Have you ever heard of canned salmon? It’s similar to canned tuna, just not as bland. Plus, you can graduate from the canned variety to real, fresh, and delicious salmon to spice up your dinner. Seafood can be healthy and an awesome way to get away from the meat-based dishes you cook every week. Let’s find out more!
Salmon Slaw Burgers
Burger lovers everywhere probably doubt that a burger can be made with anything besides beef or black beans. In fact, you can do it with salmon too! Herbs and garlic powder add an extra kick of flavor, and the patty is nice and crispy. Put in on a bun, some sandwiches, or with cabbage slaw.
Mediterranean Couscous Salad
Another idea is to give salad a shot. Seafood is popular all over the world, and the Mediterranean is no exception. Make the salad and throw in herbs, tomatoes, and olives for a light lunch perfect for warmer days.
Brain Power Salad
Here’s another salad variant that can power you up for a long day of work even if you are working from home. Salmon provides the protein, while the dish also includes avocado, feta cheese, blueberries, spinach, and even chia seeds. Although you should use smoked salmon, almost any salmon variety will do!
Black Bean Burritos
Go south of the border with a Tex-Mex-inspired burrito dish loaded with black beans and seafood. You’ve heard of fish tacos, and this goes to the next level. Just add more cheese and sauce to get something easy to make and magical to taste.
If you love crab cakes, then you already have an idea of what savory cakes look and taste like. Now try using salmon instead! Sweet potatoes, crunchy veggies, and a smooth dressing make this a party for your taste buds.
Looking to do breakfast for dinner? That’s where scrambled eggs enter the picture. You can use leftover roasted or grilled salmon from last night’s dinner in a completely new and refreshing way; just add grapefruit, herbs, and yogurt!
You’ve probably just made tater tot casserole, which makes an awesome comfort food. A seafood salad can be just as scrumptious. Cheese and frozen veggies fill out this casserole, and you won’t need to rely on ground beef yet again and try something new for a change.
