Salmon

Recommended Posts

Last night i made some salmon and woke up with some nasty D this morning. Could this mean i could be intolerant to salmon, or could i have gotten glutened by something else.

How was the salmon prepared? What else did you eat and drink?

I just put lemon and my casein and gluten free butter on it, with an baked potato. I drank water and an cranberry juice and malibu drink lol, but i drink those about every other day. And i just wrapped the salmon in foil and put on the grill.

no one else ate the salmon so i dont know if it was just bad fish or not. My hubby did take an bite before he gagged on it lol i know tmi, but he dont like fish.

You need to look at a broader picture. You didn't just have salmon, how was it prepared?

  • Use a spice mix or sauce on it?
  • What pan did you prepare the salmon in (some have continuing reactions to non-stick or cast iron pans that were previously used to prepare gluten)
  • What did you serve with it?
  • Did you prepare the salmon on a wooden cutting board that may have been a sandwich board before Celiac diagnosis?
  • It could be a problem with the fish itself, the freshness of the fish or was the fish artificially colored to the attractive pink color we expect salmon to be? (what was in the artificial color)

And yes, you could have been glutened by something else you ate earlier or it may not be a gluten problem at all. Celiac makes sleuths of us all. Pinning down the problem can be a real challenge.

Ever since catching the flu a few years ago, my ability to taste sour milk has been iffy so my hubby does taste testing for me. Nice hubbys! :-)

I've been eating very few foods for over 2 yrs - gluten-free began over 3.5yrs ago.

I've always been fine w/ salmon & eat it very regularly. But . . .. I DO only eat Wild Alaskan.

I have no idea what's in the colorings for farmed salmon.

I've become familiar w/ the intolerances of a good many ppl on this forum and elsewhere and I can't think of one who's intolerant to salmon.

Ppl have shellfish issues.

Others don't eat any fish because of existing mercury issues.

No salmon issues.

Not that YOU don't, but I mean to illustrate that I believe it's rare.

I don't know what else it could be in that meal if u also have potato regularly.

Wondering whether the Gluten-free Casein-free 'butter' is usually heated that much. Maybe it's related to that.

I can have exVrgn oilive oil, but not if it's heated to a cooking temp.

Another possibility is that the offending food wasn't even consumed that day! I've run into many here who have up to a 3day delay to a glutening.

Do u keep a food diary? It can help tremendously to nail down these tricky situations.

Good Luck!

Well I am still sick, so im sure its not the salmon lol. I was in bed last night at 7 with the heating pad and up at 4 am in pain, so im pretty sure i was glutened somewhere. Im thinking from the pop tarts the kids have been eating all over the house, or maybe one kissed me with crumbs. Or maybe just plain stress from waiting on my moms test yesterday.

I am going to try salmon again next week and see how i react just to ease my mind that it wasnt the salmon. I know the salmon could not get cc'd since it went straight into the foil, and i cut it on the foil and put it on a clean plate. And i did all the touching with clean hands lol
