I eat salmon and/or tuna 3 times a week...I'm running out of ideas for them.

I also make salmon with a simple white or cheesy Alfredo type of sauce and serve it over drained spinach. The spinach makes a great compliment to the salmon.

It's just something I threw together once, and liked the combo so much that I often make it.

I get the full size cans of salmon in our commodity box often, so I use half for patties and the other half with the white sauce and spinach.

I got two cans this month, so I'll be making these soon.

I know you can eat the bones but I'm afraid too. Won't eat them in sardines either.

I always buy unflavored bread crumbs. If I want seasoning I can always add it myself. Sometimes I make desserts that call for some bread crumbs and seasoning would not work!

My salmon burgers didn't taste half as good as my mother's but I think it's just the memory of my mother's cooking that I can never duplicate. I wish she would have stuck around. She could move in with us and do the cooking to pay her room and board! LOL

Much as I like salmon I don't go for the stuff in tins although I keep a couple of tins in the cupboard for "emergencies". This salmon loaf recipe doesn't appeal at all but I'll keep the salmon burger recipe with the tins in case.

The bones are rendered very soft by the canning process and don't get stuck. In fact they mash into the flesh. They don't taste of anything very much (they taste of the salmon) and they are good for you as they count towards your calcium intake which may be good if you don't get much weight-bearing exercise or have a balanced diet or are on long-term proton pump inhibitors (for GERD, reflux, etc)

My mother used to make creamed salmon and peas over mashed potatoes. A favorite of mine. She would pick out all the skin, but mash the bones. It also used to be a tradition that this dish was always made on July 4th. I have no idea why. She also made creamed salted cod fish.

I have often wondered how out mothers would have prepared a favorite dish of ours if they had all the conveniences we now have. Would my mother have picked out all those bones and whizzed them in the small FP instead of mashing them by hand with her favorite kitchen fork? How many of our foods would have been made out on the grill. Salmon cakes grilled? Now that sounds interesting.

The little round bones in my salmon were hard. I never thought of putting them in a FP so I could mix them back in with the salmon. One time I bought a can of salmon that was already skinned and deboned. They did everything but eat it for me. LOL I think they would definately fall through the grates of a grill.

I was thinking of putting them on a basket for veggies.
