In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add leeks and cook about five minutes until soft. Add smoked paprika and garlic, and cook another minute. Stir in broth, bay leaf, thyme, and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Add potatoes and let stew simmer, partially covered, for 15 to 20 minutes until potatoes are tender. Remove bay leaf. Spoon in sour cream and let stew simmer gently for another 2 to 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste, if necessary. Using a food processor, mix stew components together, leaving distinguishable chunks of vegetables amidst a creamy sauce. Mix in smoked salmon and serve.
