  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup or about 50 grams) unsalted butter
  • 1 leek, sliced (white and light green parts only)
  • 5 cups (1,25l) fish stock (can be substituted with water)
  • 1 lb (450g) potatoes, cubed
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 1 lb (450g) salmon fillet, de-boned, de-skinned and cut into small chunks
  • 1 cup (250ml) heavy cream
  • 1 cup (10g) fresh dill for garnish, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Melt the butter in a pot. Add the sliced leek and saute until translucent, about 7 minutes.

  2. Add the stock, carrot and potatoes. Bring to a boil and cook for about 10
    minutes over medium heat. At this point the potatoes should be almost ready.

  3. Add the salmon chunks and the cream, and cook for about 5-7 minutes more,
    until it starts to boil.

  4. Turn off the heat and add the dill, salt and pepper. Close the lid and wait for
    another 10 minutes. Enjoy!
