  • Mix reserved liquid from salmon and enough milk to make a total of 2 cups together in a measuring cup or bowl.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Generously grease a casserole dish.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir flour into melted butter and cook until dissolved, about 1 minute. Gradually add milk mixture to butter-flour mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened and smooth, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Layer potatoes, salmon, and sauce, alternating 1 or 2 times, into the prepared casserole dish.

  • Whisk mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard together in a bowl; pour over casserole.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling, about 30 minutes.

This was surprising DELICIOUS. The photo doesn't look appetizing but trust me it's a brilliant idea to combine salmon potatoes and a cream sauce. A few things I added to enhance the flavors which were a little garlic and onion powder and a pinch of parsley. I added a good amount of sea salt and black pepper and then a 1/4 cup of crushed butter crackers on top for a bit of crunch. I recommend using red or golden potatoes as they add to the buttery-ness of the whole dish. We all loved this - comfort food indeed. Read More

The only reason I'm giving this 2 stars instead of 1 is because of a mistake I made. The recipe calls for precooking the potatoes & I did not. I make a potatoes au gratin dish that is almost identical to this so I thought I could take a short cut, as that recipe does not require precooking. However, after being in the oven on 375 for 2 hrs, the potatoes still weren't cooked! But the main objection I have to this recipe is that after waiting all that time to eat the dish, it wasn't even good! I don't know if it was the mayo sauce poured over, something is clearly wrong with this recipe. Read More

Flaked fresh salmon instead of canned. Just cook the potatoes until al dente and hit the dish with pepper before you put the parmesan spread on top. Read More

The surprise is that it is actually good. My 22 month old loved it and ate all that I gave her. Your kitchen will smell very fishy afterwords though. Would love to come up with a fresh salmon version. Read More
