  • 2 medium avocado, roughly chopped
  • 1.5 litres vegetable or chicken stock, preferably home-made
  • 2 tbsp low-fat plain yogurt

3. Remove the salmon from the liquid. Peel off the skin and cut each fillet into two or three pieces.

4. Pour the avocado mixture into shallow soup plates. Add a piece or two of salmon and top with some salmon eggs, if using.
