    Comfort food!!

    Creamed Salmon on Toast!! (In two parts)

    “White Sauce”

    From: “Canadian Fish Recipes”

    Issued by: Department of Fisheries of Canada, Ottawa
    Published by: Edmond Cloutier, C.M.G., O.A., D.S.P.

    1.Thin (for soups)

    1 tablespoon butter
    1 tablespoon flour
    1 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper

    2.Medium (for vegetables and fish)

    2 tablespoon butter
    2 tablespoon flour
    1 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper

    3.Thick (for croquettes)

    3 tablespoon butter
    3 tablespoon flour
    1 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper

    Melt butter in top of double boiler.
    Add flour, mix well and cook one minute. Add milk gradually, stirring constantly until thickened.
    Cook two minutes. Add seasonings.

    Variations of Medium Sauce

    Cheese Sauce: Add 1/2 cup grated, Canadian cheddar cheese.

    Oyster Sauce: Add 1/2 cup chopped, cooked oysters with their liquid.
    1 teaspoon lemon juice may be added.

    Mushroom Sauce: Add 1/2 cup chopped, cooked mushrooms.

    Egg Sauce: Add 1/2 cup chopped, hard cooked egg.

    Celery Sauce: Add 1/4 cup finely chopped, cooked celery.

    Notes from me:

    The milk called for is whole milk.
    A very much easier way of making any version of this sauce is to melt the butter over very low heat. Add the flour and stir until smooth. Raise the temperature to about 1/3 of the dial and cook until the mixture begins to bubble and change colour, about 1 minute. Add the milk, salt and pepper and raise the temperature to about 2/3 of the dial and stir constantly until the sauce boils and thickens.

    A croquette is a fried breaded roll or ball of mashed potato, minced meat, etc.

    The number 2 sauce is the handiest white sauce I know. I use it at Thanksgiving to cream cauliflower or Brussels sprouts. Number 1 sauce makes an excellent base for onion soup.

    “Creamed Salmon on Toast”

    White Sauce Number 2, above.

    1 cup (approx.) canned salmon, (any type) drained
    1 cup cooked peas, corn, green beans, carrots, etc. (or one cup total of any kind of vegetable mixture)
    2 slices of toast, buttered to taste
    Add the salmon and vegetable(s) to the sauce, and heat through.
    Spoon over toast.


    Makes 2 or 3 servings

    Notes from me:

    This works well with canned tuna, too.

    Comfort Food (until my lactose intolerance kicks in, and I have “the runs” or “the trotts”)
    Ice Cream. Chocolate Bars.
    My sweet choice (except the wax they use causes the runs as well) are sweedish fish, fuzzy peach, or Great Valu (Walmart) Gourmet Jelly Beans.

    Macaroni and cheese – with 2/3 sharp cheddar and 1/3 pepper jack. Ah, bliss

    I’m with you Dani. Major comfort in Mac & Cheese. My husband makes it with at least 3 and sometimes 5 different cheeses. Definitely makes my pants shrink in the wash.

    Chocolate is a good comfort food for when I’m depressed, but reading helps me, too.
