Salmon Pasta

I made this about a week ago and was pretty happy.
I used Costco salmon patties which are nothing but chopped salmon and a little spice formed into patties.
But fresh salmon would be better even.


1/2lb cooked spaghetti
3/4lb grilled salmon
1 egg yolk
1tbs butter
3-4 tbs milk
1 tbs capers
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
2 tsp minced shallot
1/2 tsp grated lemon peel
cracked black pepper

I put everything in a bowl,stir, and then add the hot pasta and toss.

I love to do stuff like this. A week or so ago I stretched one salmon fillet to feed three people. didn't use any dairy, but sauteed some spinach with the shallots and sauced up the salmon and spinach with about 1/2 cup of dry white wine.

I always add the hot, drained pasta to the sauce pan and toss everything together there.

A big hit!

If you like the patties, try the canned salmon in recipes like this.

Living in Montana, I don't always have fresh salmon available so I buy the canned. Yummy in all kinds of ways, usually a salmon salad for topping buttery crackers.

I have only had canned salmon once.It was made into patties with saltine crackers.It was in the late 1980's so I don't even remember if I liked it.

What else do you do with it?

When I was growing up, we often had a can of salmon for Sunday night supper, with hard boiled eggs, sliced rye bread, tomatoes (if in season) and lettuce. Condiments on the table, too. We could make a sandwich, or a salad of sorts on our plates. It was the red Alaska Sockeye variety. I still enjoy that kind of meal.

You can also use the canned salmon for salmon mousse. Very successfully, I might add.

Anything you would do with canned tuna you can do with canned salmon. I like it as a green salad topper to make it an entree. I usually mix it with capers and lemon.
