This is a classic and frugal recipe. Canned salmon may be more expensive than tuna fish, but it is still a relatively inexpensive source of protein. And with all the buzz in the health community about omega 3‘s being good for you, salmon is an even better choice. Leave the bones in* and you’ve added calcium as well!
I personally like to use canned tuna and salmon to try to meet my goal of having one fish meal a week. Some weeks I’m more successful than others.

*The bones are very soft from the canning and totally edible. As a matter of fact they are a very good source of calcium.
