What to serve with a creamed salmon dish?

Creamed salmon is your best bet simply for its dexterity. You can have it as a main course, a side and even as a dessert. Here are some foods you can have with the delicacy.

Cider glazed carrots

Ever tried adding fresh apple cider and maple syrup to your carrots? You will love it. Firstly, roast or steam your carrots ahead of time. However, when you are ready to serve, heat a saute pan with some butter or oil. Once the pan gets hot, add the carrots. After this, add a small amount of apple cider and maple syrup. Finally, toss to coat all of the carrots and cook until the cider starts to evaporate and create a glaze.

Steamed green beans

To make this, you need green beans. Once you have them, steam them in a steamer or a pot of boiling water. Finally, toss with salt and pepper once ready. 

Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are sweet, delicious, and make a great side option for salmon. Also, you don’t need a lot of ingredients to spice it up. Once your potatoes are fully cooked, spice them up with butter, salt and pepper.


Your creamed salmon would also go well with some parfait with toppings.
