Bistro Salmon Soup


    Bistro Salmon Soup

    Try with mussels or different types of fish. It’s best when eaten the same day it’s made.


    2 tsp (10 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    1 large shallot, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) anise seeds
    4 cups (1 L) low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
    2 cups (500 mL) water
    2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
    1 Yukon Gold potato, peeled and chopped
    1/2 head fennel, cored and thinly sliced (including fronds)
    2 bay leaves
    1/2 lemon
    8 oz (225 g) skinless salmon fillet

    Heat oil in Dutch oven or stockpot over medium heat. Add shallot, garlic, and anise seeds. Stir until shallots are soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in broth and water. Bring to a boil, then add carrots, potato, fennel, and bay leaves. Add 1 wide strip peel from lemon. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer to let flavours blend, 15 minutes.

    Add salmon and squeeze in juice from lemon. Cover and simmer until fish is cooked through, 5 minutes. Carefully remove salmon, and then flake into pieces. Divide among 4 bowls and ladle soup overtop. Serve with crusty bread or garlic toast.

    Serves 4.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
