I recently opened a can of salmon to make salmon cakes (my kids love tuna cakes.... thought I would try salmon) and it was really gross. It had bones and skins and fat....yuck. I threw it out! And it was some fancy "Wildcatch" brand from Whole Foods that wasn't cheap. I did a search on canned salmon in this forum and found another post where someone was talking about making something with canned salmon and she said "leave in the bones and skin". So, I wondered......can you buy canned salmon without skin and bones in the can? I tried to pick out the bones and stuff in the can I bought and there wasn't much left.
