++ on both ideas.

Asians always mix their used refrigerator contents into fried rice recipes, including the fried rice itself, which is yesterday's steamed rice reheated and fried in a wok, and then clean out your refrigerator to fancy it up.

Most people probably think fried rice is a recipe you cook from scratch. Not so. It's the Asian way of using leftover ingredients.

The dip sounds great! I'd cook salmon just to create the dip.

My nephew made a really good salmon casserole that I liked. I'm sure it would work with already cooked salmon. I don't know what all was in it other than salmon and potatoes, but it reminded me of scalloped potatoes, so I think you could just play with the concept and find something you like.

i wasn't initially thinking fried rice; more of a biryani with basmati, but fried sound great as well. especially with bits of frizzled salmon skin! yum.

I made some "California Roll" wraps with smoked salmon for my last picnic.
I will do again with leftover baked salmon and leftover quinoa for for the rice. A little carrot,avacado,cucumber and sesame seeds and I am there. I also made a sauce with soy,splenda,mayo and srihacha that put inside.

The other ideas are great too. The salmon and hashbrown chowder sounds interesting. Got a recipe?

That might make a great breakfast dish. Salmon,o'brien potatoes and maybe some green chili's with egg and cheese.

Better than what I was thinking!

I am with Greg on the last one! DAMN! That sounds good. I would cook the salmon just to do that. Champagne and a mini caviar cheesecake to go with. Probably just ate two days worth of calories right there!
