Leftover Cooked King Salmon

I have several pounds of leftover cooked king salmon. I'm looking for some ideas to use it. Also, do you think I could successfully freeze it?

Maybe salmon cakes? I don't have a recipe but I'm sure you could find one. Also cold salmon is great for lunch. I like to make a sauce of some combo of yogurt and sour cream (all yogurt is fine), with chopped cucumber, salt, a bit of vinegar or lemon, and lots of dill. Use it as a binding agent for shredded salmon.

salmon cakes is a great idea. Also, I've tossed left over salmon in a creamy pasta with mushrooms before and it was pretty good.

I've never frozen cooked salmon - I wonder how that would work out. I do have a salmon cake recipe here:
http://food52.com/recipes..., and the salmon kedgeree recipe on this site looks great! But you'll be eating salmon every day unless you invite some friends or have a huge family.

I also put some on udon or soba noodles with a little miso broth and some greens for lunch.

Or as a top of a green salad ... with mayo and other seasonings in a sandwich (think tuna salad sandwich, goes way upscale!) ... mashed in a dip with light seasonings... sprinkled on top of a fettucini alfredo ... lots of choices! Mmmm... and lovely King, too! Whatever you do, don't throw it out!

how about salmon chowder or salmon corn chowder (especially since fresh corn is still around at farmer's markets) ?

There are quite a few things you can do with already cooked salmon. My grandma used to make salmon patties with canned salmon, some chopped cooked onion,matzo meal and eggs. I've done the same with leftover cooked salmon. YUM! also mix with some chopped celery and scallions, a little mayo, makes for a tasty sandwich.

As well as the above mentioned items.
