Salmon Noodle Soup

This noodle soup is almost identical to my Chicken Shells Soup.  The only different is salmon was used and I added red bell peppers.  This is the first time I used salmon in soup and I was impressed at how well it hold it's shape and tastes really good.  Now I have new way of cooking salmon as this gives me an idea of creating other soupy salmon dishes.

I really loved these two types of noodle soup, of course you can use other kind of dried pasta that you have at home.  You can easily cook a big pot and enjoy it for days.  Give it a try and feedback to me ya!

I'm sharing this noodle with Presto Pasta Nights, an event created by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast This week host is Daphne from More Than Words! Check out the delicious round up on April, 16th!


Olive oil
1/2 white/yellow onion, chopped
1 bay leaf
8 grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/4 red bell pepper, thinly sliced or chopped
1 salmon fillet,cut into cubes, marinate with white wine and white pepper
1/2 cup shells 
1/2 cup frozen mixed vegetable
Dash of dried thyme
Dash of dried oregano
Dash of dried parsley
Salt to taste
Black Pepper
Chicken or vegetable stock


1.  In a medium size saucepan, add in some olive oil, about 1-2 Tbsp.  Add in onion and stir-fry until fragrant.  Add in bay leaf, stir-well.  Add in grape tomatoes and red bell pepper and stir-well.

2.  Add in frozen mixed vegetable and stir well.  Add a little salt to season the ingredients.  Add in chicken or vegetable stock, quite a lot because it is a soup and you want to cook the shell pasta too.

3.  Add in the shell pasta, stir and let it simmer until the pasta is cooked.  When cooked, add in the cubed salmon, carefully stir into the soup, cover and let the salmon cooked, just few minutes.  Uncover and season to taste with dried herbs and black pepper.

4.  Take out the bay leaf before serving.

Classic soup dish! and comfort too- esp with the shells pasta. Love the addition of salmon actually. I tend to use chicken alot..and salmon for sandwiches/pasta but rarely a soup dish.

All along I have used instant miso (with some radish and carrots) to make salmon soup. Now I learnt a new western style of cooking salmon soup :)
