Create Fabulous Recipes With Leftovers

Ever wonder what to do with leftovers? Get creative, and pretend your on "Chopped". The cooking showthat has professional chefs, and home cooks, creating dishes from secret ingredients they don't know about until the the challenge begins. After each round someone is chopped, and sent home if their food isn't worthy. After the dessert round, the last contestant remaining is the winner.

Two nights ago I made 4 pieces of salmon, baked in the oven with a pineapple soya glaze. It was fantastic, but i still had leftovers. What do I do? How about turning the salmon fillets into fish cakes with a coconut cornmeal crust, and a sweet chili Thai aoli.

      that is a clever way to use up all those left over food.

      My mother in law would discard them most of the time.

      I would try to mix them with fried rice.

      We don't eat salmon often but this is a great recipe
