Spicy Salmon Sushi Bake
Sushi Bake! What the heck is that?! Well, this unexpected, fun creation is an intermediary step to homemade sushi (which has a bit of a learning curve). It’s a cross between sushi and casserole. And we are totally here for it!
This sushi bake is freestyle, like dips, ice cream sundaes, and other casserole dishes. Once you understand the components, you can adjust the ingredients as you see fit.
However, this version from Danielle of Love From The Kitchen has nori sheets (dried seaweed sheets), canned salmon, sliced cucumbers, and sriracha mayo. We can’t wait to try it!
Citrusy Kale Salmon Salad
You will feel so good after eating this citrusy kale salmon salad from Mariska of My Chef’s Apron. It starts with chopped leafy dark green kale that you lovingly massage with olive oil until tender.
But next, you add the orange slices, fennel, parsley, canned salmon, and mozzarella before drizzling with uber-flavorful lemon, orange, and dijon dressing.
Dill Salmon Mousse
Even show-stopping dishes like this dill salmon mousse from Joss of In The Kitch uses canned salmon. Joss even ups the ante a bit by topping it with black caviar. But as impressive as this mousse is, it takes less than 20 minutes to make and requires a few common ingredients like cream cheese, white wine, lemon, canned salmon, and unflavored gelatin. Serve it with crackers or toast, and your holiday guests may never leave!
Air Fryer Salmon Patties
For a satisfying meal, all will love, see this salmon patty recipe from Jessica of Fantabulosity. It’s tasty, old-school middle-of-the-week dining. Also, it’s nutritious, and you can make it even easier with the air fryer.
Seriously, it makes a good case. Mix the ingredients, form the patties, and plop them in the air fryer. Ten minutes later, serve with rice or quinoa, and you’ve got a supper the whole family will love.
Salmon Avocado Salad Sandwich
Alisa of The Delicious Spoon recommends baked fresh salmon fillets for this salmon salad sandwich. But you can certainly use the wallet-friendlier canned stuff.
Along with salmon, the delicious sammie features nourishing ingredients like celery, green onion, greek yogurt, and creamy avocado. And dill and lemon juice bring loads of flavor. Serve it between slices of bread, as an open-face sandwich, or as a lettuce wrap, and you’ve got a healthy lunch to look forward to.
Korean BBQ Salmon Stir-Fry
Let’s see, with ingredients like rice (brown), salmon, broccoli, sesame seeds and oil, minced garlic, this Korean bbq stir fry from Rebecca will bring you Strength & Sunshine.
However, tastiness isn’t the only benefit here. Rebecca prudently recommends pouch salmon (you can use canned) and minute rice for a meal that’s as delicious as it is quick.
Canned Salmon Salad
There’s something viscerally attractive about foods like this canned salmon salad from Summer Yule. Do you immediately smile? We know the feeling. We believe it’s our body’s way of saying, yeah, we want that.

Salmon Chowder with Canned Salmon
With all the deliciousness you come to expect from chowders, this salmon version from Meaghan of The Quicker Kitchen brings all the restaurant-quality flavor but is far less fussy. In addition, it has all the ingredients you expect in a thick chowder, like potatoes, corn, celery, onions, and carrots.
