Leftover pan-grilled salmon

I have 1-1/3 pan-grilled salmon fillets left from last night, and DH suggested we crumble them up and add a can of albacore tuna for a noodle casserole.

Do you think salmon and tuna will taste good together?

Make a smaller casserole and just use the salmon or make a pasta dish with salmon and a veggie tossed in. Dress it with olive oil and garlic.

I'm with Andy, I don't think I'd combine them. Or make a bechamel with some onions in it, add the chunked salmon, peas. Serve on toast. Or mix it with onions, potatoes and make salmon cakes,

I also agree with Andy and Loprraine. You could even use the salmon after chunking it a bit, adding a dusting of dill weed, and maybe a drizzle of lemon juice, all placed on top of pumpernicle points and cover with a suitable cheese. Place under the broiler until hot and the cheese is melted.

There are a thousand ideas you could use the salmon in. And the salmon is just to good to be mixed with the canned tuna, IMHO.

I had these salmon wraps that were really tasty. Kinda of a pain to make but very creative. Mix the cooked salmon (flaked/shredded) with 1 head of chopped raddicho, bag of baby spinach, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Get some rice paper and soak in warm water to make the rice paper soft. On the rice paper, put a tsp of hosin sauce and a dab or two of chili paste. Then add 2 to 3 T of the salmon/raddichio/spinach mixture. Roll up and enjoy!

They are really yummy! I need to double check the recipe, just digging this out of my head. But I can give you specifics if you like.

That's what I thought, too. But I needed your opinions in print, to make DH believe me. I have some frozen peas and may add a can add a can of mushrooms and a small jar of pimentos as well.
I love the idea of dressing it with a vinaigrette (olive oil, garlic, herbs +lemon juice) instead of a heavier sauce.

I also love the Rice-a-Roni idea, GF, and will be sure to try that sometime.

Right now, though, my husband is set on noodles, and since he's cooking, I guess we'll have noodles.

Well heck, if he wants noodles, I'd throw throw the salmon, peas, onions, veggies, noodles et al in the bechamel, top with buttered breadcrumbs and cheese. I think I need some leftover slamon!

Probably too late, Connie, but I'd like Salmon Cakes, like these Recipes : Salmon Cakes : Food Network

He can have buttered noodles on the side?
