    I made this soup for a girl from Russia - she loved it, I used cod and salmon, and no lemon juice because I understand it's not served that way in Russia. Two other tips, I think here we've been trained to go easy with salt, but she added quite a bit of salt to hers and I think that's the way it's prepared and served in Russia, with a lot of salt, and the skin should be removed from the potatoes. I enjoyed this soup very much.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Yummy, But Don't Add the Lemon. It takes away from it, at least it seemed that way to me.  -  08 Oct 2008
