Canned Salmon?

I recently was given many cans of boneless, skinless pink salmon. What are some healthy options, besides salmon cakes/patties to use it wisely?

  1. I use it in casseroles (salmon/noodle casserole) as an hors devour topping on crostini, in salads and on crackers with cheese for a light lunch.

    1. I tried a salmon souffle once, with canned salmon flaked into a very basic savoury souffle mixture. The flakes were even and small so they wouldn't sink. I thought it was wonderful for one of my first souffles, delicate and tasty. But my favorite is the pattie/burger with a spoonful of dilly mayo.

      1. Hi all,

        Drain the salmon. Break it up with a fork and mix in some thin-sliced green onions. Add a little bit of mayo. Put it on top of a plate of torn up lettuce.

        Eat and enjoy!

          Wasabi! Great idea, thanks...why didn't I think of that?

            I do this, but I love to add a touch of curry to it. So great to dip veggies into it.

              Curry, excellent idea. Maybe even garam masala.....now my wheels are turning......

          2. Whatever you do (or did) with canned tuna you can do with canned salmon.

            Me, personally, I like to drain, scoop it onto a nice potato roll, slather with copious amounts of mustard and wasabi paste, top with some grilled or caramelized onions, and go to town ...
