Russian Fish Soup with Salmon

           Ukha means fish soup in Russian. When creating the recipe for this salmon soup I took into consideration my family’s taste. While I follow the basic Russian recipe, I have made it my own with this recipe. This savory and filling soup is sure to be a hit with those that enjoy salmon.

Fish Soup Garnishing Idea from Gala’s Kitchen

Carrot Garnish for Fish Soup

We can garnish soup for kids. It is fun but time-consuming. Just instead of dicing, cut carrot fish shape. Create fish with attention, so fish won’t loose tails when you will be sauteed fish from carrot :).

Ingredients:

US

12 oz skin with scales and bones of salmon

1/3 lb onion

1/3 lb carrot

6 1/2 cup water

1 1/2 oz parsley and dill stems

1 tablespoon salt

5 allspice peppercorns

Metric

580g skin with scales and bones of salmon

100g onion

100g carrot

1.5 L water

40g parsley and dill stems

1 tablespoon salt

5 allspice peppercorns

5 black whole peppercorns

Cooking Direction:

  1. Separate skin and bones from meat for stock. I use scales also. Scales gives your stock thickness and richness, not taste.

2.  Roast carrot and onion on dry skillet, it give more flavor to our stock.

Roasting Vegetables

3. Salt water. Place salt, roasted onion, roasted carrot, steams of dill and parsley, pepper corns of black pepper and all spice in boiling water. Brink to boil and add fish skin and bones. Boil on medium-low or low  45 minutes. We can also use carcass bones, head (grills and eyes needs to be removed) and fins. If you have large carcass bones boil for 1.5 hour.

4. Our stock is ready. Let it stand for 10 min, so everything in pot lay down on a bottom. You can sieved broth or just pour gently out clear liquid. Discard everything except left of meat on bones and skin. Not much, but good addition to your soup. Don’t put meat back to stock yet.
