Salmon soup with vegetables

Ok, how is it possible to eat something and to lose weight?
Salmon is supposed to be the fish which makes this miracle happen. But even if you don't think about calories all the time, salmon should be mentioned. It is a healthy food. Salmon contains a lot of omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for the health and help prevent against heart disease, circulatory diseases and many other types of illnesses.
So, enough good reasons to serve it at least once weekly. 
Violeta and I are salmonholics (I know there is no such word, but how can you describe the constant craving for salmon in every possible variation?).
This soup is a very simple dish, easy to prepare and not sophisticated. But we love to eat it on Saturday or Sunday mornings, it gives us a comforting and flavorful beginning of the day. 

  • 800 g fresh salmon (5 steaks)
  • 1 big onion
  • 1 big carrot
  • 1 medium potato
  • 2 green peppers
  • 250 g sour cream
  • 1 halfed Tomato 
  • 5 cups vegetable broth
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper
Half the peppers and chop them after removing the seeds. Dice the potato. Chop the onion; peel and grate the carrot coarse. Put the vegetables in a pan with hot olive oil and bring to a simmer for 15 minutes until soft.  Add the salmon and the sour cream. Let the fish simmer with the vegetables for 5 minutes, add the broth and the tomato and boil for additional 10 minutes on medium heat. Serve hot.
