Susan's notes for this recipe:
This was on the menu at my elementary school in Kezar Falls, Maine. How many years ago was that? Too Many.I cannot believe I found this recipe!
I really loved this and when we had it I was in Heaven. I remember the ladies handing out the food would put a saltine cracker the size of 9 squares together. Do any of you remember that? Then they would put this Wiggle over the cracker. I was always in dog heaven when that happened.Everyone else hated it.LOL Maybe you will also but honestly, you should try it,we didn't have the luxury of Salmon. It was just 'Shrimp Wiggle' -you know the rest.
Make it Your Way...

Bring just to the boiling point, stirring constantly.

Gradually whisk in the flour with a fork, and continue cooking and stirring until slightly thickened.

Stir in the peas, and let the mixture heat back up to a simmer while stirring constantly.

Mix in the salmon, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Continue cooking and stirring until thick and heated through.

Serve over saltine crackers, toast or buttered egg noodles.

LOL, I would probably like it too but my husband wouldn't touch anything with salmon in it. I think I will buy a little pouch of salmon & make it for me.

LOL Don't feel badly. My Husband is a fisherman, catches all kinds of salmon and won't eat it. Some day I think I am going to put food coloring in it and not tell him. I bet he would eat it then! lol Maybe it is just all the yucky stuff he sees when cleaning...I don't is hilarious though.... That's it a little pouch and make it for yourself...LOL

Thanks Carlita...
