The Scandinavian fish soup is charming in summer

Various fish dishes are the best to eat in summer. The delicious soup can also made from a small fish if you put together a lot of vegetables but most importantly good broth is the soul of fish soup. If you use whole fish, it is a good idea to cook the broth from the fish kennels and backbones. Add some salt in the broth  and sift it before adding other raw materials to the soup. Also, remember that the fish matures in no time, so it should be added to the soup when the vegetables are already ripe. After adding the fish, the soup does not have to be cooked, but let it brew for a while.
