Salmon Melts

salmon meltsAfter having lived in the Pacific Northwest for 6 years, our family really loves salmon. We love fresh salmon or the wild-caught frozen fillets cooked on the grill or broiled in the oven.

Sometimes, though, wild-caught salmon is really expensive here in Michigan. I have found a good brand of wild-caught CANNED salmon at Costco and through Thrive Market.

This is a quick go-to meal for those busy nights when you still want to feed your family a nourishing meal. I was first inspired to make it based on the recipe over at Passionate Homemaking. I’ve changed this up a bit to fit our families preferences.

*Add a side of Zesty Roasted Potatoes and a side salad for a perfect meal!

Salmon Melts

6 slices bread (preferably homemade) – I use fermented organic bread from Little Rooster

2 (6oz) cans wild-caught salmon (leftover salmon works well too!)

1/4 cup organic mayonnaise (or homemade)

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 Tbsp lemon juice

shredded sharp cheddar cheese (preferably raw)


prebaked salmon melts1. In a bowl, mix all ingredients until well incorporated.

2. Place slices of bread on a baking sheet and divide salmon mixture evenly on top of each one.

3. Sprinkle with cheese.

4. Broil for several minutes until cheese starts to bubble and turn light brown.

Serve and enjoy hot!
