Tuesday’s Recipe: Salmon Pizzas

July 29, 2014

I seem to be good for about 3 miles of running before the cramps set in these days. Starting out this morning on my run, I felt awesome! Everything was clicking away and feeling good for the first 2 – 2.5 miles. I had planned to do a 20 minute tempo run, but 12 minutes into it, I started to get some cramps in my lower abdomen. I ended up walk/running the last 2 miles, which was a bummer. BUT at least I am running more than I had been.


Craig came home for lunch, so I made salmon pizzas for him. He has been using My Fitness Pal to track his food intake, and since using it, he has realized he has a hard time getting enough protein in his diet. We always have an abundance of salmon, and it is a good, lean protein, so that’s what was on the menu today.


I whipped up these salmon pizzas in no time and they tasted really good. The recipe is actually from my mother-in-law, which she made often for Craig and his brother when they were growing up.

Salmon Pizzas

Servings: 4


4 English muffins, split in half

16 oz. cooked salmon

1/3 cup mayo

1/2 onion, diced

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1 Tablespoon Tabasco (more or less to taste)

1 teaspoon ground mustard

salt and pepper


1. Toast English muffins in toaster or under broiler.

2. Combine remaining ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix until incorporated.

3. Spread mixture on top of toasted English muffins.

4. Place under broiler until heated through and slightly browned. (Approximately 3-5 minutes.)

After lunch I took Sadie on a walk around the neighborhood. She was huffing and puffing when we got back and proceeded to sprawl out on the cool hardwood floors afterwards.
