Princes Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon Toasted Sandwiches

Princes sent the Scottish Mum household a box of Alaskan salmon with the request to create our own recipe and report back.

They also kindly sent us a lovely salmon recipes book, and a couple of our tins of Wild Pink Salmon are going to be made into salmon fish cakes as the recipe in the book looks so absolutely and deliciously tasty.   Having salmon in a can is handy for those meals where the kitchen cupboard is looking a little bare and we struggle for something good, nutritious and filling to feed our families.

Inspired by the Wild Alaskan Salmon French Toast Sandwiches in the recipe book, I went to work.


Princes Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon Toasted Sandwiches

Lesley Smith
Serve as a snack, or a main meal. I use a panini press, but you could use a regular sandwich maker, or make them under the grill.
Servings 6


  • 2 x 213g can pink wild Alaska salmon
  • 4 heaped tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 12 slices bread
  • butter
  • salt and pepper
  • lettuce
  • cherry tomatoes
  • coleslaw


  • Drain the can of wild Alaskan salmon.
  • I removed skin and bones from the can as I know my kids won't eat these, but you can choose to keep them in.
  • Mash the salmon and add the mayonnaise. Use a fork to mix the mayonnaise thoroughly with the salmon.
  • Add a pinch of salt and pepper and mix that in gently.
  • Lay out bread for making the sandwiches. I butter on one side only.
  • Spread the salmon and mayonnaise mix on the buttered side of the bread, and top with lettuce and sliced cherry tomatoes.
  • Place the top piece of bread on and put in the panini press to cook.
  • After approximately 4 - 5 minutes, or when the bread is a lovely golden colour, remove from panini press, slice, and serve with cherry tomatoes and coleslaw on the side.

Princes Breakfast Box Giveaway – Closes 15th October

If you are part of the blogger circuit, you may have seen the posts with the hastag #princesbrekkie.   It is all about eating healthier, and making breakfast part of our five a day.  Princes chose some families and sent us a box full of goodies.

In the box was a USB stick with some recipes that we could use with the tins of fruit that we had received.    Princes recipes have lots of ideas for what we can do to reach our five-a-day.  Fruit and vegetables are thought to be one of the best sources of vitamins, minerals and fibre, helping us all to stay healthy.

We chose to make the peach muffins but we doubled the recipe and added pears as well.  In the picture the muffins look burned, but they really were not.  Sadly there are none left to retake another one to show off to you, as they were demolished by the boys very quickly.

We also made the peach and orange smoothie but again, doubled the recipe and as I had used the peaches in the muffins, we made the smoothie with pineapple and fruit cocktail.  We were planning having muffins and smoothie for breakfast the next morning and I was about to put the smoothie in the fridge, but the boys over ruled me, and it was eaten for Sunday tea.   They loved the new place mats and we had the candle burning well into the night.  Thank you Princes, we had a lovely afternoon making new things.


I have teamed up with Princes to offer you one of these breakfast boxes to help you take the stress out of the morning routine.

 Princes prides itself on offering good value, great quality food that the family can enjoy. From canned fruit for your cereal to pure fruit juices for a refreshing morning drink, pack your cupboards with these trusty Princes products and you can whip up a healthy, delicious breakfast in minutes.

The Princes breakfast box includes a set of six bowls and six tumblers, table placemats, an alarm clock, a colouring book to entertain the kids, a relaxing candle for the mums, money-off coupons and, of course, a range of Princes canned fruit – including grapefruit segments, peach slices, pear halves, fruit cocktail, pineapple chunks and mandarin segments – and Princes pure juices.
