Norwegian Fish Soup

Hello! Welcome to Beyond Soy!

Last year we traveled to Norway and enjoyed some extremely delicious fish soup. We liked it so much that we recreated the recipe after we got back home. This is a great meal for a cold, rainy day. Give it a try; it might surprise you!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 quart vegetable stock (we use Trader Joe's vegetable stock)
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 2 (small) potatoes
  • 1 bunch Green onions (if desired)
  • ~1 lb assorted fish (we most frequently use tilapia, whiting, or haddock)
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

What to do:

  1. Cook the fish separately (we often steam it) and cut into 1 inch chunks
  2. Add vegetables to vegetable stock and simmer for 10 minutes (add water to increase the volume of soup as necessary)
  3. Add fish chunks and simmer for 3 minutes
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour into the cream then add it to the soup
  5. Bring soup to a boil
  6. Add sugar and vinegar gradually
  7. Remove from heat
  8. Season with salt and pepper
  9. Serve with crusty bread to dunk in the soup
