Salmon and vegetable soup

Jump to Recipe

This is one of the few Swedish dishes that I like to make. Original recipe calls for heavy creme but I like to use creme freche, just because it gives a lighter taste. I also added fennel to the original recipe, it gives a crunchy texture and the flavor works well with the rest of the ingredients.

This soup is done in minutes but it looks like you have spent more time on it. It looks beautiful on a plate topped with some dill and a slice of lemon on a side!
