Freeze dried bear lure?

bulk can of freeze dried salmon on sale:

what do to with it, though? it's uncooked, so not very efficient on the fuel consumtion meter, but it's something different for the backcountry. Any meal ideas?

Tacos/burritos but why bother when there are fresh fish to be had (ok winter camping).

Thats rather an odd item. I guess you could mix chopped up salmon with breadcrumbs, dried onions and garlic, and then rehydrate and fry up some salmon cakes. With some soy sauce, it could be pretty good mixed into instant white rice. Lots of good protein there, but how to consume a #10 can full.

well, I hike with two teenagers and wer're usually out there for at least 2 weeks, and we repack the large cans we get from that place. still a lot of salmon. Knowing the consistency of their chicken (pre-cooked, though) I expect the pieces to be small, so it's more like the content of your typical $0.59 can of tuna, in terms of chunk size, which limits the types of meals you can make from it. Salmon tacos maybe. Thing is, I don't bring any of this stuff on the trail without first testing at home and actually liking it there. So we can deplete part of the can at home (or everything goes in the trash. Still a lot of salmon. I don't really like the canned salmon, only fresh. So I guess I'll skip it.

and about the fresh fish up there - my kids like to fish, although we rarely take the time to stop and try catching something. Maybe this year they'll bring the fishing rod along again. They only have 3 summers left before we'd be looking at $250 in out of state licenses for them.
