Suggestions for Leftover Salmon Filet?

We cedar-plank grilled a large filet in a light maple-soy marinade, and have at least a pound left over. Any ideas? TIA!

      Great suggestion from the critter. My first thought was salmon quenelles or croquettes or cakes...whatever. Another option would be to mix the feesh into cream cheese along w/ some chopped red onion or shallot for a bagel shmear. Or add some sour cream to the above for a dip or spread. adam

    2. Salmon fried rice (if you don't go with Jfood's croquettes, which would be shame!)...recently tried it and at first, I thought: Salmon fried rice?? Nah! -- well, it was really good!

      1. Can't go wrong with flaking it up and using it for fish salad like you would tuna. I smoke whole sides just to make smoked fish spread with it.

        1. I often make this Asian Salmon Noodle Salad with leftover salmon, it works especially well with a maple-soy marinade.

          1. french bread, cold salmon, avocado, mayo, and red onion.
            Call me when it's ready to cut.
