What an awesome soup! Did use cod loins, added a wee bit of heat and added a large bay leaf to the simmering milk/fish, other than that, made as directed. The addition of the sour cream is perfect. DH mentioned several times how delicious this soup is. This recipe is going into my Favvy File. Thank you for sharing this keeper. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

I didn't realize I needed salt cod, but went on to make the recipe poaching cod fish in the milk and of course adding salt, going on from there. It may not be a salt cod soup but it made for one delicious Potato, Leek and Cod Soup! Enjoyed! Will definitely make again.
