Canned Salmon

1 t Ketchup

1 t Veg or Canola Oil

1/4 t Canning Salt

Pint size canning jars

Prepare jars as you would for canning, (boiling lids, etc.) Cube up salmon (no need to remove bones as they will dissolve and also adds protein if you leave them in). Pack salmon in jars tightly. Add ketchup, oil, salt on top of salmon in jars. Screw lids and rings on jars and place in pressure cooker 10#'s pressure for 90 minutes.

Great recipe to use for your larger salmon fillets. Use canned salmon on salads, plain with crackers, mix with mayo, onions, celery, salt and pepper and have on crackers also. Basically, any way that you use canned tuna, just use this instead. ENJOY!!!!
