Recipes for Leftover Seafood and Fish
Make in any amount
I seldom have seafood or fish leftover. However, there are times when it happens and I have listed some ideas for using it. Most any fish or seafood that you have leftover can be substituted in the suggested preparations. See the similar and related recipes for some fresh seafood recipes.
- Almost any type of seafood can be used in a salad. Add some mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, perhaps dill or basil and you have another dish. Seafood has a delicate flavor and texture which you do not want to mask, so just a little of the extra ingredients go a long way. Serve as is or in seafood salad sandwiches.
- Leftover salmon makes easy and delicious Salmon Cakes, a slightly different version of the usual patties made with canned salmon.
- Another use for leftover salmon is in sandwiches, such as Salmon Salad Sandwiches or Salmon Sandwiches with Pickled Cucumbers and Dill Sauce.
- Leftover lobster is a rare treat. It makes a delicious salad, as described above or, like salmon, can be used to make Lobster Cakes with Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, served as an elegant appetizer or main dish.
