Cream of Salmon Soup Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Cream of Salmon Soup which belongs to the Soups recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 tablespoons (21 g) butter
  2. cup (40 g) finely minced onion
  3. cup (30 g) finely minced celery
  4. 2 cups (480 ml) heavy cream
  5. 1 can (14 ounces, or 400 g) salmon, drained
  6. teaspoon dried thyme

Cooking Instructions

In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat and add the onion and celery.

Saute the vegetables for a few minutes until the onion starts turning translucent.

Meanwhile, pour the cream into a glass 2-cup (480 ml) measure or any other microwavable container big enough for it and from which you can pour.

Place it in the microwave and heat it at 50 percent power for 3 to 4 minutes.

(This just cuts the time needed to heat the cream through? you can skip this step and simply heat the soup on the stovetop a little longer, if you like.

) Pour the cream into the saucepan and add the salmon and thyme.

Break up the salmon as you stir the soup?I found my whisk to be ideal for breaking the salmon into fine pieces.

Heat until simmering and serve.
