Six salmon recipes previously posted on An American Housewife since 2006








Salmon Loaf

1/4 c fresh onion, chopped fine
1 t dried dill weed
1 T butter
1 slightly beaten egg
1/4 - 1/3 c milk or cream
1 c soft bread crumbs
Leftover salmon to equal about 2 cups  (*can use 2 cans of salmon - clean the skin and bones off and discard)

In a microwaveable bowl place the onion, dill and pepper with the pat of butter. Microwave about 2-3 minutes until the onion is tender. Combine the egg, bread crumbs, milk and butter/onion mixture. Add the salmon, breaking it apart as you add it. Mix with your hands for best blending. Shape into a loaf and place in a bread loaf pan (6X3") that has been greased or sprayed. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Broil for a few minutes to crisp up the top if you prefer a slight crust on your salmon loaf.

OPTIONAL:  Top with a white sauce to which you've added a peas and/or some cheese.

Simple White Sauce

2 T butter
1 T flour
1/2 t salt
1/8 t white pepper
1/8 t paprika
3/4 c milk
1 T lemon juice
1/2 c frozen pea's - thawed

Microwave the butter until melted; add the flour and seasonings, then the milk and lemon juice. Microwave 4-5 minutes, stirring after each minute. Add 1/2 cup peas. Stir and serve over salmon. 




Using the recipe for a salmon loaf, you can adapt it to make salmon patties; and can make a low carb version by playing with the recipe a bit.

For a low carb Salmon Cake I use;

1 can salmon
diced celery
diced onion
butter
1 egg
lemon
pepper
salt

Saute' the onion and celery in the butter until soft.  Add it to a mixing bowl with the salmon and an egg.  Mix it up and add seasonings to taste.  Pan fry in butter/olive oil until golden brown on both sides and done in the middle.





Salmon Salad

2/3 cup Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar (Roasted Garlic or Original)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons dried dill weed, divided
4 salmon fillets, about 5 ounces each
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
16 asparagus spears
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1 tablespoon capers Hearts of Romaine lettuce

Combine rice vinegar, garlic, salt and 1 teaspoon dill weed to make dill vinaigrette; stir well. Place salmon fillets in a shallow non metallic container. Add 4 tablespoons dill vinaigrette; marinate 30 to 60 minutes. Drain salmon and discard marinade. Grill or saute salmon, starting with the skin side down, until cooked as desired. Cover and set aside.

Add olive oil to remaining vinaigrette. Blanch asparagus and place in shallow, rimmed dish. Drizzle 3 tablespoons vinaigrette over asparagus. Combine tomatoes, capers, 2 tablespoons vinaigrette and remaining 1/2 teaspoon dill weed.

To serve, arrange lettuce leaves and 4 asparagus spears on each serving plate. Remove skin from salmon and place one fillet on each plate. Spoon a generous ribbon of tomato mixture over salmon, lettuce and asparagus. Serve with remaining dill vinaigrette, as desired. Salmon may be served hot, room temperature or cold. Serves 4
 

 

Salmon Dip for Crackers

1 lb can salmon
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 T lemon juice
1 t  grated onion
1 t  prepared horseradish
1/4 t  liquid smoke 

1/2 c finely chopped pecans
3 T snipped/minced fresh parsley

Drain and flake salmon. Remove skin and bones.  Combine salmon w/ cream cheese, lemon juice, onion, horseradish and liquid smoke. Mix well. Chill several hours or overnight. Shape salmon mixture into a ball and roll in nut mixture. Chill again, and serve w/ assorted crackers. 






Crab Stuffed Salmon with Shrimp

4 salmon fillets or patties 
6 oz. real crab meat
1 T onion, diced fine
1 T chopped fresh parsley
1 T celery, chopped fine
5 T butter
1/2 c cracker crumbs
1 egg
lemon pepper garlic seasoning
4 large raw shrimp, cleaned

Preheat oven to 375. Sprinkle each filet or patty lightly with salt and pepper. Saute' the onions, parsley and celery in 5 T butter. When tender, remove from heat. Add the crumbs, flaked crab meat and egg. Mix and season to taste with lemon garlic seasoning. Spoon a walnut sized mound onto the top of each salmon patty.  Bake 20 minutes, top with a large shrimp, return to the oven to bake an additional 7-10 minutes or until your fish is done.






Crab Stuffed Flounder or fish of your choice

6 fish filets  (sole, flounder, tilapia)
1/2 lb. real crab meat
1 T onion, diced fine
1T red pepper, diced fine (*optional)
1 T chopped fresh parsley
1 T celery, chopped fine
6 T butter

lemon pepper garlic seasoning


Preheat oven to 375. Sprinkle each fillet with salt and pepper. Coil each fillet into a buttered muffin tin. Saute the onions, parsley and celery in 3 T butter. When tender, remove from heat. Add the crumbs, flaked crab meat and the egg. Mix and season to taste. Spoon into the center of each fish fillet. Brush with the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter. Bake 20-30 minutes or until your fish is done.








(Comment from me:  Wow, this one is from 2008 - over 11 years ago already! This one isn't low carb, obviously!  But you could use low carb bread and leave out the crackers completely.)
 
Crab Stuffed Salmon
*this is my own recipe for crab cakes but it can be used as a stuffing for salmon

4 pieces soft bread grated or ground in a food processor
1/3 c mayonnaise
1 egg
2 green onions, diced with greens
2 T parsley, dried
2 T lemon juice
1 T Old Bay Seasoning
1 t mustard
1 lb. crab meat
4 oz. cream cheese
saltine crackers - approximately 2 handfuls crushed in your fingers until fine

Fresh salmon
Lemon Pepper Seasoning


Mix the stuffing ingredients. Add enough crackers so the stuffing is not too dry, but moist enough to hold its shape when scooped up with an ice cream scoop or large serving spoon.

Place the salmon pieces on a greased piece of parchment on a baking sheet or an oiled baking sheet. You can make as many or few as you like but this stuffing recipe will make approximately 10. I made 6 stuffed salmon servings and made the rest into crab cakes by flattening the scoop and frying in a bit of oil on the stove top until golden.

Sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning on each of the salmon pieces and top with a large ice cream scoop of stuffing on each. Bake at 400 degree's until the fish is done (I baked mine about 15 minutes) and then placed under the broiler for 2 minutes to crisp and brown the top of the stuffing.
