Finnish Salmon Soup (Lohikeitto)

Finnish Salmon Soup, or Lohikeitto, is a delicious soup recipe made with potatoes, salmon, and cream. The prep is simple, and it's made in one pot.

Finnish Salmon Soup (Lohikeitto)
I knew this soup would be delicious, as I had the chance to eat many similar salmon soups in Finland a couple of years ago, but what took me by surprise was that our 2-year-old son Adam loved it so much. This quickly became his all-time favorite dish, and he even learned the word “fish” while eating it. This Finnish Salmon Soup, or Lohikeitto, is made with delicious veggies like potatoes, leek, carrots, and a gorgeous fresh salmon fillet. Such a treat!
