I have been making this recipe for more years than I can remember. It is one of my husbands favorites. I have even served it at a sit down dinner party. The funny thing when you tell people the name Poached Salmon Soup, their faces ripple through their thoughts trying to decide if it sounds delicious or gross. Then when I tell them there is spinach in it, the look settles into “its gross”.
Of course they try it, but usually because they are afraid to hurt my feelings and in my head I start to hear the lyrics from Rappers Delight
“have you ever went over a friends house to eat and the food just aint no good,
said a hip hop the hippie the hippie
to the hip hip hop, a you dont stop
the rock it to the bang bang boogie say up jumped the boogie
to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat ”
Of course as the song is playing in my head I start jerkin’ and jivin’ while they are trying to decide. Then they are worried and a little afraid, since there is no music playing, only in my head, so they eat it out of obligation and fear… oh well, its a good song you get me? Right?
So they try the soup and then you know they love it, or I wouldn’t be sharing it here. So I will stop rambling! Try the soup already.
Really truly this is a super healthy and ultra delicious dish.

During the day you can find me in my garden or kitchen, and most likely my camera won’t be far. When I am not at home I like to head to the gym, or stretch out at hot yoga. I didn’t really start cooking and baking until I got married and I needed to feed my family!
