Creamed Salmon on Egg Noodles

This recipe has been in my family since I was a child. I haven’t had it in awhile, so I made some up. I still love it. I thought I’d break it down to see just how healthy it was. Turns out, it’s pretty reasonable. By the way, the recipe nutrients are based on the noodles but if you don’t want the noodles, try whole wheat toast. It’s just as yummy. Enjoy!

Serves 4


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1-2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 7¾ oz can of salmon, red sockeye, prepared (remove skin and bones)
  • 1¼ cups frozen peas

  1. Melt butter
  2. Mix flour into the melted butter
  3. Slowly add milk and stir until thick
  4. Add in the salmon and peas
  5. Let simmer until hot, stirring constantly. Don’t allow it to boil over
  6. Serve over egg noodles
