Salmon & Pesto Pasta Salad

Salmon & Pesto Pasta Salad
1 can No Salt Chinook Salmon (7.5 oz)
1/2 cup broccolini (young broccoli spears), chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup asparagus, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup english peas
6 oz pesto
1/2 pkg (about 8 oz) fusilli noodles (spiral pasta)
Parmesan cheese

Boil water and add pasta. While the pasta cooks, steam broccolini, asparagus and peas until fork-tender (about 4-5 minutes). Drain the noodles and cool by running cold water over them in the colendar. Cool the vegetables the same way. Combine noodles and vegetables in a large mixing bowl. Add a pinch of salt and fresh pepper, stir, then add all of the pesto and stir well.

In a large saucepan, warm the noodle mixture over medium heat. Once thoroughly warmed, add the parmesan (as much or as little as you’d like!) and then add the salmon (drain first). Once the salmon has warmed, remove from heat and serve immediately.


Salmon Burgers

Recipe by Bill Harrison

Makes two to four patties, depending upon size and ingredient ratios.
Ingredients:
1 can Alaskan Red or Chinook Salmon
Paprika
Cream or prepared horseradish
Dry Mustard
1 egg
Plain yogurt or sour cream
1 small stick celery
1/4TH small onion
Salt
Pepper
Dill
Panko or traditional bread crumbs.
Mix 1 egg with a heaping tablespoon of yogurt or sour cream in a medium bowl. Add seasonings to taste, salmon and diced vegetables. Stir in Panko or breadcrumbs until mix begins to cake. Form into patties by hand, usually on some wax paper. It can be difficult to find the right consistency of mix for patties to hold together. Id recommend starting with the mix a bit wet, then slowly adding Panko until it seems right. Patties can be baked in the oven for 20 minutes or so, turning once, at around 350 or pan fried in oil. If the latter is chosen, Id recommend dropping the formed patties in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes, as the cold will help them hold together when adding to the pan. This is a non-issue if baking as they may be formed right on the baking dish. Serve either as a traditional burger or on a bed of greens.
