Do you ever walk around your grocery story and want a recipe to try out that delicious, umami, and practical salt cod?   Well here is one way to work salt cod into your repertoire of recipes.

Ahh, umami. To think that before 1985 there was no official word for this uniquely savory taste experience is really a tragedy for our previous generations. But, hey, at least they had the ability to taste it—just not the word to describe it. (Japanese chemist Kikunae Ikeda came up with the word at the turn of the 20th century, but it wasn’t granted validity until the mid-80s.) What a time to be alive!

Anyways, umami is basically the best thing ever. And this soup from chef and restaurateur Alex Raij of El Quinto Pino, Txikito, and La Vara is a true umami bomb.
