Fish works exceptionally well in pozole. The addition of cream to our pozole base gives the soup a velvety consistency for the salmon to bathe in. Fresh herbs to finish liven up the bowl. This recipe is an ode to couple of the things we love: bold, hearty pozole and a beautfiul, crisp piece of fish.

POZOLE CON PESCADO ASADO (POZOLE WTH ROASTED SALMON)

Ingredients

1 jar (16 fl oz) Pozole to the People red soup base
1/4 cup fresh white corn

Remove from pan and set aside.

3. Ladle soup in individual bowls. Set salmon atop. Garnish with scallion, cilantro and radish.
