So I'm sure you're familiar with Carolyn Ketchum – the author behind the beautiful blog All Day I Dream About Food. I've already tried recipes from three of her books (check out Low Carb Donut Bites with Apple and Cinnamon, Low Carb Quick Bread and Slow Cooker Low Carb Mint Chocolate Cake)! So when I was asked to review her latest book, Keto Soups & Stews, I couldn't wait to see what winter warmers there would be for me to try!
There are so many fantastic recipes in this book – including some useful information about different kinds of broth and stock! One of the recipes that really stood out for me was the Finnish Salmon Soup. I loved the look of the creamy base with flakey salmon and fresh dill – but also because it included daikon radish which I'd never cooked with before.
One daikon radish (approx 350g) contains only 6.3g net carbs, plus it's an amazing source of Vitamin C and potassium! I definitely had to try it.
Update: I have now made low carb daikon fries – try them!
In the book, Carolyn gives great instructions for making your own salmon broth, but I confess that I was feeling lazy and bought some good quality Seafood Stock instead. I also used skinless boneless salmon fillets, which made preparation very quick and easy.
So here's my short-cut version – and although I'm sure it didn't taste quite as good as Carolyn's version – it was still really good!
How to Make Low Carb Salmon Soup
Melt some butter in a large saucepan and sauté some chopped green onions for a few minutes. Add some white wine and cook over a medium-high heat until the liquid has reduced by about half.
Add the chopped daikon and the seafood or fish stock or broth. Cook until the radish is tender, then add the chopped salmon, heavy cream, and chopped fresh dill. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as necessary – amounts will vary depending on the stock that you used!
Serve immediately, with a little extra dill for garnish.
