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 an old cookbook. I modified it a bit and it has become a staple in our menu rotation.
- 2 6 ounce cans boneless salmon
- 6 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 bunch green onion chopped
- 1 celery stalk chopped
- 2 tubes crescent rolls I use the low fat kind
- 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 drained salmon.
- Take the crescent rolls and put two together to make a square.
- 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.
