  • Food for Thought

    “Salmon Pea Wiggle”

    This sound like an interesting dish, but I’m having a hard time imagining what it could possibly be.

    • It's been on the menu, on the same day, for 4 years

      It can be an interesting dish, just not from BSM’s cook. It’ll be a gluggy cream sauce (most likely scorched) with overcooked salmon and peas.

      In my 25 year career in cooking, Marie is one of the worst cooks I ever worked with.

  • An Oldie ( maybe not such a goodie)

    Salmon wiggle is salmon and peas in a creamed sauce. I have many not so fond memories of being at my aunt’s house and having to stay at the table until I had eaten all of my “wiggle”. I think that’s the reason I am not a fan of salmon even today. But, I think to some folks it’s considered quite the comforting and delicious meal. Just not this girl…

    • Intriguing

      Are there other wiggles, or is it just salmon?

      • When I was a kid and we would

        When I was a kid and we would have ham for Sunday dinner we could always count on either Monday or Tuesday’s supper being creamed ham and peas. My mother would put chopped up hardboiled eggs in it and we’d have it on toast. For some reason I loved that meal! When I had my own kids I would make creamed ham for them except we had it over rice and 3 of my 4 kids really liked it. I’m not sure why the ham dish tasted so good and the salmon wiggle seemed so gross. My aunt wasn’t a very good cook and the salmon always seemed to fall into clumps of flakes and, of course, the longer it sat on my plate the more it congealed. I can feel my stomach starting to protest at the memory of it.
        To my knowledge salmon was the only variety actually called a “wiggle”. Other similar dishes were simply called “creamed whatever”.
        I wonder if the creamed ham and pea meal would still taste good to me 60 years later.
