I really like a fresh made "cream sauce" instead of the common practice of using a Campbells cream soup....so here is a from scratch salmon wiggle....tuna works well also.

Salmon Pea Wiggle:

15 ounces salmon, canned
15 ounces canned peas, baby (or frozen ones are nice)
4 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Clean skin and bones from salmon and drain juice - feed to cat.

2. Drain peas, reserving 1/4 cup of liquid

3. Melt butter in 2 quart saucepan, add salt and pepper, stir in flour.

4. Add reserved peas liquid, stirring quickly.

5. Add milk slowly, whisking it in.

6. Simmer until the wiggle thickens.

7. Add the salmon and peas, heat thoroughly.

8. Serve over crushed saltine crackers, or a patty shell, or toast.

I just can't do the vegetables in cream sauce thing. I realize it's greatly popular comfort food, but no, can't do it.

I'm with you too. No can do, either.

Too many bad memories of shady mystery meat and vegetables served up in the elementary school lunch room.

I don't much care for anything in cream sauces. My Mum made so many of those type of things. Creamed onions, creamed tuna, salmon, peas, finnan haddie, chowders, creamed chipped beef. I do like chowders now, particulalrly home made but the veggies? Blaehck!

I have a recipe for that around here somewhere (yeah, I collect old offbeat recipes... I even can make soda crackers, graham crackers and corn tortillas, though I am sure the latter isn't exactly Old Time Maine comfort food! LOL

I do like scalloped potatoes. I guess potatoes are the exception to the cream sauce thing. And just plain scallops are great , too! Oh, no cream sauce on the scallops, please.

Yes! Very good! I just happen to have about 100 pounds of chef's potatoes and some cheese! Maybe I don't need the whole 100 pounds.
