This is cold-weather dining at its best. Generous pieces of fresh fish floating in a creamy broth with root vegetables make for a hearty and satisfying dinner.This recipe is from Lucinda Scala Quinn, and it appears on the Martha Stewart Living digital magazine for iPad.

This is a delicious recipe. I used leftover salmon from the night before and used thyme instead of dill. I also used half and half to lighten it up. Fantastic.

Wonderful, fast and super easy. Didn't bother with fish stock - just threw celery into the soup itself and let the vegetables cook a little longer in the water. Will definitely make again.

Easy, fast and delicious. I didn't have leeks so used green onions and instead of Yukon Gold potatoes, I used small white potatoes. I also added an additional 1/2 teaspoon salt. Key to the yumminess was using a quality fish stock, which I am lucky to be able to get at a nearby top-notch fish market. Would definitely make again.
