Merelyn’s White Soup

. . . That’s Slightly Green!

So here’s the story. I like to walk through the fruit and veg shop and choose a colour for my soup.  It could’ve been red (tomato, capsicum, chilli…) or green (zucchini, pea, mint…). But today it’s white. With a tinge of green. I’ve picked all my favourite ‘white’ veggies, added flavour with some sauteed leek and onion, another dimension with a rind of parmesan and a touch of richness with the best quality vegetable stock I could find, make or buy. I then pureed it in a blender so it is super smooth. And SUPER delicious.

Many of you know I have been on the growing 'don't buy Tassie salmon' bandwagon since reading Richard Flanagan's book Toxic about a year ago. It was shocking to see the state of the industry, and even more shocking that we thought we were eating something that was really good for us. This just-released video has strengthened my resolve (which I have to admit was waning as I am not sure how much impact we have all had) to continue and to spread the word.

Please share this post, or any post supporting this stand, it is such an important message - especially for those of us who used to love eating Tassie salmon.

And sadly this also applies to all the smoked salmon from Tassie including @huonsalmon which we all used to love.

Click on the link in our profile for the original @neighbours_of_fish_farming video. 🙏🏻 @joostbakker for posting the video, that's where I first saw it.

I have been buying NZ king salmon @regalsalmonnz @orakingsalmon and @alpinesalmon (Mt Cook, NZ, can buy at @harrisfarmmarkets) and exploring many other fish options. Check out @goodfishproject for an excellent guide to what we should be buying here in Aus.

We also need to rally the big buyers in Aus - @colessupermarkets @woolworths_au to stop buying farmed Tassie salmon until the industry has been cleaned up.

(btw when we were in beautiful Tassie last year, not one restaurant we went to served salmon. Doesn't that say something?)
