canned salmon recipesWe all know salmon is good for you (not to mention delicious), but it can be expensive to incorporate the often pricey fish into your regular routine. That’s where canned salmon comes in. Rich in hearth-healthy omega-3 and (surprisingly) calcium, it can be just as healthy as the salmon sold in fillets and steaks, and used in a variety of ways.

 

Most of us have at least a few cans of tuna on hand in our pantries, but with recipes as good as these, why not make some room for canned salmon, too?
