Salmon Spread or Salmon Salad Sandwiches

Sherry Blizzard


I love tuna salad. My mom made fantastic tuna salad that included boiled eggs, chopped lettuce, chopped pecans, mayo and anything else she felt like putting in there. Living in Alaska, we cook salmon on the grill at least 2x a week. What to do with that leftover grilled salmon that we didn't eat the night before?

I got it in my head several years ago to debone and skin that salmon, and use it like I would for tuna salad sandwiches. Do you know it is even better than tuna salad and has since become a staple in our home.

There is ALWAYS a tub of salmon salad in the fridge...just waiting.

How to Make Salmon Spread or Salmon Salad Sandwiches

  2. Use a fork to smash the salmon into fine pieces.
  3. Add mayo and other ingredients.
  4. This is the ONLY food item that my husband insist on having at all times in the fridge. It is that good. Change it up from time to time...this time I added in a bottled chimichurri spread of cilantro, garlic and time it might be dill can vary the recipe to your own taste. Also take into consideration how you grilled your fish in the first place. Butter, salt and pepper is his favorite...this one, I used tereyaki basil marinade. It's all relative.
