Although fish snobs may look askance at canned salmon, experts agree that it’s a fine choice. In a recent NYTimes article discussing the nutritional aspects of canned fish, Kristin Kirkpatrick, a registered dietitian and manager of nutrition services at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute raved about canned wild salmon:
“Bottom line,” Ms. Kirkpatrick said, “it’s important to get your omega-3s, and one of the easiest and most affordable ways to do that is to go canned. You won’t be skimping on nutrition.”
Since canned salmon is already cooked it’s super easy to use. If you’re not feeling inspired, buy a jar of pre-made Alfredo sauce (we like Newman’s Own w/garlic), add a can of salmon and a box of cooked pasta and presto! Dinner for 4 to 6, depending on how hungry you are.
If you’re looking for a more in-depth preparation, search out some salmon cake recipes, or try a breakfast hash or salmon loaf!
