Napa Cabbage Salmon Soup


Napa Cabbage Soup with Salmon, originally uploaded by simpleviet.

Here, instead of the chicken breast in my other cabbage soup recipe, substituted this with two salmon fillets.

Napa Cabbage Soup with Salmon

(Serves 4-6)

  • 2 fillets of salmon
  • 8 cups of water
  • 1 whole napa cabbage sliced into 1 inch rings
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 5 tbsp fish sauce
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2-3 sprig of dill, roughly chopped
  1. To a hot 6 quart stock pot, add the fillets of salmon.  Gently brown on both sides.  Once golden brown on both sides, remove and set aside.
  2. To the pot, add the chopped onion and give it a quick stir to soften the onion.  Then add to the onion, water and salt.
  3. Once the  stock mixture comes to a gentle boil, reduce to medium heat.  Add the sliced napa cabbage, fish sauce, and black pepper to the stock.
  4. Cover and simmer, about 10-15 minutes or more until the napa cabbage has softened a bit.  Break the salmon fillets into bite size pieces and return it to the soup.
  5. Few minutes before serving, add to the soup the roughly chopped dill to the broth.
