Salmon Toast

Salmon Toast is a great way to use leftovers for a quick, healthy, and tasty lunch option. I had leftover grilled salmon and asparagus so I decided to make a little spread to go on top of sourdough toast.

I also had some leftover Japanese pickled plums, umeboshi, from making Onigiri (Japanese Rice Balls) and I decided to try dicing one up and sprinkling it on top. It was a great decision! I loved the bursts of salty goodness.

It feels weird creating a recipe for leftovers because it kind of defeats the purpose. You’re not supposed to go out and get specific ingredients. You’re supposed to use what’s on hand to create something new. But I do like looking and saving recipes that utilize leftovers because it gives me inspiration for the future. Enjoy!

    Love salmon toast! I do this whenever I have leftover salmon and I think I like it better than the actual salmon meal 😛

    1. I dream about having it the next day, so I think I probably like it better too!
