Today I’m sharing something I haven’t done in FOR-EV-ER! A leftover makeover!!!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s this: how to use leftovers from one of my previous recipes in a more fun and interesting way. So you don’t have to eat the same meal repeatedly.
As always, this is SUPER fast. Because you don’t want to spend too much time re-vamping leftovers. Seriously… you already invested the time. (Not to mention, this is a leftover salmon recipe, so we’re really going to avoid over-cooking that 😉 )
I’m using last week’s sesame herb crusted salmon, heating it up in a fantastic store-bought Korean barbecue sauce, and we’re making stupid fast tacos. With a light sesame slaw. No measuring, no laboring in the kitchen. Five minutes from start to finish. (If you use leftover salmon, of course.)
If you haven’t tried Trader Joe’s Korean barbecue sauce, I highly recommend it. It’s just stellar.
- leftover herbed salmon
- Trader Joe's Korean barbecue sauce
- shredded Napa cabbage
- small drizzle of toasted sesame oil
- lime juice
- tortillas (I like TJ's handmade tortillas for this because it reminds me of those steamed Korean buns a bit...)
- Combine salmon and barbecue sauce in a skillet over medium heat, just until hot. Turn off and serve right away!
- Toss cabbage with sesame oil, lime juice, and salt to taste.
- Brown your tortillas a bit over an open flame if you like. Then just assemble!
