  3. 1 6- to 7-ounce can boneless, skinless wild Alaskan salmon, drained

Made this last night with Jaden's slow-cooked salmon (http://steamykitchen.com/96-tropical-island-salmon.html) rather than canned salmon, and it was absolutely brilliant. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

yum yum. Also having a duh moment - when I make crispy spicy salmon tacos I cook the taco shells on the top stove. Why didn't I think of the oven with a grill pan
