Lohikeitto: Traditional Finnish Salmon Soup

  • Gluten-Free
  • 45 min
  • Serves 6

Lohikeitto is a traditional Finnish salmon soup. This dish is rich in flavor and has creamy texture.

To make such a tasty treat you only need half an hour. The dish is pretty high in callories. But as an exception, you can treat yourself to this classic Finnish recipe on some holiday and surprise your family with this yumminess.



Coarsely grate the carrots and dice the onions. Saute the onions and carrots with oil until soft in a pot which you will use to make the soup.


When the onions become translucent, add the diced tomatoes to the pot and stir with a spatula.


Pour filtered water into the pot. Peel the potatoes and cut them finely. Add the potatoes to the pot, season the soup with salt.


Cook the soup for 15 minutes, then add medium-sized pieces of salmon. Stir the soup and add dried or fresh chopped herbs.


Add bay leaf and heavy cream to the soup, cook for another 10 minutes over low heat.

Treat yourself and your loved ones to this rich salmon soup! We are sure that such an incredibly tasty dish will not leave anyone indifferent.


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!

I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you
hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking
to create my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from.
appreciate it

You can definitely see your enthusiasm within the article you write.
The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who
aren’t afraid to say how they believe. At all
times follow your heart.

Hello There. I found your blog the use of msn. That is
a very well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and return to learn more of your useful information.
Thank you for the post. I’ll certainly comeback.

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and entertaining,
and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently
about. Now i’m very happy that I found this during my search for something concerning this.

I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours as of late, but I never discovered any interesting article like yours.

It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made
good content material as you did, the internet can be much
more helpful than ever before.
