Yesterday's Lunch - Salmon Artichoke Pasta Salad - FBC style on 07/28/2009 10:51:10 MDT Print View

I test some of my FBC meals at work for lunches sometimes... this is yesterday's.

Salmon Artichoke Pasta Salad
Serves 1

Success! I think next time I make this I will top it with Parmesan cheese. Yum.

1/2 cup cooked and dehydrated pasta (I used mini farfalle)
3 T dehydrated artichoke hearts
1 T dried mixed vegetables
1 t dried dill
1 packet True Lemon (or more to taste)
1 3 ounce pouch wild salmon
salt, pepper, olive oil to taste

At home: Combine all of the ingredients in a zip lock freezer bag.

In camp: Add water to cover. Allow to sit for 10 minutes or until the noodles are rehydrated. Stir in the salmon. Season with salt, pepper and olive oil and enjoy.

Where did you find dehydrated artichoke hearts. I can think of lots of uses for these.
Thanks,
Mike

Sorry, I should have mentioned that! I dried them myself at home...

The pasta is also cooked and dried (makes it "instant")

Mike... sometimes they come packed in oil. Those ones should be rinsed and drained. Usually I can find the water packed ones and they don't need to be rinsed.

We use them on the trail in a crab and artichoke dip...

I know the pot I used isn't exactly UL but it sure was worth it (plus there are 3 of us sharing).

Trader Joe's carries water packed hearts in cans, near the olives. Quite cheap as well.

Michael,

Next time you're in the area, stock up! I cannot rave enough about TJ's for hiker food... And things to dehydrate.

The artichoke hearts are $1.99/can and come packed in water. I also buy jars of roasted red/yellow bell peppers $1.99 and dry them.

Lots of ready-to-eat, trail friendly foods too. I love the beluga lentils and various rices.

Trader Joe's is definitely a gold mine for outdoor's cooking.

I've just finished 3 weeks of dehydrating for a canoe trip to northern Manitoba. My latest T.J.'s find is frozen roasted onions, red, gold, & green peppers. Dehydrated they are great on pizza, w/ packets of Chinese sauce, & with fresh fish.

I leave tomorrow early.. :-)
