Russian Salmon Soup (Ukha)

Ukha Soup

RUSSIA Salmon has been a pillar of Russian cuisine for centuries. In lean times, all parts of the fish went into the soup, say Glenn R. Mack and Asele Surina in their book Food Culture in Russia and Central Asia. But in "more prosperous times [they] were strained out to make a clear broth".André Baranowski

Salmon has been a pillar of Russian cuisine for centuries. In lean times, all parts of the fish went into the soup, say Glenn R. Mack and Asele Surina in their book Food Culture in Russia and Central Asia (Greenwood, 2005). But in "more prosperous times they were strained out to make a clear broth". This recipe is based on one in Please to the Table by Anya von Bremzen and John Welchman (Workman, 1990).
