    My kids love this and often ask for it. You could always trade the salmon for chicken or ham. You could use canned meats (salmon, tuna, chicken, turkey) but the flavor is best when you use fresh.

    Hmmm. I'd love to try this with my kids. I bet they won't like it though - they don't like anything new. But might be worth a shot as it looks delicious and wholesome.
