Salmon Roll with homemade Sunshine Biscuits

This recipe brings me fond memories. My mom would make this all the time. My sister and I loved to take these in our lunch or have them for dinner. It is for sure one of my go-to recipes. If you know of where to get fresh Sockeye Salmon, this recipe is even more incredible. I use canned sockeye salmon, but I most certainly love it when I get my hands on the fresh stuff. Even if you can find canned smoked salmon, this is absolutely incredible and so delicious.

The first thing I like to do is make my salmon roll filling in this you can use whatever you have on hand. I put in my salad celery, green onions, and if I am getting really creative, I even add some grated cheddar or cream cheese the options are endless and totally up to you. I also use mayo, usually Hellman’s. Once I finish my salmon roll filling, I move onto my sunshine biscuits. I call them sunshine biscuits because I love them so much they are nice and flakey and nice and easy to roll out into a big rectangle which is key for fitting all of your salmon roll filling into.
