Bones are good! And they are quite nutritious - all that calcium! I'm so excited about all of these canned salmon recipes, can't wait to try them all.

This was so delicious. Being from the Pacific Northwest, we eat loads of fresh wild salmon & removing the pin bones can be tedious but I bought a can of salmon one day for a salmon loaf & noticed the bones. They were completely different from what I am used to. They are so small & getting them all out was even more tedious from fresh salmon. I used the canned & never once noticed any bones. They are so tiny & fragile they probably baked up & melted. Don't worry about the bones. You won't even notice them. & besides they have lots of protein in them.

The bones in canned salmon are harmless and nutritious. If they freak you out though, it's easy enough to pull apart the salmon and remove the bigger bones (usually connected). They'll slide right off. Don't worry about the small bones. They are so soft, they "crush" when you stir the salmon. I only remove the bones when I am making a pate' UNLESS it is a pate' that I put through the blender. In that case, I leave them in. For hot meals, I almost always leave them in.

Am I missing something, I have bought canned salmon, do you mean to tell me you eat the bones? Like you, my parent didn't cook fish but offered up those fish sticks on Fridays. YUCK.
Thank you, Diane
