Rice vermicelli soup with salmon and ginger: a recipe somewhere between Italian and Thai: for the home team we deploy the chili, the extra virgin olive oil, potatoes, parsley and mushrooms; for the East team, here is ginger, the lime juice, vermicelli soy, coconut milk. To top it all, other fresh vegetables. Actually, I had thought about doing a salmon soup I ate in Finland, but then I 'tacked’ to contamination with Oriental cuisine. The result was very good: the soup was light and aromatic, and the preparation is very simple. It is prepared in about 15 minutes.
