Open-Faced Salmon Sandwiches

I keep several cans of salmon in my pantry at all times so I never have to worry about drop-in guests. This recipe is so tasty and quick...and it doubles easily for company. —Katnee Cabeceiras, So. Prairie, Washington

    I used canned tuna fish instead of salmon, still very good!

    I rate it 5 stars for taste. I actually turned these into a supper dish, adding a vegetable (Iused fresh green beans) and potatoes and a salad. This is also a less costly way to get the benefits of salmon's omega-3.

    This was delicious! I served on whole wheat English muffins (toasted); served with cole slaw and Mandarin orange slices! Quick and nutritious!

    I would definitely make this recipe again, only NOT when my third son is home as he is deathly allergic to seafood. I do like this recipe though, and it's one the rest of my family will make as many times as we can.

    They look delicious, could you serve on plain Hamburger bun as sandwich or does it have to be Eng. muffin to taste right. I have some buns but not muffins and would use the buns before going to store if they would be just as good. Thanks
