For some reason salmon and Christmas go together in my house! We usually enjoy salmon on crackers, bagels, and toast throughout the Christmas season. Our favorite salmon meal is salmon turnovers. I found this recipe over 10 years ago in some dated cookbook. I modified it a bit and it has become a staple in our menu rotation.
Salmon Turnovers- (makes 8 turnovers)
- 2 (6 oz)cans boneless salmon
- 6 oz cream cheese
- 1 bunch green onion chopped
- 1 celery stalk chopped
- 2 tubes crescent rolls ( I use the low fat kind)
Leave out cream cheese to soften
Cook onions and celery in about a tablespoon of butter on the stove top for 3 to 5 minutes.
Drain the salmon and put in a mixing bowl.
Mix together cooked onions, celery, cream cheese and salmon (drained)
Put a scoop (about 1/3 cup) of the mixture in the center of the square, then fold up the corners towards the center.
Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
This is a great recipe for a quick meal. It takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, and is easy enough for a kid to make.
