Fall is soup season! Most of us look forward to diving into a bowl of warm soup on a cozy autumn day. This colorful curried butternut squash + carrot soup is exactly what you need in chilly weather. Made with our Happy Fish salmon bites, it’s warm, seasonal and flavorful. You can serve the fish on top as a garnish or on the side for protein.

Note

* To cook Blue Circle Food’s Happy Fish, simply heat oil to medium heat in a skillet. Sear until the salmon is golden brown & cooked throughout, about 2 minutes on each side. Season with salt & pepper. Serve as a “crouton” to the soup or as protein on the side.
