4 servings

  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 6 shallots, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 3 medium Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 6 medium carrots, diced
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 10 -ounce package sliced white mushrooms
  • 10 ounces Brussels sprouts, halved (quartered if large)
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine or fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Cook the bacon in a large saucepan over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shallots and half of the dill and cook until the shallots are soft, about 3 minutes.

  • Add the potatoes, carrots, 4 cups water and 1 teaspoon salt. Increase the heat to medium high, cover and bring to a simmer. Cook until the potatoes and carrots are almost tender, about 6 minutes. Add the mushrooms and Brussels sprouts and cook until all of the vegetables are tender, about 6 more minutes. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks, half-and-half and wine in a small bowl.

  • Reduce the heat to medium low, add the salmon and cook until opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Gently stir in the egg mixture and cook until the soup thickens slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Divide among bowls and top with the remaining dill.
