I actually prefer canned salmon to fresh!! I like barley and it works well with the salmon and vinegar. This can be served cold as well. Try it on a picnic instead of potato salad.

This was delish! I used home-smoked canned salmon and the milder rice vinegar ~ num, num, num. Even people who don't eat 'that kinda stuff' were eating 'that kinda stuff'. :)

Hey Tebo, thanks for a great recipe. This oughta keep me going right through the week. Tastes pretty good made as specified, but the flavour improved out of sight when I added just a dash of salt.
