This recipe could be made with canned or Baked/cooked Salmon. It is a very nice as appitiser:
Salmon, pink or red, canned (or cooked) 1-2 cans
Green peas 1-2 cans
Beets 1-2 cans
Hard boiled eggs 3-4
Mayo 1 cup or so.
Little bit of water and or lemon juice to dissolve the mayo.
Salt (I do not use pepper, but it is up to you) to taste
A tip. It works the best when you have the same amount of each ingredient and double amount of salmon (separately)
- boil potato with skin on. Peel them after they cool off.
- peel and boil carrots
- hard boiled eggs.
- canned beets (or you can boil one yourself. I don't like to do it because it takes too long), but don't use the pickled kind, they have too much vinegar in them.
All of the above can be cooked day in advance and diced or even grated on the big hole grater.
optional: you can use any vegetables you like i.e. onion or green onion, corn, pickles or cucumbers, some people even put apples.
-Pink or red salmon - 1 can
(Red tastes better but is more expensive, so I usually get one of each and mix it together). Fish comes with some bones. Make sure to discard them. Or you can simply bake filet of salmon for about 15 minutes and use then instead of canned stuff.
Mix it well with a fork. I’m a lazy person J and do not like to chew, so I try to mush all my food. After that, set the spread in the middle of the serving plate and pour the mayonnaise mixture over it. Make sure to cover fish completely, it looks better when served.
-mayonnaise should be dissolved (a little bit) with water and/or lemon juice. Do not add too much juice so as not to overpower the taste of the vegetables and fish. Mayo should be liquid enough to spread over salmon but not too liquid so it runs off.
Put all the prepared veggies in a scoop around the fish. Make it look pretty by putting them in order and somewhat color coordinated.
Serve like that. It looks very pretty. After everybody stop commenting how beautiful the dish is season and mix it well all together.
Looks beautiful before it was mixed and tastes good after it is mixed, though it doesn’t look that good anymore.
You are what you eat.
