over-cooked salmon filet -- any ideas?

Well, I was just so proud of myself for whipping out the parchment paper and trying a new recipe for salmon. But apparently I did something wrong because it was completely overcooked! I hate to pitch a whole salmon filet, but I definitely can't eat this tough fish for dinner... I like my salmon practically sushi-grade. I slathered it in chipotle aioli, but you can't even tell... oh well.

Any clever ideas for ways to use this fish?

  1. Salmon cakes? Or quiche perhaps?

    Heck, go with the "Hair of the dog" technique and make salmon jerky.

      I am in on the salmon cakes. Love them! I try to keep some in the freezer for those nights that I am not cooking for my DH. I like them far more than he does.

        +1. Just did that with some overcooked chicken breast.

      2. Mexican-style spread or dip? Cream cheese, lime juice, cilantro, fine chopped red and/or green onion, dab of garlic and cumin--with tortilla chips or spread on a tortilla and warmed....

        1. Mix in a little bit of liquid smoke, maybe some dill, then mix the whole of it into cream cheese and make lox spread!
