what to do with ground salmon (other than patties)

I have some ground salmon to use up, in the past I have done burgers or salmon cakes. I am looking for something different. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  1. Toss it in salads or incorporate it into risotto or pasta, scrambled eggs or omelets, and even fried rice.

    1. Great for empanadas, sauteed with a little minced onion and red pepper flakes.

        I am not much a dough maker, but a salmon taco might work?

          You can cheat on the dough. Use small low-carb flour tortillas, cut out 4-5 inch circles with a glass or can, add your salmon filling, fold and use an egg wash to help crimp them and then brush on the wash and bake about 15-20 minutes on a cookie sheet.

      2. Boring reply here, but salmon works very well as a replacement for tuna in tuna salad sandwiches......

        1. How about a pasta bake with lemon, garlic and dill.

          1. I've used ground salmon as the meat in potstickers. A salmon shepherd's pie could also be interesting if you tweak the seasonings and you have enough salmon to pull it off.
