You again! :yikes: Just kidding! Salmon sounds like it would be good. I have to admit I've never eaten canned salmon (never had the nerve) but I can imagine a filet flaked up and in it. Spicy salmon would be good, also. There is a recipe somewhere around here that has a chipotle pepper glaze on it that gives me an idea (It also has sugar, though) and I bet that some salmon broiled with peppers or hot sauce would be great in this. A nice spicy spread!
