Would it be weird if I told you I LOVE eating the tender bones in each can of wild sockeye salmon? Traditionally, fresh-packed whole fillets, including skin and tender bones which provide you with an excellent source of calcium and omega-3 fatty acids.
Canned salmon is an easy way to protein to your meals. If I'm in a pinch, I would bring a can to work and add it to my green salad. Or if I'm sick, I would add some salmon to my congee. Because it is easy.
I always buy Wild sockeye salmon caught in Alaska and is MSC certified sustainable.

Can I use canned tuna instead of salmon?
I would not recommend using tuna as a replacement. Tuna has a strong unique flavour that just doesn't quite gel with the other ingredients in this recipe. I like the fattiness that salmon gives. The tuna is much leaner and would create a dry patty.
If you have leftover fresh cooked salmon, this recipe is a great way to use up leftovers. Sometimes, it's worth the extra 10 minutes to roast salmon just for this recipe!
This recipe also goes great with tartar sauce and a sprinkle of dill! It is also very easy to make (especially with the Vitamix blending bowl)!Print
