Last year, consumers spent £78.2 million pounds on fresh soup in the UK. Instead of buying ready-made, how about making your own beautiful fresh soup? Smoked salmon has a rich and complex flavour that will enhance any soup and broth - it will taste fresher than a shop bought alternative, as it hasn't been sitting on a shelf.

Fish soup is both tasty and healthy, and good for a pescatarian and paleo diet, and has plenty of vitamins and minerals. It has well-documented health benefits, as it is rich in essential Omega 3 fatty acids, which are crucial for brain development. There are delicious soup recipes available that will really elevate your dinner time to the next level featuring cold smoked organic salmon.

Just because we don’t eat the bones, that doesn’t mean that we can’t make a delicious broth with them. In the UK, 18 millions tonnes of food are thrown away every year. That's 1/3 of what is produced. Making soup encourages using leftovers or use them to their full potentials, like the (fish) bones. There are some great benefits of eating a bone broth, too. It contains all the vitamins and minerals from the fish bones, and can be an essential source of calcium.

A fish bone broth is perfect paired with a simple ravioli, or just eaten on its own with fresh sourdough bread. And will make an elegant starter for any dinner party. Your guests will be really impressed with the depth of flavour, and the taste of summer.
