Salmon Ginger Soup with Pak Choi

Growing up in the Philippines where salmon is not easily accessible, this Salmon soup recipe became one of my table recipes in Ireland. Aside from the health benefit you can get, it’s quick and easy to cook and prepare. Salmon is known for being rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which is the main reason why I love this fish and would like to share this home recipe with you! :-)
