The evolution of Stuffed Salmon Shells in Lemon Sauce

I am sure we all have a menu to resort to at the end of  pay period. Mine was making tuna casserole, using noodles, peas and a can of tuna, maybe with a can of mushroom soup. After about 3 months of that recipe, my husband informed me he did not like tuna.  So I switched to salmon patties for awhile. Well,  50 year later, tried salmon patties again.  After a couple of meals, decided best to look for another recipe to use canned salmon.  It was the development of Stuffed Salmon Shells in Lemon Sauce with cheese.

Sweet and Sour Sauce

Condiment:  Sweet and Sour Sauce

Sometimes my refrigerator looks as though all we eat are condiments:  ketchup, mustard, salsas, mayo, chili sauce, and oriental sauce.  Finally I found one oriental Sweet and Sour Sauce to be enjoyed on many dishes:  vegetables, poultry, meats and seafood which is easily made in my own kitchen.  I have a sweet-loving husband who likes to eat everything with sugar” on it.  It seems this sauce satisfies the ‘sweet tooth.’

I do not remember the original source of this Sweet and Sour Sauce, I  first published it with the Oriental Vegetable and Rice Bowl
