Monday 2 July
One of the things we like most about making whole poached salmon is the leftovers, and the leftovers of the leftovers. We always get three meals from a whole salmon: the salmon proper (der Lachs an sich), then cakes, then chowder (see above).
This was also the showdown, the Cake-Off: Salmon Cakes vs. last night's Crab Cakes. The salmon cakes, again with mayo and a little chopped red onion and celery in the mix (not too much, this ain't tuna salad), won, we think, by a small margin, though they were helped along by a caper deglazing sauce, and a cuke and tomato salad on the side.
