Creamy Salmon Soup


This simple salmon soup is made with canned salmon and a little onion.


  • 1 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 slice onion
  • 1 can (16 ounces) salmon
  • salt and pepper
  • chopped parsley, for garnish


Melt butter over medium low heat in a 2-quart saucepan; stir in flour. In a separate saucepan, scald milk with 1 slice of onion; remove onion from milk.
