What do you do with leftover salmon?
I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I’ve made quiches, I’ve made patties, I’ve made salads and sandwiches. I’d run out of ideas. So I hit the web and found this recipe on SparkPeople‘s website.
SparkPeople is a weight tracking website that’s been around for years. I would highly recommend it if you are looking to shed a few pounds. In my experience, the best way to lose weight is to track what you eat. SparkPeople make’s food journaling a simple task. It’s easy to get started, and even better, it’s free!
Anyway, they had a recipe for salmon puffs, so I thought I’d give it a try. I was impressed with how quickly the meal was to pull together, and the puffs were light and flavorful.
That’s what I call a great way to use up my salmon! Happy cooking!
