Commander-style ukha soup is a rare dish, both in terms of its taste and its means of preparation. Before trying it, you have to take the long journey to the Commander Islands, a beautiful archipelago in the midst of the endless expanses of the Pacific Ocean. Only here can you catch a fish that has just moved from the salty ocean waters into the crystal clean, fresh water of a river. Only here do the herbs and plants grow that the locals add into the ukha’s stock. And it is only this mysterious archipelago that is inhabited by people who know the secret of how to prepare a perfect commander-style ukha soup.
