Recipes: Start with a can of Salmon

Updated on September 1, 2013

I really enjoy eating Salmon, but the steaks can be pretty expensive. So I usually use canned salmon, which is quite reasonable in price. The downside is you have to take out the bones and skin but you end up saving a lot of money.

These recipes all call for canned salmon and are relatively inexpensive and quick.

The first step in all these recipes is to remove the bones and the skin and flake the fish.

Cheesy Salmon Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 cups noodles, uncooked
2 tablespoons flour
8 ounces grated cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 can salmon (16 ounces)
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Cheesy Salmon Directions

Preheat oven to 375. use cooking spray on 1 quart casserole.

In saucepan, melt butter: add flour, stirring until blended. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring until smooth and thickened.

remove bones and skin from salmon, drain and flake. In bowl, add salmon, noodles, cheese, spices. Blend then add the flour mixture and combine thoroughly.

Pour into casserole and bake for 30 minutes or until set. 4 servings

Salmon Loaf Ingredients

2 cans salmon (16 ounce cans)
1 teaspoon grated onion
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons snipped parsley
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Salmon Loaf Directions

When you drain the salmon, make sure you save the liquid.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Use cooking spray in 10 in loaf pan.

Take bones and skin out of salmon and flake the fish. Add enough milk to the reserved liquid from the salmon can to make 2 cups liquid. Add the liquid to the salmon, along with the rest of ingredients and mix.

Turn into loaf pan, bake about 1 hour. Makes 8 servings

1/2 cup rice
3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped

2 tablespoons snipped dill
8 ounces thinly sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoon salt

Salmon in Pastry Directions

First, make the pastry.

Cut butter and shortening into flour and salt until it resembles small peas. Sprinkle in water ,1 tablespoon at a time,using fork to blend. When you have worked in enough water that all the flour is moistened, form dough into a ball. Divide dough in half, shape into rounds, cover and refrigerate for about 3 hours, until firm.

Next, make the filling

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Heat 1 cup water, rice and boullion to boiling in 1 quart saucepan, stirring once. Once boiling, cover and let simmer for about 14 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff rice wit hfork.

Roll out other pastry round to about 18 x 9 inches. Place over filling on cookie sheet. Press edges together and seal with fork. Make sure you cut some holes in the top of the pastry to allow steam to escape.
