I love fresh wild salmon filets (prefer King, not much of a fan of the others), but in my cupboard clean out found a few cans of wild sockeye which I planned to donate to a local food drive, but I guess since it's Mother's Day the thought of my grandmother's salmon cakes popped into my head and pondered if I might actually use them for a great salmon meal. I only had them as a kid and so don't remember too much about them. There are many threads on canned salmon on CHOW but I couldn't find a good thread discussing any flavor difference between fresh and canned. What have your experiences been with fresh vs canned salmon? Is there a big flavor difference?
