it hurt. the second stringer full was good though :). this recipe sounds good for the fish i smoked friday. let me know how they're biting up north-
HEARTY POTATO, CABBAGE AND SMOKED FISH SOUP
Start to finish: 50 minutes (25 minutes active)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large leek, white and green parts, medium chopped (about 2 cups)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
2 cups 1 percent milk
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
4 cups shredded Napa or savoy cabbage
1/2 pound smoked fish fillets (trout, whitefish, haddock or mackerel), skin discarded, fish coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Thinly sliced scallions, to garnish
Smoked paprika, to garnish
In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the leek and cook, stirring, until very soft but not colored, about 10 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Increase the heat to high, add the broth in a stream, whisking, and bring to a boil.
Add the potatoes, milk and thyme, then bring the mixture to a simmer. Cover partially and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are just tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the cabbage and simmer until tender, about 3 minutes. Add the fish and lemon juice and cook just until the fish is heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and garnish with scallions and a sprinkle of paprika.
