Made with frozen salmon filets for convenience. However, you would never know it! This is a delicious soup with great creamy flavor. It has been one of our favorites for winter, and hope it will become yours, too! Bring out the crusty bread and some of my Blue Ribbon Butter, and Enjoy! Photo is my own, recipe by trappers creek.
