Pike perch soup


Automn is here !

And what better season to enjoy a steaming bowl of soup. But not any kind of soup ! How about a taste of the fish soup but Nordic style ?

This recipe comes straight from the Tuusula region in Finland and is an absolute classic of the local gastronomy. To make it, we suggest you discover or rediscover the sander other know as pike-perch, because of its resemblance to the pike and the perch. A go-to soup for the cold autumn evenings !
