    This recipe made great use of my lonely leftover salmon fillet. I broke it apart, tossed it with the tomato (a whole small Roma), onion, and also a few capers (just sounded good), then whisked the olive oil and mustard together and drizzled it over. This was wonderful in a wrap, and I did enjoy the addition of the capers. Thanks for sharing your friend's recipe!

    I used a canned salmon from Whole Foods which is very good. Substituted Ikea's mustard and dill sauce for the mustard and salted to taste. Very good. Used in a sprouted whole grain wrap from Angelic baking.

    This made a very satisfying lunch between slices of whole grain bread. The salmon was canned Alaskan pink salmon. I did use a whole small homegrown tomato and the onions were sliced scallions. Following GaylaJ, I added a few capers to the mix and possibly next time around may try a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Something I will make again for a lunch on the go.

    Good! I used canned salmon. I imagine grilled would have been terrific.

    lovely recipe, very easy to make perfect fr that quick sarnie.. ??I gree with the others and feel thje ddition of capers would give it a bit more of a lift that i think it needed and i will try that next tme. I mitted the tomato as ididnt haveany fresh to hand. Still great though, thanks for sharing


I live in Canada, and I work in the restaurant industry (not a chef!). Don't have a favorite cookbook, but I love these internet sites, (especially this one, where you can get the dietary info - that's cool). I'm pretty passionate about animals, and about my health, (regardless of what my beer and cigarette habit might say about me!). The majority of food I like to eat is vegetarian, if not, vegan. I am able to enjoy a good steak every now and again, however. As long as I don't have to cook it. (I hate cooking meat - makes such a mess...) I have recently had a month off - I took the time to backpack around Mexico by myself. Crazy? Nah. Well, maybe...
