The first time I heard about Lohikeitto I was at home watching the Food network. It was a special episode about the traditional food and cuisine of Finland. As soon as I heard about Lohikeitto, this amazing salmon soup I decided I wanted to make my own recipe with a homemade lobster fumet. Jean-Félix was not super excited about the idea so I waited until I had a guest over to try it. It was amazing … and believe me or not, it became one of Jean-Félix’s favourites. He always asks for Lohikeitto now. HA-HA-HA It’s so comforting. This soup makes you feel warm and happy. In Finland they will serve the Lohikeitto with rye bread but I much more prefer with a big loaf of bread.
Let’s talk about this wonderful sauce! What to say?? It’s a lifesaver! A real one! We love it so much that I use it for a lot of recipes. This marinara sauce provides me with so many options. Pasta and pizza are just sublimed when I use it. Oui, oui, I always use this sauce when I need tomato pizza sauce. It’s AMAZING!
