How to Make Bergen Fish Soup (Bergens Fiskesuppe)
- 1In a large stockpot, combine stock, carrots, parsnips and fish. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. As soon as the soup reaches the boil, lower the heat and simmer
uncovered for about 10 minutes.
- 2Add the leeks and simmer 2 or 3 minutes longer. Remove from heat, lift out the fish with a slotted spoon and set aside on a platter.
- 3In a small bowl, beat egg yolks with a wire whisk; then beat in about 1/2 cup of hot soup, 1 tablespoon at a time. Pour this back into the soup in a thin stream, beating continuously with a wire whisk.
- 4With a fork, separate the fish into flakes and add it to the soup. Season with salt and pepper and reheat, but do not let the soup boil.
- 5To serve, ladle the soup into individual bowls and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Garnish each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream.
