Salmon Sandwich

Salmon Sandwich

Red salmon is loaded with health benefits, especially omega-3 fatty acids to protect your heart. Besides being an excellent source of protein, salmon also benefits your brain, joints, eyes, and bones so be sure to leave the bones in for their calcium. Once you mash them up you won’t even know they’re there. I remove the skin because most toxins found in fish are concentrated in the skin.

    Hi Jenny, I too have made salmon patties for years and have them for dinner occasionally and my husband will eat those but not fresh salmon. I love salmon in sandwiches and salads and use lowfat mayo and finely diced celery when I mix it and tuna. I was raised eating creamed salmon on toast for lunch or dinner and it is a favorite.

    I’ve had a tuna sandwich but never one with salmon. Never really though of it. I love salmon. Grew up eating it as a child. Looks delicious. I will be trying this…btw, my mom still makes salmon patties, leaves the bones, but removes the skin as well. Last week she made salmon patties and added purple onion to them and omg,…yum!…one more thing, sometimes I use mustard for dipping…

    Hi Jenny, i just love your website and all your great recipes! Sometimes I drop in for a short visit and find myself still here after 2 hours! I, too, make this wonderful Salmon Sandwich using Miracle Whip Light and adding about a cup of diced celery for lots of crunch. The 2 flavours go so well together and extra veggies are always a good thing! The added lettuce is a great idea… Thanks! My husband often asks… “Is this one of Jenny’s recipes.” And chances are, It is! Thanks again for all your help in feeding my family deliciously healthy!
