I was reading somewhere about the little canned things of salmon, so I picked some up at the store.<br><br>
Now I'm not sure what to do with them...<img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"><br><br>
Can you make some sort of salmon salad sammich, like tuna or chicken? Or should I stash it in my desk to toss on salad?<br><br>
It's chunked, like canned chicken or tuna. I think... I haven't actually opened one yet. I don't eat fish. At all, so I thought I'd try this...

I tried a can once, but I'm kind of a squeamish eater sometimes, and I was turned off by all the little bones that kept turning up. (for some reason they don't bother me when eating "real" salmon). If that kind of thing doesn't bother you, I'm sure they'd be great in a salad with some olives or dried cranberries (not both at once).

I actually just made some salmon "salad" for my lunch tomorrow. I buy it in those bags like tuna comes in. There aren't any little bones to deal with when you buy it that way. I make it just like tuna - chopped onions, celery and mayo. I've used the cans of salmon to make patties - mix it with whatever you'd use to make burgers then throw them on the grill or George Foreman. I went through a salmon patty phase about a year ago.

Salmon Loaf or Patties, Break the canned meat up mix in an egg, crushed cracker crumbs a little milk. Should have the same consistancy as a meat loaf. make it in a loaf, cook it like a meat loaf, or make it into patties and fry them. Make a mustard sauce with prepaired mustard, some pure mustard, milk and flour or corn starch. Pour sauce over loaf or patties and it is truly a tasty treat. The bones are crunchy and tasty.<br><br>

I don't really do salads much, but it was all I could come up with!<br><br>
But a healthy salmon salad sammich might be good. And I like the idea of the cakes/patties thing.<br><br>
Thanks folks!

I can't get past the bones. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br>
I LOVE fresh salmon and make it all the time, but I was feeling nostalgic and remembered my mom making salmon patties when I was growing up, so I called her for the recipe.<br>
I will never forget the horror I felt when I opened up that can. I called my mom and she said not to worry about it, just mix in the bones and stuff. I couldn't. I picked them all out but was so freaked out I couldn't enjoy the patties after that.<br>
I have weird food aversions.

I get the canned sustainably caught wild salmon for my husband. I do pick out the bones with a fork (they're soft so I give them to the dogs -- they love them). Then I mix the salmon in a bowl with the following ingredients for salmon salad sandwiches:<br><br>
1 stalk finely chopped celery<br>
1 large finely chopped celery<br>
1/2 finely chopped apple<br>
1/4 finely chopped red onion<br>
1/3 finely chopped red or orange bell pepper<br>
salt & pepper to taste<br>
honey mustard dressing (I add until it's the right consistency -- doesn't take a lot)

I, too have wondered how I might add canned salmon to my diet and not been sure how to prepare it. I like the soft taco and patty ideas...thanks.<br><br>
As for the bones, I think I've read that canned salmon is a good source of calcium (because of the bones). You think? I suppose if you can't stomach the idea of the bones, it's not a very good source of calcium, though.

are you supposed to eat the bones?<br><br>
and if I buy the kind that comes in a pouch, not can, will it not have bones?<br><br>
I'm a little skeeved out about the prospect of bones when I open the can...

The bigger bones we pick out; softer ones don't even notice.<br><br>
I have an aversion to mayo. Here's a twist on salmon salad. Good in salad or in sammiches:<br><br>
Mash salmon in sesame oil, soya sauce, fresh grated ginger, finely diced green onions, and lime juice.<br><br>
I live on Vancouver Island and order my canned salmon from a fisherman on Salt Spring Island. He delivers it and tuna to my house on the way to the "big" city. Lucky me. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Salmon patties are a lenten favorite in my house. And I'm pretty sure you can buy canned salmon with or without the bones. I know DW's grandmother would alway by the cans with the bones, then manually remove the bones. I think she save $0.02 per can, even though it took her 20 minutes to remove the bones.<br><br>
We also have canned salmon in salmon salad (like tuna salad), on regular salads, salmon casserole (like tuna casserole).<br><br>
Wow, that sounds like we eat a lot of canned salmon. We don't. But we do have it in those various ways. Mostly, we have grilled or broiled fresh salmon.

I've been thinking about the canned salmon since this thread started. Finally opened up a can and am just eating out of the can, about half way thru right now. I love the bones! Larry
