    a questions on canned fish

    Primal Fuel
    i know that anything canned is not ideal as a primal food and of course fresh is always preferable, but due to expense and now the threat of oil in my area's seafood canned or packaged tuna and salmon is beginning to look like the best option for fish...
    does any one eat canned tuna or salmon? it's so easy to pack for lunch to top a salad...i recently tried some smoked salmon that was packaged in a pouch (which is ideal for camping, tried it this weekend) and it was yummy. the ingredient list had no crazy long chemicals that i couldn't identify, the only bad thing was brown sugar. anyone's thoughts?
    i will maintain the truth
    i knew naturally as a child
    i won't forfeit my creativity
    to a world that's all laid out for me
    i'll look at everything around me
    and i will vow to bear in mind
    that all of this was just someone's idea
    it could just as well be mine - ani difranco

    I eat canned salmon. I buy a sodium free version. The only things in the can is salmon...and water.

    Mr. Sisson mentions that canned salmon is usually wild because the farmed kind is less suitable for canning. I would rather eat canned than the farmed salmon injected with pink dye. I eat tuna and salmon from vacuum sealed packages regularly for lunch because of the convenience factor. I would rather eat fresh grilled tuna but it's not practical for me.

    +1 for canned salmon. I think that the wild caught red salmon is way better than the pink kind as well. I usually eat a couple cans of it a week.

    Oh and I like kipper and sardines as well. Like Canadianwoman said though I always get them just in water without any sauce.

    In the grand scheme of things, it's sort of a nit pick. If you cut out all the bs and you're at the point where you're debating canned vs. fresh salamon for your salads... you win!

    I eat canned salmon, mackerel and sardines. The salmon and mackerel have too much salt for me, so I soak it in water for a while to remove some of it. Then use the fish in some kind of recipe (lately making a lot of Thai style dishes with the mackerel). High nutrient, low cost and can make it into something that tastes pretty good.

    The salmon that is sold in pouches or packets is not always labeled as wild. It also sometimes has unwelcome ingredients such as soy oil. Read those labels!
