After a fishing trip to Alaska last year (which I still need to blog about), we have some large pieces of salmon in the freezer. As someone who rarely cooked fish before, this has given me a wonderful opportunity to try new recipes and cooking techniques.
The large pieces sometimes mean several days of salmon. Crafting a new meal out of leftovers is a creative exercise of which I’m very fond! Here’s how I got three delicious meals out of one generous piece of salmon.
Dinner: White wine-poached salmon topped with Pungent Parsley and Caper Sauce. Green and yellow beans almondine.
Brunch: Salmon cake benedict on 7 Stars Olive Bread with bearnaise sauce. The leftover salmon and sauce made 5 salmon cakes when mixed with some onion, egg, old bread, and spices.
Sometimes, leftovers can be quite luxurious.
