Old Fashioned Salmon Soup


(11 votes) 4 11

I am not fond of salmon and of fish soups. But this has been one of my favorite soups growing up. It's very simple and cooks up within 15 minutes. I like mine with a pat of butter on the soup and with buttered crackers. It's best made with red Sockeye salmon.

Keep on high heat and add salt, pepper (if desired), salmon and half & half. Stir in cornstarch slurry, until soup thickens. Stirring constantly, about 4-5 minutes.
