Cream of Salmon Soup


Guests always compliment me when they taste this rich and creamy salmon soup. For special occasions, I make puff pastry triangles for dipping into the soup, but you can serve it without them.

Puff Pastry Triangles:

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

  • 1 egg yolk, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Salmon Soup:

  • 1 ½ tablespoons butter

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 18 ounces salmon fillets, diced

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 2 ½ cups fish stock

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 ¼ cups heavy whipping cream

  • 1 pinch saffron

  • salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste

  • 3 teaspoons chopped fresh dill


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Lay puff pastry on a lightly floured surface and roll out with a rolling pin. Brush with egg yolk. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and press in firmly. Cut puff pastry first into squares, then into triangles, and place on a baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until triangles are puffed up and golden brown, about 15 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, melt butter in a pot over medium heat and cook onion until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add salmon and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and cook for 1 minute. Pour in fish stock and white wine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes.

  5. Stir cornstarch and a little bit of water into a paste. Add to soup and bring to a boil. Cook until soup thickens, about 5 minutes. Puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth. Stir in cream and saffron. Season with salt and pepper.

  6. Garnish soup with dill and serve with puff pastry triangles.
