Leftover Salmon ideas please

We have been eating Salmon a couple of times a week lately. I could use some fresh ideas on what to use already cooked or leftover salmon in. I have been cooking it in the oven with simple seasonings instead of grilling it.

I already have enough pasta ideas and fish tacos are covered. Fish patties are also my list. A pizza idea would be welcomed.

What ideas can you come up with.

Same as with tuna, mix the salmon with mayonnaise, relish, maybe a bit of horseradish, squeeze of lemon juice, mix it up good and serve it on a sandwich. In fact it makes much better sandwiches than tuna IMO.

Crumble it up and add it to a pasta salad or make it part of a hot pasta dish.

If I were going to do a salmon pizza......I think I would start with a creamy dill sauce, add some capers, fresh grape or cherry tomato halves and rings of red onion and small chunks of the salmon. I'm not sure what I would do about cheese, some folks don't think cheese goes well with fish. But maybe some feta....or if the thought of cheese and fish doesn't bother you, then traditional pizza cheese. Whatcha think?

IMO fish and cheese go together well except for people who don't like one or the other.

We eat a lot of salmon, too. A few ideas:

  • Fried salmon cakes
  • Salmon hash
  • Salmon and noodles tossed in Alfredo sauce and baked
  • Salmon and asparagus over a toasted English muffin w/ Hollandaise

That sure sounds good! You should be running a B&B. You'd get a brisk business from DC members alone!

that's a tricky subject. i agree that the "rule" about cheese and fish not being complimentary is ridiculous. there are certainly a number of exceptions that shoot down the rule.

but it is a difficult pairing.

as far as cooked salmon goes, salmon cakes or burgers comes to mind. the difference is how you serve them.

salmon with diced veggies (multicolour peppers, onions ory scallions, squash or eggplant, fennel, tomaroes, etc.) mixed into rice is nice.

how about a salmon dip (blend salmon with cream cheese or sour cream) served with pita wedges?

salmon chunks in a light onion broth, japanese style, is also good
