Creamed Salmon on Biscuits
One of my favorite meals of all times. This is pure comfort food for me, and is so super easy to make!
Make a roux (basic butter and flour mix). For liquid use any combination of cream, milk, half & half, or chicken stock. For this recipe I used 1/4 c. cream (leftover in fridge so using it up), part milk, and half a can of chicken broth (again, already open in fridge and using it up). Add sauteed celery and onion (1/4c. each), salt, pepper, and marjoram. Let cook for a few minutes on low then add 1 can salmon (I used smoked salmon I got from my brother), about 1 1/2 cups. Let simmer for about 20 minutes. Pour over homemade (or store-bought) biscuits. I use Bisquick brand baking mix for mine. Canned or frozen peas would be great in this recipe, but I'm the only in my family who likes them so I leave them out. It's helpful to make extra biscuits so the kids can have some with butter and honey.
