    Canned salmon is pretty cheap.

    I can't think of any good way to eat it, so can someone please give me an idea?

    Throw some lemon pepper and basil on it, then cook it in some olive oil in a pan.

    Salmon Cakes with Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_36009,00.html

    6 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread
    2 (15-ounce) cans salmon, drained, skin and bones removed
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    5 scallions
    1/2 cup finely chopped canned water chestnuts
    1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
    Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce, recipe follows
    Remove crusts from the bread, break into pieces, and process in a food processor until you get a fine bread crumb. In a large bowl, flake apart the salmon with a fork. Add the egg and mix well. Finely chop 4 of the scallions and add to the bowl. Add the water chestnuts, cilantro, pepper, and the bread crumbs and mix well. Shape the mixture into 12 patties. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 6 patties and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Transfer the cooked patties to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil to the pan, and cook the rest of the salmon cakes, 5 minutes on each side.
    Chop the remaining 1 scallion. Serve salmon cakes with the sauce and garnish with scallion.

    Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce:
    1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt, or 6 tablespoons nonfat Greek-style yogurt
    2 tablespoons mayonnaise
    1 1/2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
    1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce If using regular yogurt place the yogurt in a strainer lined with a paper towel. Put the strainer over a bowl and place in the refrigerator to drain and thicken for 30 minutes.
    Place drained yogurt or Greek-style yogurt into a small bowl. Add mayonnaise, ginger, sesame oil, and soy sauce. Whisk until smooth.
    Yield: about 2/3 cup

    just make it sort of like you would a hamburger. onions, spices, ???, toss on grill or in frying pan (note: I have no idea if they would hold together on the grill)

    oh man, I hate canned salmon, I guess where you live it's probably the easiest way to get it. I'd throw it in some chowder or something and it'd probably be alright. I'll find my recipe...

    My girlfriend mixes an egg into it, presses it into patties, rolls them in some bisquick then fries them up in a pan with a little olive oil. Really not bad at all and super simple.

    season how you want, lemon pepper is good for covering up any fishy taste
