What is everyones opinion on canned salmon as opposed to canned tuna? Salmon seems to have just as much, if not more protein, and lots of good oils that tuna seems to not have so much of.

What do you think?

if your talking fresh, its tastey!

If your talking canned, well lets just say its comparible to canned tuna

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isnt canned salmon higher in cals? I've never tried canned salmon. A baked salmon steak is delicious though, just had it for dinner tonight. But if you're going for lower cals, I think tuna would be the fish of the day. :)
I really doubt that this is a concern for you though.

Tinned salmon is nasty.

Get fresh salmon steaks [round here 130g = 1.50 squids which = about $2.50-$3]

Ask Gino how to cook them best.

Salmon has good fat in it too.

I never had canned salmon before.

As for the filets - Bake for 20 minutes @ 400 degrees. I like lemon pepper seasoning on mine.

canned salmon has those freaky bones in it.....if you want oils as well, you could always try sardines(in olive oil, not soy), but i'd say stick with tuna, or get fresh salmon....

grab the fresh smoked salmon at food 4 less its like
4.00 bucks for a pretty good size fillet about six servings
each serving from the bag has

cals = 90
pro= 18
carbs = 0
fat = 4
sodium = 114

and it tasts a hell of alot better then tuna in the can
not to dis tuna it is great food but I realy hate the taste
after a few days.

P.S
look out for bones

Funny you should mention this...I'm making salmon burgers for dinner tonight, from canned salmon.

Mix up canned salmon w/egg white, a little breadcrumbs, garlic/salt/pepper, and chopped green onion. Form into patties and brown in a skillet...yum!

Where I live, salmon is like five or six bucks/lb. but a 16 oz. can of salmon is about a dollar. It makes a good cheap meal...got to stick to the GD budget :(

salmon has higher amounts of omega-3 oils but apart from that nutritional there is not much difference between the two. I eat lots of smoked slamon and tuna. sometine poached salmon as well.

So what your saying is that the price of beans in China is relatively low?

Here's what you do with canned salmon. Mix it with some pesto and olive oil throw it in a pita with some spinach and tomato and you have yourself a delicious high protein meal balanced meal.

What about canned crabmeat? Is that good for anything?

Saltrock

Canned crabmeat is good too

far better flavour than the tuna, but on par with the salmon.

The 80s will not come back. Ever.

There's an 80s hair band concert not far from me this weekend and some girl who I work with is going. She was so happy. Then I told her I was going to the Deftones/Godsmack concert thursday, and she was like "who's that?" 80s people really do live in caves.

ha ha..does she have feathered hair?

there's a lady like that at my gym..we call her "livin on a prayer" and she looks like she hasn't looked in a mirror since 1986. Feathered hair, frosted makeup, cameltoe..the whole 9 yards....

I picked up a can of salmon from a whole foods type store and fed it to my cat, I took the bones out first though and cut it up w/ a fork on a plate for her. Out of all the fishes that I have fed her she likes the salmon the LEAST and it was also the most expensive. Her favorite is mackerol in the lil sardine type can. Bumblebee solid albacore tuna 'gold can' is also one of her favs but I wont feed that to her anymore since I noticed it has some kind of preservative in it. what's the point? well I wont feed this cat any of that fancy feast crap and I'll tell you she looooves fish and she's got the softest coat ever, i only get her organic dry food. Mackerol, go w/ the mack!

idk about you guys but i get my tuna "in the bag" instead of the can...i just like the way it tastes better. But i got a bag of salmon one day, and i really liked it, i thought that it tasted great!

i'd choose tuna and salmon sashimi any day over canned stuff but they're just too expensive *sigh*

Nobody ain't talking about those great sardines! I buy those canned in water, they don't taste too bad and over here they are cheaper than any other fish, except when tuna is on a special reduced price. Tuna's weakpoint is that it doesn't have as much omega 3 as salmon, sardines or herrings. I like healthy fats.
