Default Leftovers Department: What to do with Salmon?

My 19 yr old was playing Mr. Mom the other day... quite a surprise. I quickly determined why: his new little girlfriend was over, and he was actually cooking for her. You could have knocked me over with a feather when he actually cleaned up the kitchen afterward... and, yes, did the dishes.

His next proclamation was even more shocking: "We're going to the grocery store... do you want me to pick up anything?" His Mom & I have decided that he must really like this girl.

So, I make him a list, and one item was some salmon. Major mistake, he comes home with a pound and a half.

Anyways, after I smoke it, and get one dinner from it... I've got a ton of salmon to deal with as leftovers. What to do?

Here's my solution, a salmon lasagna:




Step 1: The base, peas, salmon, mushrooms, in an alfredo, reduced...




Step 2: Build the first layer, add the cross sections and top...




Step 3: Build the 2nd layer, cross sections and top, bake...




Step 4: Cool, cut, serve...

The wife really liked this dish. The smokey taste of the salmon really flavored this dish nicely.

Now, if I can just get the boy to try salmon. Maybe if his girlfriend tells him it's good?

Why...because of the leftovers or the story about BTCG's son?

All that needs is some kicked up a notch apple sauce for a side. Nice solution!

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Please explain this leftover salmon?


Seriously, the lasagna looks wonderful. I'll try that soon. I've made salmon manicotti and ravioli a number of times and really like it.

WOW! Your dishes look amazing. Hard to believe you'd have any leftovers.

Our situation with our son is changing. he's discovering other foods, finally. For most of his life, he ate from the 3 food groups:

pizza, burgers, and chicken nuggets

He discovered fried shrimp recently, but won't touch salmon.

That leaves nearly a full pound after 1 meal for my 110 lb wife & I to eat: way too much.

I'll have to try the ravioli method next time... sounds like a natural for my little italian wifey. Thank you!

Looks fantastic!! I'd hit a few squares.

Most times we go with something like fish tacos or salmon dip with LO's. I'm liking this idea.

The base was quite tasty. I had about a half bowl left after finishing, and ate it right outta the bowl. Something about the salmon, peas, and mushrooms in the alfredo that just seem to go well together.

Thank you!

Where I come from - a pound and a half is an appetizer.........

One of the favorites of the MRI_Kiddos is squaw candy Alfredo pasta sauce.
