Sockeye Salmon Greek Stuffed Pita Pockets

Sockeye Salmon Greek Stuffed Pita Pockets

March 30, 2017

One of our favorite ways to eat wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is in a sandwich.  We use leftover roasted or pan-fried wild caught Sockeye Salmon and turn it into a spread ala tuna salad, or simply place the leftover fillet on toast and nosh it down.

This recipe for Sockeye Salmon Greek Stuffed Pita Pockets is a new twist on an old favorite. It is also great served as a salad on a bed of romaine lettuce. You can use a roasted Sockeye Salmon fillet or canned Sockeye, either is great. We are loving it, and hope you do too!
