So it was my night to cook dinner last night.

And this happened.

When my mom showed me a recipe and told me to start making it, I honestly had no idea what it was (there was no picture), or what it was suppose to look/taste like.

I was also really worried I would mess it up. Because apparently my grandmother used to make this for my mom. Let’s just say I was worried outta my mind the whole time that I was going to totally botch this recipe.

Then something miraculous happened. I started to put the ingredients together in a bowl and the smells of salmon, cottage cheese, and Worcestershire sauce melded together into something amazing. And I suddenly realized—Wait a minute, I’ve eaten this stuff before!

Turns out my mom made this same exact dish a little over a year ago for us. And I HATED it! Apparently, I refused to eat it because she left the salmon bones in the casserole (which is actually super healthy for you). Those were the days when I wouldn’t go anywhere near a chia seed, drink water kefir, or eat fish bones. 

But, as funny as it is, when I made the Salmon Noodle Romanoff, I LOVED it! What a coinky-dink! And I ate it—salmon bones and all!

    I have always wanted to try a recipe like this with fish and noodles, but have been afraid because I thought it was a weird combo. But, this looks delish!

    It looks so delicious! I had no idea you could eat the salmon bones. Still don’t think I could do it, though lol. I’ve got some cans of salmon on hand right now that are just begging to be turned into this! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, it will be featured in tonight’s What’d You Do This Weekend! Pinned :-)

    This is one of my favorite meals. The flavor combination is delightful. Glad to see this recipe without the mayonnaise as it is not needed yet many add that and bread crumbs which I prefer not too. This is a surprisingly rich flavorful way to enhance canned salmon. A definite comfort food item. Good recipe, thanks.

    Put this together a couple of weeks ago and stored it in the freezer. We had it for dinner last and all immensely enjoyed it. The bones were not noticable. This is easy to make, freeze and heat, we will be having it again. Thank you for this recipe!
