I finally, successfully made FISH HEAD SOUP, based on Chef Rob’s video below, made with silver salmon. YUMMY! I substituted lots of cabbage and fresh dill for the sea vegetables.

I tried making it before from a 50-pound King salmon that I caught in the ’80s. I didn’t know to remove the gills, and it stunk up my roommate’s apartment! Had to throw it away.

Salmon is Omega-3 Fatty Acid rich as well as high in Vitamin D, Calcium, Magnesium and trace minerals. This truly is among the top of Alaska Native soul foods!
