I really never liked salmon. It always smells funny and it's so oily. But I know it's very good for you. Starkist now has these packages of tuna in different flavors, in pouches. They have salmon, too. It tastes more like tuna and does not seem oily at all. In this recipe I substituted tuna for half of the salmon, but I doubt it would make much difference if you made the whole thing salmon.
This is from the "All New Cookbook for Diabetics and their Families"
15 1/2 oz. salmon, drained, no bones or skin
2 C. finely chopped peeled potatoes (it's about ONE russet)

Open salmon package and use fork to flake or get rid of large chunks by mashing them smaller. Set aside.
Saute potatoes in margarine in a large skillet 15 min. or until tender. Remove from skillet and set aside.
