    Canned Salmon

    Shop Now
    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.

    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!
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    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.
