"Yum! This recipe was very good. I'm not a huge fan of canned salmon, so I took a few minutes to saute up some fresh salmon fillets and then flaked them with a fork. My whole family (including kids) LOVED it! Also quick and easy."

"I was excited about this recipe until I saw the nutritional information. It's too high in calories and sodium. On the plus side, it is also high in protein."
