Canned salmon - salmon cakes?

I have two 8 oz cans of canned Chinook that I'd like to use up - they were canned by my fishmonger, and while I haven't had them before, if they're anything like the other offerings they should be pretty high quality.
I was figuring that the best way to use them would be in salmon cakes (unless you have another project I could try). What's your favorite recipe?
i just mix the salmon with enough mayo to hold together. a few drops of tabasco, s & p. chill the formed cakes in the fridge about 30 minutes then fry.
The cakes will be good, but I wonder if this salmon might not be good enough to use elsewhere, like in a simple salmon salad. Do you know if it has skin and bones as in commercially-produced canned salmon?
This is mandatory at all family get togethers and holidays. Sooo good.
