Drain liquid from salmon into measuring cup. Set aside to use as part of liquid. Turn salmon into bowl and flake. Add minced onion, seasonings, milk and reserved salmon liquid. Mix lightly.

Very easy to make and an ideal meal when you are busy. Perfect for on the go because you could eat this salad at room temperature or cold. You can make this salad into a sandwich with sandwich slices, hot dog buns, hamburger buns or even serve as an appetizer over crackers.


It is very versatile!

Break salmon into bits with a fork, removing skin and backbone. Sprinkle with lemon juice and combine with other ingredients. Arrange in lettuce cups and garnish with tomato wedges.

In a Dutch oven or soup kettle, combine the potatoes, vegetables, onion, celery seed and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

This is one of my favourite meal: Salmon Loaf and Scalloped potatoes. They cook at the same temp so it is just a matter of timing each. All together the meal takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes:


1/2 c. dry bread crumbs or craker crumbs
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 lb(large) can of salmon, with broth, flaked OR 2 small cans.
Dash pepper
1/2 tsp sage
2 tsp finely chopped onion or same amount dried onion flakes
1 tbsp finely chopped celery OR dried chopped parsley OR celery seed to taste.
Combine all ingredients in order given. Paked firmly into a greased loaf pan or casserole and bake at 350*F for 30-40 minutes
4 large or 6 medium potates, peeled if old, scrubbed and skin on if new.
1/2 small onion, sliced thinly into rings
Lightly grease a casserole dish, one with a lid.
Thinly slice potatoes, layering with onion rings
Sprinkle generously with flour and salt and pepper to taste
Dot with butter or marg.
Repeat this layering 3 more times, dividing onion and potato slices accordingly. Finish with flour, salt and pepper and dotted with marg.

Pouring from one side or corner of the casserole and watching the opposite side, add milk until you can see milk on the other side or corner. Cover.
Bake in preheated 350*F oven for 1 hour. Remove the lid from the casserole and bake for a further 15 minutes to brown the top and edges.
To cook salmon loaf and scalloped potatoes together, do the following:
Place potatoes in the preheated 350* oven for 35 minutes.
After that time, slide in the salmon loaf for 25 minutes.
Remove the lid from the potatoes after that time and cook both for another 15 minutes.

Just debone and get out the silvery skin and to a regular can of salmon add an egg, small onion, minced and a bit of minced celery with enough crushed saltines to bind...I would say 8 or 10. Fry carefully to a golden brown. Serve with a simple tartar sauce of mayonaise, minced onion and a little pickle relish. We usually have boiled potaotes with parsley or chive butter and a green salad. One of our favorite meals ever!!

8 average sized potatoes
1 large onion
1/4 cup of butter
1 Tbs. salt
pepper to taste
2 cans of salmon (cleaned)
1 can evaporated milk (Pet brand)
1 cup ketchup (optional)
Tabasco sauce to taste (optional)
Fat free saltines or oyster crackers

Peel and dice potatoes and onions. In 8 quart pot fill to half with water add salt, pepper, butter, potatoes and onions. Boil for about 25 minutes stirring some, turn off heat and add salmon, ketchup, Tabasco and milk last, stirring to blend. Get out your favorite bowl, add crackers and stew, eat.

~my mom lightly sauteed the salmon & chopped onion in a bit of butter before adding them to the stew pot.
~you can omit the ketchup & tabasco entirely, and the potatoes too if you like. personally, i prefer it without the ketchup.

I have used boxed stuffing mix (chicken or turkey, not cornbread) with an egg and warm water - the amount called for on the box, to mix with my canned sallmon patties. My family loves them and we even eat the leftovers for breakfast the next day. By the way, my mom told me not to remove the bones. Just crush them and mix in with the above recipe for added calcium in the diet.

My aunt used to make salmon salad out of canned salmon. You know it is already cooked. You can leave in or take out the extra skin, bones, but mix with a little mayo, breaking up the pieces, and she used to chop a red delicious apple with the skin left on, and mix into the salad. You would be surprised how sweet the apple tastes along side the salmon and how the red color of the apple is pleasing. You can add celery or anything else you like, but try this sometime. It is good in the summer when its is hot and you don't want to cook.
