  •  I like salmon very much, even the canned (5+ / 0-)

    kind.  Here is a very nice summertime salmon dish.

    Take two slices of bread (I like 100% whole wheat) and apply some mayonnaise.  Then shred some lettuce onto them (this is an opened faced sandwich), and some diced, fresh tomatoes.  Then chunk up some cold (refrigerated) salmon on top of it and drizzle with lemon juice.  If you prefer tarter sauce, use it instead of the mayonnaise.  I always keep a can of salmon in the refrigerator for just such cravings.

    Warmest regards,

    Doc

      that I really have to force myself to eat even a good, fresh salmon filet these days.  I believe I read somewhere that salmon, back in the 30's, was referred to as the poor man's steak.  I ate a lot of it, and got burnt out on it.  I'll be honest...I prefer catfish.

      Oregon: Sure...it's cold. But it's a damp cold.

        Sockeye salmon was cheap as dirt (as was lobster) not that long ago.  My grandmum cooked what she called salmon croquets, probably like your patties.  She used canned salmon (with the bones removed and eaten by my with great relish), crushed crackers, minced onion, seasonings (already salty enough, but MSG and black pepper) and a couple of eggs to bind the mixture.

        Then she would take around a quarter cup of the mixture and roll it in more cracker crumbs, flattened them a little, and fried them in Crisco.  Dad always made creole sauce to go with them.  I still like them.

        Warmest regards,

        Doc

          sockeye salmon was $9 a pound while the fresh local walleye was $13. Prices fluctuate in this range for each fish at the big box and regional grocers where I shop.

          Oh that's not the Lake Erie on Fidalgo Island by the way.

      we lived out there, between home and eat-out. Fish tacos are common in the region and we often had salmon tacos with those fixings you mention, with a Latino twist on the seasoning. Due to gluten intolerance I don't do sandwiches, except to use the bread as an inedible wrapper while driving. Gluten free bread is fine for toast but it lacks the tensile strength (?) to hold together for conventional sandwich eating, in my experience. So I do to corn wraps.
