Omega-3 Sandwich

ChiliDude May 12, 2005 03:06 PM

I like to play with my food. I made a fish salad to be spread on bread to make a sandwich.

The ingredients included a small can of albacore tuna, a small can of pink wild salmon, a can of anchovies, a small onion diced, some mustard powder, a little cajun seasoning, one diced hard cooked egg and just enough mayonnaise to make the stuff spreadable. All the fish were drained of their respective liquids.

I never put these ingredients together before, but I will again. The ingredients have been on a shelf for a little while just waiting to be used. The spread tasted great on rye bread with caraway seeds.

    You sounds as crazy as me! I just has my cholesterl checked, and after years of being A-OK, it is just average. My girl and I were talking about eating more seafood last night, so maybe I'll try your Omegacornicopia.

      What a brilliant take on a old standby.

      I'll try your version next time.

      Thanks for sharing this!

          that's quite a sandwich! i'm fond of sardines (as do mar brand in olive oil) with a little lemon & dilled mayo on rye myself. beats the pants off the norwegian cherry flavored cod liver oil my dad gave me as a child!

            I like sardines mixed in with tuna as well, but did not have any in the house at the time that I got this crazy idea. The strange thing is that I'm just getting over a childhood allergy to fish after more than 50 years.

              Are you craving fish? Just curious.

                It's not so much a craving as trying to expand my gustatory repertoire and reduce my intake of foods high in cholesterol. I am a devout carnivore.

                Sardines are evidently also a good source of vitamin D which they say we are becoming deficient in what with sumblock and all plus they are high in calcium as well as Omega 3's. I have heard that a lot of allergies disappear in time but of course you continue to avoid something if you think it will make you sick. What made you try fish again?

                  High cholesterol! A battle that I've been fighting for more than 32 years. Medication alone didn't reduce it.

                  One has to watch out when one has food allergies. I can eat other seafood, the kind with legs or shells. However, I had a violent reaction to calamari to which I'm not allergic. I must have reacted to what the squid had eaten.

              If you want even more Omega 3's, instead of using mayo, try using Flax Seed Oil (the kind in the refrigerated section of your vitamin store) instead.
