Ingredients & substitutions

  • Salmon – I buy a side of salmon, cut the skin off and cut it into 3rds. I freeze 2/3 of the salmon and cut the remaining 3rd into 3 filets. I like to buy the side of salmon because it’s cheaper by volume and it freezes nicely.
  • Mayonnaise – I prefer to use Hellman’s Olive Oil Mayonnaise. But use your favorite!
  • Parmesan – I used shaved Parmesan, because as the Parmesan melts, it creates these wonderful little pockets of salty, melty cheese.
  • Everything but the bagel seasoning
