Salmon Spirals - 1

Salmon Spirals from “Looneyspoons”

Don’t quote me, but I think this recipe came from the cookbook “Looneyspoons”.  It is an excellent cookbook for heart patients as I recall.  And there is a sequel to it as well.

I’ve never tried this recipe gluten free.  The biscuit dough has to have a certain cohesion to roll out and wrap around the ingredients.  It is fluffy and light when baked.  I serve this with vegetables, like steamed broccoli, and a homemade hot mustard sauce. 🙂

Salmon Spirals
Makes 12 (serves 6)

2 cans salmon, drained, flaked
1/2 c. carrot, peeled and grated
1/2 c. celery, finely chopped
1/2 c. green onions, chopped
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. low fat sour cream
1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 c. white flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne
2 Tbsp. canola oil
7 oz. skim milk

Grate carrot.  Chop celery and green onions.  Open salmon and flake.  Combine salmon, carrots, celery, and green onions.

In a small bowl combine lemon juice, sour cream, vinegar, mustard and pepper.  Stir till smooth.

Add sour cream mixture to salmon and set aside.

In a large bowl mix biscuit dry ingredients.  Put canola oil in measuring cup and add milk to make 1 cup.  Add to dry ingredients.  Knead 10 times.

Roll out on floured surface till at least 12″x 12″ and 1/2″ thick.  Spread salmon mixture on dough.  Roll like a jelly roll, pinching seams shut.

Cut into 12 slices 1″ thick using a serrated knife.  Spray oil on baking sheet.  Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes.

Hot Mustard Sauce
Recipe modified from “Scandinavian Cooking” by Beatrice Ojankanga.  And if anyone knows where I can buy a new copy, let me know.  Mine is in pieces!  This recipe makes about 1 cup of sauce.

3 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. dry mustard
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. ground white pepper
1/4 c. white sugar
1/8 tsp. ground cardamom (a must!)
1/2 c. olive oil

In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustards, salt, white pepper, sugar and cardamom. Gradually add oil and whisk till sauce is thick.

Pour a tablespoon or two over the Salmon Spirals.  Very spicy.  But nice with the sugar in it. 🙂

Enjoy! 🙂
