Leftover Salmon Ideas

In case you didn't know, I love salmon!  We like to have it at least once a week if we can.  I always make a little extra for lunch the next day so below is just a few ways I like to eat leftover salmon. :D

Leftover Salmon in Leftover Cabbage Soup

Leftover Salmon in Cabbage Soup
Leftover Salmon in leftover Cabbage Soup is one of my favourites.  Place the leftover salmon in a bowl and pour your heated up cabbage soup over top.  Let sit for a few minutes for the salmon to warm up, and eat away. Very yummy!  

Leftover Salmon Stir Fry

Put olive oil and butter in a pan and saute the chopped onion, garlic, and peppers for a few minutes. Then add the chopped cooked salmon and the spices. Stir it all up and then add the rice.  Stir occasionally until heated through.

Leftover Salmon Wrap

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread with Strawberry Jam

Another yummy variation of the Banana Bread recipe.  

3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla 
6 bananas

3/4 cups of chocolate chops, optional

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Butter and lightly powder a bundt pan with cocoa.
In a bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
In your mixer's bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar and then add the peanut butter. Add in the eggs, vanilla, and bananas.
Slowly add in the flour mixture, but don't over beat. Pour batter into the bundt pan and tap the pan on the counter a couple of times to remove any air bubbles.  
Take the top rack out of the oven and bake on middle rack for approx. 70 minutes.  I use a long wooden skewer to test for doneness.  Cool ten minutes in the pan on a rack and then place a large plate over top and flip cake. Leave to cool with pan on. I like my slices with Strawberry Jam. As always, have fun with it and make it your own. :D

Pork Loin Crock Pot Roast

Pork Loin Crock Pot Roast
Do you remember the Crock Pot Pulled Pork recipe I posted earlier from Low Carb Crock.Com? This recipe is a 'Christine It' version which has now become a family favourite so we now have TWO fabulous new recipes!  Win/Win!

1 Chicken cube dissolved into 1 cup of boiled water
2 lb boneless pork loin 
1 1/2 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp Montreal Chicken Spice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp chili powder
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper
1 bottle of Diana Sauce, I used Western Smokehouse or use your favourite BBQ sauce

Lightly oil the inside of your crock pot, I use olive oil.  Pour the chicken broth into the crock pot and then place the pork loin into the crock pot.  Place the spices and Diana Sauce over the pork loin. Cook on high for approximately 4 hours or until the meat is fully cooked.  (I like to turn the pork loin over at the half way mark.)  Place the pork loin into a deep dish, slice and then pour the crock pot sauce over top.  As you can see below I served it with rice.  Very tasty. :D  The possibilities are endless!  As always, have fun and make it your own.
