Delicious "Putin's Ear"

A new sensation in London’s restaurants! Not so long ago, a new dish appeared on restaurants’ menus across London. It is an unusual and yet absolutely fabulous soup entitled “Putin’s Ear.”  Yes, Putin, as in the President of the Russian Federation! According to the legend, President’s wife Ludmila Putina has personally informed a journalist of “The Times”  in a phone interview of the actual recipe. The dish has been titled “Putin’s Ear” mainly because of the phone static.
 
The soup has rather interesting ingredients. In order to prepare such dish one will need a pike perch, a ling, potatoes, carrots, eggs, tomatoes, orange zest, celery, onions and spices. Despite the use of orange zest that adds a little bit of bitterness, the soup still tastes like traditional Russian fish-soup “uha”.
