My Grandmother made this recipe many times and taught me to make it too.
It is a quick “go to” soup.
I have added a baked chopped potato and carrot for variety, but I still prefer my Grandmother’s original recipe.
Below is the printable recipe.
- 1 16 ounce can of pink or red salmon (picked)
- 3 cups milk scalded in saucepan
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Bring milk to a scald in a heavy saucepan
- Pick the salmon by removing all the bones
- Flake the salmon with a fork into small pieces
- Add salmon pieces to milk

- Serve immediately
- My Grandmother made this Salmon Soup regularly and we all loved it. I make it frequently as a quick soup on a cold day.
- I have made many variations of this recipe such as adding a chopped cooked potato or carrot. However, I still prefer the simplicity of the original.
