    Seems to ime the calorie count for this is WAY too high. Salmon is about 30 calories an ounce. They have us eating a full 16 ounces in the calculation!! In the old days I probably cound have eaten that much but not now! Salmon was great though! I added dried onion to the poaching liquid. - 8/25/10

    I don't think the servings were set right, that is why the calorie count is so high. Divide it by 6(the amount of servings ) and it seems more realistic. - 1/4/11
