    Texas-Style Lomi Lomi Salmon Salad

    1 lb salmon fillet, cooked, chilled and flaked
    1 bunch green onion, chopped
    1 large tomato, chopped
    1/4 cup onion, chopped
    1/2 cup salsa ranch dressing
    2 cups uncooked pasta (large noodles)

    Boil pasta on until done then immediately douse with cold water until slightly chilled.
    Mix rest of ingredients together.
    Serve mixture over pasta.
    Note: Best if served chilled.

    Capellini With Salmon and Lemon-Dill-Vodka Sauce

    1 onion, chopped
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    3 cups chicken broth
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/3 cup vodka
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup dill, chopped
    1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest, grated
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    2 cups salmon, broiled and flaked
    10 ounces capellini (angel hair pasta)

    In a large saucepan cook onion in the oil over medium heat until soft (5-8 minutes).

    Add broth, cream, vodka and salt and bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring occasionally until sauce is reduced to 2 cups (45-60 minutes).

    Remove from heat and stir in dill, lemon zest and juice and pepper. Reserve 1/2 cup sauce.

    Add salmon to saucepan and cook over medium low heat until fish is heated through (2-4 minutes).

    Meanwhile cook pasta according to package directions.

    Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water; drain pasta.

    Return pasta to pot and toss with reserved sauce.

    Put pasta in large bowl and spoon fish and sauce over top; toss before serving.

            My vote is the salmon patties, spicy version.

                I too had some left over salmon from costco and found this recipe. I made a modification with the rice and served it with a Newberg sauce made from a package.

                Cajun Salmon Patty Recipe
                14.75 oz can of pink salmon ( I used the cooked left over fresh salmon)
                1 teaspoon garlic salt
                1/2 teaspoon dill'
                1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
                2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
                2 eggs, beaten
                2 cups of prepared Spanish rice mix (I used 1 pk of knorr/lipton fiesta sides taco rice package)
                2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
                1 cup bread crumbs- (I always use 1/2 panko and 1/2 bread crumbs)

                2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil for frying

                Mix salmon, dill, garlic salt, Cajun spice, cooked rice, cheese, eggs, Worcestershire sauce and bread crumbs. Make into patties.
                In a non stick skillet, heat vegetable oil on med head and fry patties on each side until golden brown.
