Salmon Soup features lemongrass notes, sweet peas, sweet corn and is served with crunchy bacon crumbles.

We enjoy a warm and comfort soup, such as this Salmon Soup. We have a big list of soup recipes on our blog for you to look at. Among our popular soups are Instant Pot Creamy Tomato Soup, Slow Cooker Corn Chowder with Bacon and Creamy Tortellini Soup.

Salmon Soup

This Salmon Soup turned out amazing from my first try. I mean, you can’t really go wrong with flaky salmon, cream, bacon, sweet peas and corn. The flavors are so fresh, and I added some lemon grass and also lemon juice. As a result, the soup feels light and a tad citrusy. Also, 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. In addition, 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. Then 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, and the subtle lemon undertones, all work so nicely together to create  a comforting yet beautiful meal.

How to make homemade vegetable stock?

  • Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat.
  • Add the garlic, onions, celery, and carrots to it.
  • Cook until softened, for about 5-8 minutes, while stirring often.
  • Add the water, frozen vegetable scraps, bay leaves, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, for 45 minutes.

CAN YOU FREEZE Salmon SOUP?

Yes. I recommend using quart bags for this soup. First, use a cup to transfer the soup from the pot into the bag. Then, squeeze out excess air and seal the bags. The bags can nicely be stored in the freezer for up to 2-3 months. When reheating, you may need to add a bit of heavy cream, add ¼ cup at a time. Preferably heat it on the stove top if you will be adding more heavy cream.

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.

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!
