Canned salmon is the delicious alternative to your standard canned albacore tuna. For some reason, most people do not consider adding some of this scrumptious fish to their work-week lunches, assuming that it is going to be too expensive for their budgets. Or maybe they are simply afraid to try something that is so new and different from what they are used to, preferring to stick with the tried and true favorites. Or maybe they simply did not know that such an option existed, and now that they have heard of it they are excited to try some canned salmon!
One of the greatest things about canned salmon is the diversity with which it can be prepared. Anything that you can do with canned tuna you can do with salmon. The main difference is that salmon is such a flavorful fish that you might not find yourself needing to enhance its flavor as much as people often do with tuna. Instead of adding mayonnaise, celery, and a variety of spices, a little bit of vinegar and some freshly ground pepper might actually suffice for a salmon salad sandwich. If you really are missing that creamy texture, you might consider trying something like a little bit of plain yogurt, so that you can get that yummy consistency without overpowering the flavor of the fish. Now just pair the salmon mix with a good rye bread, a slice of tomato, and a piece of lettuce, and you have a delicious workday lunch.
Canned salmon also makes a great addition to any salad that you might want to make. Try it with chopped spinach leaves, walnuts, feta cheese, and raisins. You will never want to go back to a chicken Caesar salad again! WhatA s even better is that with canned salmon, you can wait to put the fish on the greens part of the salad until you actually get to work, as long as you have access to a can opener. This way your salad does not get soggy, which can be a pet peeve of many people who try to bring salads to lunch. Who knew health could taste so good?
