp. of dill in this (I used dried; if you use fresh, 1 tb may be a good amount). I left out the salt, because my broth was salty enough on its own. Thanks for posting; this was a nice use for canned salmon.
