Pike is not my favourite fish. But I tend to get them quite often. So many good pike recipes are needed. Shrimp-garlic-soup is one of my favorite pike recipes. If you get a better fish than Pike, there are even more delicious things to do with it.

Incredients for two people:

  • 200-500g fresh pike (or 20 g dry, white, low fat fish)
  • 45 g dry vegetables (onion, carrot, parsnip, potato, etc)
  • dry garlic chips (1-2 teaspoonfulls)
  • 5 g  dry shrimp (from Japan or dry them yourself)
  • 25 g  one cup-a-soup with a shrimp flavour
  • 50 g carlic-herb-flavoured buttercheese (if you use natural cheese or cream, add more carlic and herbs)
  • more than one liter of water

Weight: 125 g


  1. Soak the dry vegetables, garlic and shrimps for 2-6 hours (eg. while walking). If you use dry fish and/or home-dehydrated shrimps, soak them in a different container than the vegetables (different cooking time).
  2. Clean the fish and cut it into eatable pieces. Wash it well.
  3. Boil the soaked vegetables and garlic for about 5 min.
  4. Add the fish (and home-dehydrated shrimps). Boil until the fish is ripe. If the fish is in large pieces you can put everything in the pot at once.
  5. Add the cheese and shrimp-cup-a-soup.
  6. Enjoy your soup hot.
