One summer, I worked at a small fishing inn at River's Inlet on the coast of British Columbia, where lucky fishermen sometimes caught 60-pound spring salmon! This is a nice alternative for fixing canned salmon. It also makes excellent use of fresh asparagus. —Abby Crawford
My family likes this dish because it's a different way to enjoy the bounty of fish we have here. Two sauces—one rich, warm and cheesy, and the other light, cool and refreshing—complement the salmon nicely.—Sue Bolsinger, Anchorage, Alaska
"A good friend gave me this quick-and-easy recipe that uses canned salmon, wild rice and frozen broccoli," writes Brigitte Schaller of Flemington, Missouri. "I often serve this casserole with a wilted spinach salad for a complete meal."
“This easy and delectable recipe actually converted me to a fish lover,” writes Geraldine Buba from Palos Hills, Illinois. “It was given to me by a fishmonger decades ago and is frequently requested by family and friends. Even those who don’t like fish like this recipe!”
TIP: Tilapia or other white fish make easy substitutions for the orange roughy fillets in Geraldine’s recipe.
Moist tender trout is draped in a creamy Parmesan cheese coating that makes this dish elegant enough to serve company. "I picked up this recipe at the campground where we were staying," says Mary Zimmerman of Spring Lake, Michigan. "I also use the delicious sour cream mixture on salmon."
Spreading fish fillets with a seasoned mayonnaise and sour cream mixture keeps the fish moist while baking. For the most flavor, use fresh basil, which is abundant in gardens and grocery stores in summer.
Meet the Cook: These bundles take a little time to assemble, but they're worth it! They're always popular at a shower or buffet...and they're great for an everyday dinner, too. This flavorful dish goes nicely with rice pilaf or a saucy pasta.
