canned salmon

I am sure many of you are familiar with the canned salmon from costco. I have like 6 cans of them, what are some delicious and low carb things can i make from them. I was just going to pop the can and pour over some lettuce. Boring!!!!

I like it with english cucumber, olive oil, lemon, red wine vinegar, sea salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and a little oregano. Sometimes i'll add in some feta cheese crumbles. Very yummy on top of thick tomato slices

Salmon patties......... So good

salmon
mayonaisse
finely chopped red onion
finely chopped celery
crushed pork rinds
egg
old bay seasoning

Make into patties and either fry in olive oil or bake in the oven. Delicious.

Can substitute canned crab meat or the crab meat in the refirgerated area in Costco for crab cakes. Also delicious.

When I seen the canned salmon title, it took me back when I was a kid and my Mom making salmon patties with crushed crackers... Haven't had them since so I'll definitely be making this. And, the crab cakes sounds awesome. Thanks!

salmon muffins

I shkeeve on the spine, so I pick most of it out.

Preheat oven to 350* Mix large can salmon in a large bowl, add 2 eggs, beaten. Other mix ins:
3 TBS coconut oil, melted
lemon pepper
1/4 HWC or yogurt or sour cream
sliced green onions
1/2 cup mayonnaise
parsley

Prepare muffin tins, coat very generously with c-oil.If you have any leftover, add to mixture. Mix all ingredients well, (by hand is just fine) divide batter into tins and bake at 350 * for about 25 minutes if you are using jumbo tins. Will make 4 HUGE muffins.

I love Costco's canned salmon. No skin or bones or yukky unidentifiable bits. I usually just mix it up like I would tuna salad with mayo, celery, and onion. I just eat it with a fork or spread it on lettuce.

I open a can - drain - pick out the bones (and eat!) - break up with a fork - pile on LC cracker or pork rinds - enjoy. I really like salmon just plain out of the can.

If you don't like to eat the bones you should try the canned salmon at Costco. Its by Wolf & Bear. It is wild alaskan salmon and it is skinless/boneless. Very yummy.

ETA: It is Bear & Wolf. LOL. I got the name backwards

I made some salmon cakes tonight with coconut flour.

1 can (14.5 oz)
4 eggs
1/4 cup coconut flour

Mix the eggs with the flour first then add the salmon. This makes the base and you can add whatever you like to it. I added:

1 tsp Old Bay
Some sauteed celery and onion and red pepper
salt and pepper
juice of half lemon
fresh parsley

refrigerate for 30 minutes and it's much easier to form into patties.

Tonight I coated with parmesan from a can but I have made them without coating and they are still great.

I fry in Rice Bran Oil till golden but you could obviously use any oil.

I serve with a mayo sauce with lemon juice, dill pickle juice or fresh dill if I have it and some cayenne pepper.

I haven't been able to get to the store but have been craving these all week. Instead of going out for date night tomorrow night, I'll make these for dh. He'll be impressed becuase I'm an awful cook but this sounds easy enough.

That is what I use. The first year they had it in the store, I only bought a couple of sleeves. I used those up and loved it and was unable to get anymore. When they ran out, they never got anymore back in until the next year. When I saw they were carrying it again, I started to pick up multiple sleeves everytime I went in, in case they stopped carrying it, but that hasn't happened since the first year. Now I have ALOT of canned salmon stored.

I only use this kind or I use the frozen wild Alaskan salmon filets they carry. I've used the filets for salmon patties also, but I always feel like I'm wasting a great piece of fish.

Actually, I like the bones, etc. but DH doesn't so I eat them before I offer any to him! Also, we don't have a Costco anywhere near by. But thanks for the info.

I fix salmon muffins for dh. Oven 350 degrees F and cook 30 mins.

12 oz. salmon, drained
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped onions (all the finely chopped go into the Ninja!)
1/4 cup finely grated cheese (I use mexican blend -- from Costco)

Break the salmon up, add everything and mix well. Makes 6 large muffins or 12 regular size muffins. He takes them for work and says they're great! I've used other veggies in them.....they are very versatile! dianne

Wonderful Canned Salmon

Good Morning and Hello Everyone,
I'm new to this site and am so happy I have found you and this low carb recipe area.
CANNED SALMON: IF BONES ARE A BOTHER, remove salmon from can and hold in one hand. Using other hand gently open up and seperate salmon by layers and remove spine and smaller bones and discard. I don't care for the crunch either but I do love the salmon.
ALSO: Instead of using bread crumbs or crackers I use 1-2 eggs added to 1 can salmon mixture (onions, seasonings & parsley) as it holds patties together nicely when frying in oil. The mixture is quite moist but fries beautifully.
CURRENTLY: I am on the Atkins program and am doing well.

I'm so glad you are doing well. I found Atkins 12 years ago and never looked back. Welcome to the board. And thanks for the tips on canned salmon.

I love canned salmon mixed with sour cream (instead of mayo) and shredded super sharp cheddar

For a simple lunch or snack, I love to use this salmon by mixing it with mayo - just like you would with tuna - then spreading it on some of the American Deluxe cheese "crackers". Yummy - and easy! I'm all about easy!

I like easy cooking too, actually I'm not a fan of cooking at all, lol. I still never have made salmon patties but like the idea of opening a can and mixing it with mayo ... that sounds so good!
