Creamed SAlmon and Biscuits

after church i wanted to make something easy for lunch. upon looking in my fridge i found canned biscuits, frozen salmon, and frozen peas. creamed salmon over biscuits was meant to be.

3 tbs butter
3 tbs flour
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp dill, if you want
1/2 cup peas, or more or none if you want
1 lb salmon, i poached mine, you could grill it or saute it, the flavor will be different

In a saucepan or skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour, stirring constantly, until a smooth paste is formed. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly, until a smooth thick gravy is formed. You can add more or less milk depending on the thickness you like of the sauce.
Flake salmon into a bowl, breaking apart any large pieces. Stir salmon and peas into the sauce carefully with a wooden spoon to avoid mashing the peas. Cook until heated through. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and dill. it might have added lemon if i had it.

i made the biscuits following the directions on the can. and poured the creamed salmon over the biscuits. easy peasy and yummy!
