Can you guys believe that I don’t have any recipes featuring sweet peas on my blog? I mean, my blog name is Peas and Peonies, but not a single pea recipe. I had to shake my head in disbelief and fix this problem asap, and I fixed it deliciously by making a creamy salmon soup with sweet peas and also sweet corn.

I mean, you can’t really go wrong with flaky salmon, cream, bacon, sweet peas and corn. The flavors are so fresh, I added some lemon grass and also lemon juice so the soup feels light and a tad citrusy.

I want to mention that this creamy salmon soup it’s not labor intensive, it involves a few steps to follow, but nothing crazy, so you can totally go ahead and make this on a weeknight. This is also a great way to use any leftover roasted salmon. I only used one cup of cream, to make it on the healthier side, and I added potatoes, which I blended after they were fully cooked. This is a great trick to make a very creamy and dense soup while still keeping it healthy.

The sweet peas and corn add such a nice flavor, and their sweet and summery taste brighten up the soup. They add a nice pop of color and some fun texture. The creamy salmon soup is topped with crumbled bacon for a savory, salty finish.

The flaky roasted salmon, the creamy broth, the subtle lemon undertones all work so nicely together to create  a comforting yet beautiful meal.

  13. You have made one of my favorite soup combinations. looks great!

  14. I love peas!! My mom never cooked them growing up, so she was super surprised when I confessed my love for peas in my 20s.

  15. Looks yammy! But I hate when someone uses the road healthy. This is not healthy be aware of combination. Fish + bacon+ potatoes is a bomb in your stomach.For God sake

    • Hi Tiana, bacon is just for garnish is not used in the soup otherwise, so it can totally be skipped, fish is very healthy and recommended in a healthy diet, salmon has many, many health benefits, potatoes are not bad for you, people are scared of white potatoes and many studies proved their benefits if not fried in a tone of oil 🙂 I used here 6 medium potatoes only, the soup has bell peppers, sweet peas, salmon, onions and corn, all healthy ingredients and its made with olive oil, vegetable broth and some light cream. Obviously not the healthiest recipe in the world, but definitely on the healthy side of the spectrum, without any processed ingredients, with healthy protein, with veggies and no processed fats. I recommend that you try it and see for yourself. Many thanks for stopping by and actually leaving a comment. I appreciate all the feedback, I learn from my readers and value their opinion! I see you are from Moldova: bine ai venit si merci mult pentru opinie, un weekend cat mai placut!

  16. The soup looks so inviting and perfect for the coming winter season…Delicious!
