what do u do with canned salmon?

I was going to do my moms recipe (fried patties in butter, drowned to death in mushroom soup) but I only eat like that alone, I wont serve it to my kids... what's a good recipe that's still nummy but doesn't reek of trans fat and sodium?

  • I'm afraid that this may have a lot of sodium, unless you make it from scratch yourself, but I've found on days I'm tired that I use a box of potatoes au gratin and a can of salmon and maybe a can of peas or some frozen vegetables and put together for a quick meal.

  • Low Fat Salmon Patties


    1 (16 ounce) can pink salmon
    * 4 egg whites
    * 1 cup panko
    * 1/2 cup diced green pepper
    * 1/2 cup diced red onion
    * 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    * 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (optional)
    * 1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
    * 1/2 cup panko or bread crumbs, to coat patties

    Empty salmon into bowl and crush bones. Mix all ingredients except panko together and form 6 patties. Coat both sides of each patty with panko. Fry in a pan sprayed with olive oil or canola oil spray until lightly browned on both sides.

  • I just pan-fry the salmon in its own juices, then mix the cooked salmon in a bowl with some old bay seasoning & bread crumbs of choice (we use rice bread crumbs b/c of food allergies) to a "sticky" consistency. Then I make a smallish meatball, squish it flat (silver dollar sized) & pop it back into the hot pan (still no added oil or other fat, just use the salmon's own oil) and brown them up a bit.

    My son eats these little salmon cakes faster than I can cook them! They keep well in the refrigerator and taste good hot or cold.

  • My dad makes salmon loaf. I find any seafood nasty, so I don't even use it. I think he just uses seasonings, an egg, breadcrumbs and put in a loafpan and bake. Google salmon recipes or check out the foodnetwork website and see what is on there.
