Leftover Salmon

Posted on March 5, 2012


Sometimes leftover salmon can taste as good as freshly cooked salmon, especially if you have just finished a satisfying ski. Earlier this season I shared a couple of bites of leftover Bristol Bay Naknek River King Salmon belly with my friend Jen in the Eaglecrest parking lot after we had taken some runs together and gone for a skate ski. Her expression of surprise and satisfaction at the rich flavor of the fish were almost as gratifying as the taste in my own mouth.

My day started early, as all Mondays do, and I am ready to build a sandwich with some of our leftover Naknek River King Salmon and lightly toasted homemade bread that our friend Sarah brought us the other night. Some mayo, sweet relish, and sliced tomatoes are all that is needed to make it delightful.

The only thing that could bring it even higher would be a nice Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Mmmmmm…
