2 Tbs. Olive oil

4 green onions, chopped

4 garlic cloves

1 quart chicken, veggie, or fish stock

1-2 Tbs. fish sauce

2 golden potatoes, sliced

1 carrot

1 parsnip

1 tsp oregano

½ tsp coriander

½ tsp cumin

salt & pepper to taste

1 pound salmon fillet w/skin for extra flavor

¼ cup loosely packed fresh chopped dill

1 large egg

Zest and juice of 1 small lemon

Sauté garlic in olive oil. Add broth, root veggies, fish sauce, salt & pepper and simmer until tender. Meanwhile whisk together egg, lemon zest, and dill. Slowly add this to the soup while whisking and cook until egg is set, just a couple of minutes. Gently add salmon to simmering soup. Lower heat and cook for a few brief minutes (approx. 3 minutes – should still be pink and rare). Remove salmon from soup and remove skin (feed to cat!). Flake salmon and return to pot with green onions. Simmer 1 minute, turn off heat, add lemon juice, cover, and let rest on burner for up to 5 minutes. Serve with a side of crusty bread.
