Norwegian Salmon Soup - a chowder to us.
Most Excellent Norwegian Salmon Soup (Laksesuppe)
Recipe is from a first generation Norwegian-American, found at the International Festival in Columbus, Ohio, November 3 & 4, 2007. I had a cup both days; with a piece of dark bread naturally. Easy and good. Enjoy, David C
