  • Canned Salmon

    Anyone know anything about it? I'm certain it wont have the same great nutritional benefits of wild salmon, but Im thinking it could be a good, quick, high protein afternoon snack when mixed with coleslaw, mayo, cracked pepper, etc.

    Thoughts?

    I think that would be healthy. I personally love canned salmon (but I live in Alaska and can it myself)
    Especially if you make your own mayo:
    1 egg yolk
    3/4 -1 cup olive oil
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    dijon mustard/garlic/pepper/salt/whatever you like to taste

    Blend the egg yolk and lemon juice with a blender or a hand mixer then in a SMALL stream
    add a tiny bit of oil at a time until it is totally emulsified. It's super satisfying and has TONS
    of yummy fat
    Mmmmm, now I know what I am eating for lunch!

      The tinned salmon we get here int he UK is wild Alaskan or Pacific salmon. It is good stuff, nice with French mustard on top.

        Yes, I buy wild caught canned Alaskan salmon fairly often. Then I squish meat, skin, bones and all, add an egg or two, some spices and make really yummy patties. Cheap, easy and totally modern world Primal.

          Canned salmon is usually wild so go for it.

            I actually only eat canned wild salmon, because any of the fresh stuff you buy in this part of the world is farmed! Tonight I had it with Thai green curry and white potatoes... yum

            Do you fry them Graycat? Sounds interesting!

              All the canned salmon on the shelves at our grocery stores are canned wild Alaska salmon. I use in recipes that call for Tuna. They can it skin, bones and meat and so you get health benefits that you wouldn't get if it weren't canned. Salmon bones aren't something you can eat unless they are softened first by canning.

                  I just lightly sauté them in olive oil. A few minutes per side, till it forms a golden brown crust. I use chili and garlic powders for seasoning.

                    I pour a little coconut milk on top of a 6oz can every day for lunch.

                        Histamines up the a-hole. I try to limit to only fresh fish. But in a pinch, it works.

                        Also, there are BPA concerns in general

                          I can get about 5 servings out of a can. So I eat one serving (1/4 cup) with my eggs for break fast, and I freeze the others so I can grab them out when I need them. I try to have this every day but not always, so I go ahead and freeze it in the cutest little containers I got for Christmas

                            I eat lots of canned seafood, particularly salmon and sardines! I am a huge fan of Crown Prince Sardines in water. They also have delicious oysters in olive oil. Mix that with some kerrygold herb butter and I'll be in a great mood for awhile

                              I ate a can of salmon or sardines a day from 2002-2012. I could not gag down so much as a bite of the stuff now.
