Moi! (as we say hi in Finland)

Many of you know that I am born and raised in Finland but ended up living in Malmö,  Sweden after 3 years in Stockholm, 2,5 years in Helsinki, 6 months in Barcelona and 6 months in New York and the rest living in my home town Vaasa, Finland. I defintiely miss some traditional Finnish dishes and we do cook them at home from time to time. This recipe is definitely one of those worth sharing. Simple and creamy salmon soup! Tastes best enjoyed with a piece of rye bread.
