Salmon Fish Soup

I went to the supermarket today.  As I walked pass the seafood section, a lady who works there asked me if I wanted any salmon bones.  I know her quite well as I always go there and check on their seafood.  Since I never bought salmon bones before, I didn’t know what I should use them for.    The lady suggested that I could use them to make soup.  Well, I thought that was a good idea.  So I took the fish bones home and came up with a recipe immediately.   Remember one time my sister-in-law told me that she always uses V8 original juice to make spaghetti sauce.  So I tried to use V8 as one of the ingredients to make my soup.

We had the soup at dinnertime.  It was delicious.  

2 lbs salmon fish bones
2 cups carrots - chopped
1 onion – chopped
6 garlice cloves – chopped
3 green onions – cut into 3 sections
3 cups V8 original cocktail
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup water
5 basil leaves
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 potato
Pinch parsley or green onions

Salmon fish bones

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat. 
  2. Add garlic, onion and green onions and sauté for about one minute. 
  3. Add salmon bones and continue to sauté.
  4. Add chicken broth, V8 original vegetable cocktail, water, basil and bay leaves and bring to boil. (Leave potato for later use)
  5. Then turn to minimum heat and simmer for 1 hour.
  6. Drain the fish soup by using a strainer.  Transfer to another pot. 
  7. Add potato into the soup and simmer for half an hour.
  8. Add salt and pepper to taste.
