Lohikeitto (Nordic Creamy Salmon Soup)Lohikeitto

Nordic Creamy Salmon Soup

Heat olive oil in a large skillet; cook chopped leek over medium-low heat until softened. Add water and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add the cubed potatoes. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about twenty to thirty minutes. Add salmon pieces; simmer for about five minutes. Stir in cream (or half-and-half). In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and one tablespoon of water; mix well to dissolve cornstarch. Add mixture to soup; simmer until thickened. Add butter into soup; remove from heat. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Top with fresh parsley or dill and serve with lemon wedges if desired. Recipe makes about four servings.

Note: Lohikeitto is a common dish in Finland and Sweden (where the dish is known as Laxsoppa), as well as other Nordic countries.
