In one of our many trips to Mathallen in Oslo we came across this new brand of Danish products called Nordisk Køkken. We immediately fell in love with many of the oils and condiments they were selling. However, we also had to try their "kartoffel" soup, or potato soup. We usually like to make stuff like that from scratch, but this looked very tempting and the brand seemed to be very focused on quality ingredients. It is all organic and natural without gluten, preservatives or artificial additives.
Since we wouldn't be making the soup ourselves we decided to pimp it! With lobster!
"Kartoffel" soup by Nordisk Køkken
1 big lobster
1 glass of white wine
2 spring onions
Salt & pepper
This is how you pinch it down
Separate the lobster meat from the shell. Remember that there is meat everywhere in the lobster, even the small legs. Considering the price of a lobster it is worth putting some work in to getting it all out. Set the meat aside. Cut or break the shell into smaller pieces. Fry the shell in a pan with some oil for a few minutes. Then add 1 glass of white wine and let it simmer in the pan and reduce to about 1/3.
Meanwhile; heat the potato soup in another pot, and chop some spring onion.
Once the broth is ready, strain it and add it to the soup. Taste with a squeeze or two of lemon, pepper and a pinch of salt (get it?).
Distribute the lobster meat in each plate equally, pour soup over and decorate with spring onions.
Drink an awesome wine to this dish! Like this Bouchat "Fin de Presse" orange wine that we got from Rødder & Vin in Copenhagen.
