    Yes, poaching, de-boneing & freezing would be fine, or you could freeze it uncooked with or without bones too. Undoubtlyit would be easier to bone after poaching though

    Thanks Lillibet,
    I have cooked it in a deep roasting tray in the oven with just enough water to cover it and its turned out great
    Really pleased as it was such a bargain and tastes 'mighty fine'!
    I will de-bone and skin it now and hopefully have enough to freeze and some for tea - if I stop picking and eating it first!!!

    I love fresh salmon trimmongs from Morrisons. I pack is usually enough for 3 meals. I freeze mine raw in smaller packs. When I cook, I usually make soup or pasta with salmon sauce. To make the soup...I boil up some chicken stock (from a cube) and immerse the salmon and leave to simmer for just a few minutes until the salmon flakes off easily. You can get the salm,on off with a fork. Then gently fry an onion in a frying pan...add the chicken stock/ add some diced celery and some herbs ...dill is good but anything except sage or rosemary will do. When the vegetables are cooked add a tin of value sweetcorn, reheat and add the flaked salmon...and this is delicious. If there is plenty of raw salmon you can chop this off and make a tomoato suace using chopped onion, gently fried and add a tin of tomatoes or seeded fresh tomatoes and a little stock, when this is ready add the salmon pieces and when just cooked serve with pasta. I hope this has given you some ideas.

    salmon trimmings

    I've just got some cheap reduced salmon trimmings and wondered if anyone had any suggestions for what I could do with them? I got a slow cooker yesterday so I was thinking of some kind of fish stew but wasn't sure what to put in with them. Any suggestions would be great!

    Cook some rice with a fish stock cube, enough water only to cook the rice and some nice veg eg sweetcorn, chopped peppers, onions etc. - anything that will cook in 10 mins with the rice. About 2 mins before it's ready, add the fish trimmings carefully to the pan, laying them on the rice.

    serve as your version of a fish rissotto or paella - delish!!!!

    Oooh lots of ideas! I might have to get them regularly so that I can try them all out. I think I'll go with the fritata idea, I'm not a good cook and that's nice and easy.

    Thanks everyone!

    I make a kind of smoked salmon pate when I get some. Just chop the salmon finely then stir into cream cheese and season with pepper and lemon juice. Gorgeous on brown bread.

    I bought me and hubby a piece of haddock each, and bought the salmon pieces for the dogs!!
    But when I opened the pack and saw how much was there - wow!
    Me and hubby had salmon and haddock, and some bits left for the dogs.

    Hi princess lou,

    They are great for making a creamy sauce for with pasta. Fry some onion in butter, add some single cream or creme fraiche and dill if you have it and heat through. At the last minute add the salmon trimmings and pour over cooked pasta.

    There's an earlier thread with more ideas that should help so I'll add your post to it to keep the suggestions together.
