Canned salmon can be a great start to a fast and healthy meal. Read on for tasty and budget-wise ideas.
Canned salmon is an inexpensive food. Compare the prices of no-name, store brand and brand-name options. Buy extra when it's on sale.
All types of canned salmon (pink, chum, coho and red sockeye) are healthy choices. Choose canned salmon with the bones so that you get the most calcium. Look for the lower sodium versions.
Canned salmon is already cooked - just drain the liquids, and it's ready to eat or add to your favourite dish. You can remove the skin if you like. Don't throw out the soft, calcium-rich bones! Mash them with a fork and you won't even notice them.
Make salmon salad by adding a little low fat mayonnaise to canned salmon. You can also add finely diced onion.
Kids will have fun helping to make these snacks, which also make great appetizers.
