Salmon Christmas crackers recipe

Prince Rupert retired fisherman Norman Ostrom shares his favourite holiday recipe

One of Norman Ostrom’s favourite Christmas traditions is making salmon crackers. Before he retired in 2016, Ostrom was a fisherman for more than 60 years. In other words, you’ll want to make this recipe for years to come.

Here is his process:

1. Catch (or buy) salmon

2. Freeze until winter

3. Thaw, then salt for five days

4. Fillet and cut into small pieces

5. Put in a crockpot and add pickling ingredients, onions, vinegar, etc.

6. Stir every two days

7. Enjoy with your favourite crackers and garnish — share if you can! It is the season of giving, after all.
