I opened a can of salmon, and then like a silly head I thawed out some froen salmon for dinner tonight, and it's just going to be too much salmon for one week.  Can I freeze my canned salmon?  I've heard you shouldn't freeze and then refreeze fish.  Or, maybe I could cook the frozen salmon and freeze it.  But that would be more of a shame I think.  It looks really good.

What do you guys think?

Thanks for your help!!!!!!!!!

I often cook salmon and then freeze it so that all i have to do later is heat it up.  I've also frozen canned salmon as well.  My grandma has put the entire can in the freezer before - just don't do that!

I'd pop the canned salmon in the freezer to cook another week. I'd suggest transfering to an appropriate freezer container first though.

I wouldn't freeze the canned salmon but it's just a inkling not backed by science

It's in oil isn't it, why not put it into a glass container and top up with oil. and keep in the fridge for a short time.

if it's in brine or something else perhaps you could vacuum pack it assuming histamine isn't a big issue.

In my experience, fish goes bad within about 3 days in the fridge, and even one day later it's not smelling as good as it did immediately. The salmon oil especially goes rancid kind of fast.

I wouldn't leave it in the fridge if you won't be eating it right away. Freezing might change the texture (I'm not sure, as we always seem to finish the cans fast enough so i don't need to freeze) but it should still be fine to use in cooking.

Another idea is to make the canned salmon into salmon patties and then freeze the patties.

I agree with Ruth. The patties precooked and frozen in individual packages make for easy lunches.

Chloe, that one was tops!

Thanks everyone for your responses!!  I put the canned in the freezer and will make something out of it later.  No it was in water, not oil.  I'll eat the stuff I cooked up today probably.
