Very good! I was worried it might be a bit bland and watery, relying on stock and curry paste for flavour but the salmon really makes it. A satisfying and warming soup, but low calorie; perfect!

Really tasty soup! It's quite quick to make and nice with the salmon it. Next time, I think I'd add more veg, maybe some sugar snaps.

Can't wait to try this! Me & the hubby are big salmon fans and I love thai food. Will probably use broccoli (read in the comments that it works well) as I'm also not a fan of the mushrooms.

You've reviewed it before trying it??

Totally agree with jonesy127. Reviewing before trying is WRONG wolfiegirl. I wasted my time reading your comment

Delicious! I used broccoli instead of mushrooms and loved it! Highly recommend.

My family loved this soup. I've replaced the mushrooms with broccoli since my son doesn't eat mushrooms but the soup was lovely anyway!

Used chestnut mushrooms instead of shitake, and tinned baby corn cobs. Also added a pack of fresh udon noodles rather than flat rice noodles so the whole dish took about 10 minutes to cook and was delicious.

Replaced the mushrooms with tenderstem broccoli because i'm not a big fan of them. Also added some fish sauce to the stock and topped it all off with a generous helping of Sriracha sauce. Loved it.

Really nice, and easy recipe. I used some red pepper instead of sweetcorn. Will make again.

Oh that was a tasty dinner.... Cut recipe down for 2 people and plenty enough to go round... Very light and full of flavour.... Plus got salmon fillet from Tescos Fishmonger for £1.25; love a bargain!

Just eating this. Have been planning to do for a while as I liked the sound (and the picture!) of it. I used different type of noodles and used way too much of them so it is less soupy, but worked out great. Will do again

Lovely soup! Have made it as described but added some cabbage heart and some radishes, sliced finely, at the same time as the salmon (wanted to use them up). The added crispness was a plus.

Prawns & sugar snap peas also make a nice alternative to salmon. Adding some grated fresh ginger also works. However portion would serve 2-3!

I didn't have lime and used dried parsley instead of fresh coriander, but it was still extremely delicious
