Best way to liven up canned salmon?

I noticed walmart sells cans of canned salmon (600 calories, 0 carbs) for $1.30, which agrees with my budget. But salmon doesn't really excite me- pretty fishy taste to it. Anyone have any good ideas for livening it up a bit?

I love making salmon patties with canned salmon, just chop a slice some onion (green or mature), mash the salmon, add a beaten egg, and some low carb spices like chilli, salt pepper, mix together and form patties! Shallow fry in olive oil or butter! YUM! I eat them alot with avocado and sour cream with steam veggies or salad! You can make some up in advance and they make a quick, healthy protein snack! Enjoy!

Ditto what Sherdi suggested. I make salmon patties and throw some ground up pork rinds in, as well. I didn't know you could make them without, but now I'm going to have to try them without the pork rinds.

RaspberryT - I get the salmon in the foil packs - no bones or skin in them. They cost around $1.88, so I believe the extra cents are worth it; otherwise, I wouldn't touch the stuff. . . bones - ick!

I'm not much of a salmon eater, either, but if you add a little lemon juice it cuts the fishiness.

Thanks for all the responses. I've done some experimenting myself tonight, and I really like mixing the salmon with Ragu Alfredo Sauce I got in a jar from Walmart. The sauce only has 3g carb per serving. The sauce also helps the bones go down easier- an added bonus.

This really tastes great- like a restaurant dish or something and it's very cheap. Jack mackeral is even cheaper (80 cents per can at Walmart) and tastes pretty much the same.

I like salmon patties, even though I've never made them myself. My mom has always made them, but I don't remember her adding an egg to it. I'm gonna have to make some and try it with the alfredo sauce.

When I don't feel like making patties I mix the salmon with horseradish/one carb ketchup and have 'salmon c*cktail'. ... Or just throw it into my large salad for lunch.

I'm really not fond of salmon but I can eat it if it's not 'plain'.

My favorite way to use canned salmon is to make a salmon spread:

1 can salmon
1 package cream cheese, softened
minced onion
liquid smoke
chopped pecans

Mash it all together until smooth. You can also add some horseradish for an extra kick. You can also form this into a ball or a log, refrigerate for a few hours, then roll in the nuts to make a great appetizer to serve to company.

Thank you

This works well with fat free cream cheese, too (for those watching fat and/or calories). I often have this for breakfast spread on a low carb bagel.

If I remember correctly; traditional non-lowcarb salmon patties are made with breadcrumbs....

....last time I made salmon patties, I used canned salmon, chopped green onion, lemon pepper, an egg, and a big handful of almond flour. Magawd it was good....I'll never miss breadcrumbs again.

Made salmon patties last night.

1 can pink salmon, 1 egg, pepper, garlic&pepper mix and about 3T of carbquick. Fried them up in coconut oil. Delicious! And the CQ gave them a nice brown coating. Next time I will add onion and gr peppers. Was in a rush.

In regards to the bones, I just smashed them up really well. You could not even tell they were in there. Previously I would pull them out, but I read on here they are a great source of calcium.

Salmon Soup

Quick, easy and tastes good. Mix and heat night before serving-it is always better after reheating the next day! Two or three servings. If you need or want low sodium-I use no salt added butter and Crown Prince Salmon-45 mg compared to 270 mg per their serving size. The salmon costs more from my pocket, but is better for my heart.

3.5 - 4 cups Milk
7.5 oz can Salmon
1 Tbls butter
a dash or two of pepper

I have several cans of salmon in the pantry. Does anyone have any recipes for a salmon salad. Do you just use the same seasonings you use for tuna salad and substitute the salmon ? I think I would want different seasonings; so does anyone have a good recipe ? Thanks!

I have found that 2T coconut flour added to a can of salmon along w/ the spices & an egg makes great tasting patties.

My wife makes this for me several times a year. Works great with (microwaved) cheese crackers. We always take it to parties so that I have something to snack on.

For a change I like it with curry powder added to the mayo.

Dill/sugarfree relish or chopped pickles added to it w/ mayo?

I use a canned salmon from Costco that doesn't have bones in it and I use it just like tuna - in salad, or with mayonaise, lemon juice to cut out the fishyness, and sometimes red onions, celery and pepper. - actually got this recipe from burn the fat.

Salmon is a staple food in our household. We catch it, can it, freeze it, smoke it, and love it! Currently have around 120 pounds in the freezer and in jars.

Here is a salmon salad recipe that we like. Got it off the internet a few years ago.

1 (15 oz.) can salmon
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/4 c. chopped green pepper
1/4 c. chopped Kosher dill pickles
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/3 c. salad dressing
3 tbsp. pickle liquid

Drain and flake salmon, removing any bones. Add remaining ingredients. Dilute salad dressing with pickle liquid and add to salmon. Mix thoroughly. A 1/2 teaspoon herb seasoning may be added, if desired.

Thanks Bilder for the salmon salad recipe. I have the Costco canned salmon and it is really good as far as canned salmon goes. I will definitely try your recipe. Thanks for posting.
