Educate yourself about salmon first.

The recipe calls for wild Alaska salmon. That is a good start. But the best sandwich will only be had with sockeye salmon. I am from wild Alaska salmon country and there is a world of difference between spring, chum, coho, etc. and sockeye. It costs more, but it tastes far better and usually has the best consistency. Treat yourself.


Really delicious and a great way to eat canned salmon.

Fast, healthy, yummy, fresh

I've been hearing a lot of good things about salmon recently in terms of health benefits. Unfortunately, I've never really cared for salmon, but I actually liked this sandwich. It didn't taste too salmony at all. It tasted more like a tuna sandwich to me. As a 17 year old with little to no cooking experience, this recipe was so easy and nearly impossible to mess up. I made it all by myself! My mother was impressed. I used regular whole wheat instead of pumpernickel. We loved it.

Easy to make, tasty, healthy
love it!

I am not one to eat canned meat... but I got some canned salmon that was on discount. searched the web for a good recipe to try and this one stood out... no mayo... or alot of fat. Love it... I could use a bit more lemon and a little bit of salt but it is really good! I was concerned but it is rather surprising I want to go back to the store and buy more! red pepper flakes would be good in this too for just a bit of pop. so yummy!! should of taken a pic... but didn't now it is gone... ;)

the lemon gives it a nice tang

I enjoyed this meal for its ease and nutrition. I find salmon from packets is quite a challenge to flavor. I used 2- 5oz salmon packets and when I added the seasoning measurements as written I tasted only salmon. I used almost a 1/4 cup of lemon juice and still barely tasted it. The extra lemon juice created extra-runny salmon salad, which resulted in soggy bread.
