    i do like to stock up on tinned salmon, but struggling to find a nice tasting one. i tried the princes pacific red salmon, but it's not as tasty as i imagined it would be. john west is usually decent, but are there better quality tinned salmon out there, and where would you recommend?

    yes Jackie - tasteless, We had some yesterday and I felt ill all day.
    mind you there's not much left after draining the water/skin and bones.
    (I'm glad we only bought it when on special offer) xx

    I got some from M and S (own brand) a while back that was really good. Since then Ive bought some from Waitrose that was truly terrible. Own brand and John West. I don't know why theres such a variation in quality...
