Oh, ye Gods. Okay-- I'm making this dish this week. Have you ever added cream to this to make it into a bisque?

I use either canned salmon or canned tuna, drained, when making Salmon/Tuna Mousse.

Blitz one can of fish with about half a cup of butter, and a generous squeeze of lemon. I almost always microplane a clove of garlic in. The end result should be a smooth mousse - though it's not very airy. I like to pipe it onto cucumber rounds, Lavash crackers or as low-carb pita filling. It's so flavourful and fresh. I really love it.

Ack. No bones. That is the worse. Ruins the whole experience for me. LOL. I am picky about my food. Has to be boneless/skinless salmon.

I just had some for lunch, too.
chopped baby spinach w/wild salmon, lemon, olive oil, avocado cubes and red pepper flakes. Delish. Num Num in my tum tum.

No, I've not used heavy cream, just the half and half. Back when I did low fat I used canned milk and that was very good too. We love it!!

Costco carries wild caught salmon in cans. They are the size of tuna cans with no bones or skin. A 6-pk costs $9. I never read the labels on the grocery store cans. I didn't know they were wild caught. Are you sure?

I went to the store today and the salmon said "Alaska canned" or "canned in Alaska", not wild caught. There are a lot of salmon farms in Alaska. Canned in Alaska doesn't mean wild caught. This was a Best Buy can at Price Chopper so maybe WM is different. The Costco ones say "Wild caught".

It should say wild caught.
A lot of them are farm raised salmon.

I heard or read that sometimes it will say "canned in the USA" but the fish could be caught outside of the states in foreign countries. It has to be labeled where the fish is from.

Since I have been eating more salmon in my diet I found this recipe to be really good. I found it at food DOT COM.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Awesome Low Carb Salmon Patties

"These are so delish that you don't even know they are LC."

14 3/4 ounces salmon, drained
1/2 cup pork rinds ( finely ground)
1/4 cup minced onions
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons parsley flakes
1 minced garlic cloves
2 large beaten eggs
3 tablespoons mayonnaise


Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for 1/2 hour -(optional, but they handle easier).
Make into 4 patties and cook until browned on either side turning once.
I make a double batch and freeze part of it in flattened patties in zipper bags, and just thaw in the microwave, then fry.
Also good as a sauce on them: mix 1 part blue cheese dressing to 1 part horsy mustard, or Jack Daniels mustard, or some kind of flavored mustard -- it is yummy!
