Creamed Salmon!

If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that I wrote about being invited to teach my daughter B, how to make a recipe called:  Creamed Salmon.  Believe it or not, I praise God and thank Jesus for this opportunity.

When she had other company drop in, equipped to make dinner of another sort, I offered to do this another time.  B and her friend J, both wanted to know how to make it, and since my grandchildren are big eaters, I agreed to teach them, last Thursday, when we were all gathered at B's home.

What I forgot to post yesterday, was the recipe.  And, the pics I took.  Yes, I took some pics, but forgot to do so at every stage of preparation.  Still, I believe you'll get the picture (pun intended)!

Creamed Salmon (usually served on toast, but could also be used mixed with pasta)

For the purpose of this recipe, I'll use the small can of salmon. However, if you use the large can, triple (3 x) the recipe for the cream sauce.

1 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. flour
1 cup milk
1 can Salmon (approximately 213 grams, red, or pink) - cleaned/bones removed, etc.
Peas to taste (optional)

Melt the butter in a pot, add the flour and mix well, stirring while on low heat for a moment or two.  Add in a few drops of milk at a time, mixing so that there are no lumps being created.  Once enough milk has been added that the mixture is not lumpy, yet in liquid style, add the rest of the milk.

Stir regularly, on medium-low heat, until the mixture thickens. 

Add the cleaned salmon and continue stirring for a few minutes.  Add peas before serving, if desired.  Serve over toast. 

Note:  This recipe can be made ahead of time and reheated.


Here are some pics.  I wish I had remembered to take pics at every stage of preparation, but these will have to do!

Here is the thickened cream sauce.

Here is the cleaned red salmon.

Here is the creamed salmon after peas have been added.

Mmm...good.  Enjoy!

This reminded me of a passage of scripture.  Proverbs 16:3, "Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established."

Although I committed the plans of that day to my Lord, it seemed that the plans changed, due to change of circumstances at my daughter's home, with her having unexpected company, etc. 

Even so, God was with me.  He helped me sort out the newly established changed plans and worked out everything, just the way He wanted, making sure He included my plans in His.  Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
