I know a lot of people on this forum eat salmon for the anti inflammatory and omega-3 benefits --
A friend of mine recently got me onto canned salmon. It almost tastes exactly like canned tuna and makes for super easy prep.
If you buy it canned with the skin and bones you not only get omega-3, you get calcium.
Get ready for the first time you open a can of salmon with skin and bones -- you open the can and there is the salmon and the skin and bones! It is a bit of a freak out the first time around.
I drain out much of the water that it is packed in and then empty the can into a large bowl, then I use a fork and mix and mash it all up -- then it looks almost exactly like canned tuna. The bones are all soft, so they they just crush right into the fish.
I use it to make a salmon salad - like tuna salad; I put it on top of regular green salads, or I just eat it plain.
It really is a lot like canned tuna, but without the mercury found in the tuna.
Anyone else use canned salmon to get omega-3?
