 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
  213       g            Canned red Alaska salmon
  100       g            Whole prawns
  600       ml           Vegetable stock
    1       sm           Onion
                         -- un-peeled and quartered
    1                    Bay leaf
    2                    Egg whites
    8                    Thin slices of carrot
                         -- blanched
                         -- and cut into flowers
    2       tb           Sherry, optional
   Drain the juice from the can of salmon into a
   saucepan. Break the fish into flakes putting the bones
   and skin into the saucepan with the juice but setting
   the flakes to one side.
   Peel the prawns. Put the heads and shells into the
   saucepan and set the prawns to one side with the
   salmon flakes. Add the vegetable stock, onion and bay
   leaf to the saucepan. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat,
   cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Remove the consommé
   from the heat and strain it into a jug through a sieve
   which has been lined with damp muslin. Wash out the
   pan and return the consomme to the saucepan, once
   again passing it through a sieve, lined with clean,
   damp piece of muslin.
   Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
   Place the consomme over moderate heat and bring to the
   boil. Whisking gently, add the egg whites, a spoon at
   a time into the stock. When the mixture boils, simmer
   gently for 10 minutes, without breaking the crust of
   egg white which will form over the top.
   Allow to stand for 5 minutes before straining it for a
   final time through a sieve lined with dampened muslin.
   Re- heat the soup before serving in bowls along with
   the flakes of salmon, shelled prawns, carrot flowers
   and sherry, if used.
