If you cooked salmon baked in spinach and bacon according to our recipe for a festive table on Christmas or New Year’s, or you simply baked a whole large salmon, you definitely have a lot of fish left. Great if there are even a few pieces left. Ideal if there are 400 grams of salmon left. It will make excellent fish borsch — borsch with salmon and bacon.

Why is salmon good for borsch? Because it contains a lot of useful fat and almost no fish smell. If there is any smoked bacon on the fish, do not remove it. It will be useful for us too. The bacon will give the borsch a good flavor. And even more, conceals the possible smell of fish.
