When you go out and do your food shopping every week, you are continually faced with a number of choices. Do you buy fresh only and start the time clock on your week’s food or do you buy packaged and compromise on nutrition? It’s never easy to be in charge of meals, especially if you have a big family. Ideally, you would be able to get a mix of both fresh and packaged items and work them both in over the course of a week’s lunches and dinners. Here are 3 recipe ideas for Alaska Canned Salmon, a nutritious and tasty source of protein available in packaged form.
Caesar Salad with Salmon: Preparing salads has gotten tricky since most lettuces have been identified as basically devoid of nutritional qualities. At the same time, they help digestion and general circulation. The Caesar Salad with Salmon will turn an ordinary head of lettuce into a base for enjoying one of nature’s most nutritional foods – Alaska Salmon. Take the canned salmon and add it in chunk form to a simple tossed salad. Preparation will take only 5 minutes and it can be served as a meal in itself, with olive oil and vinegar as your dressing.
Penne Rigate with Salmon: Is your family missing meals at their favorite Italian restaurant? While it may not always be prudent to dine out when you are faced with a budget crunch, you can duplicate the classic dishes at home in minutes. Penne Rigate with Salmon relies on adding just the right amount of cream to your sauce. If you want to trim down the fat content, use only a little bit of cream in a sauce of olive oil, sautéed garlic, salt and pepper. Add your salmon and keep warm. Penne Rigate will work well, as the pasta is about the size of small Alaska Canned Salmon chunks.
Salmon Stir Fry: Finally, to wow your family when it appears like there is nothing left in your refrigerator, try the salmon stir fry. Sauté some olive oil, onions and garlic, then add your Alaska Canned Salmon with green peppers and mushrooms. Prepare enough rice for each person and serve this ten-minute meal to the delight of everyone at the table.
