It's 3 days in a sealed container, google gives me 1-2 days or 3-4 days- which is it, will I die if I eat it?

without a doubt it is still ok to eat.

It will last a week in a sealed container and still probably not pose a health hazard for as long as 2 weeks.

plus what HK said you have a sense of smell for a reason.

yea the thing is, salmon smells a little fishy to begin with and it smells a little fishier than usual but not horrible.

3-4 seems like a good bet, and my rule of thumb

did you microwave it?

I reheat in a pan with very light olive oil and it will still taste pretty darn good even a week from the original cooking date.

food generally keeps a lot longer than 'is recommended.' Your nose and tongue will pretty much save you from anything REALLY bad.

We've been scared to death of all things food ever since salmonella popped up. It's really silly.

Yea just enough to get it warm, next time I'll try the pan.
