Canned Salmon and Frozen Fish

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 12, 2010 at 10:29 PM

Hey guys, let me say thanks for the wonderful help I've recieved so far from this community.

I'm trying to get purer fish into my diet (rather than preprepared stuff), so I've taken to buying either canned salmon or frozen fillets o' fish.

For the canned salmon, what can I put on it to make it taste better? Homemade Mayo could be an option, though the recipe I used tasted overwhelmingly of olive oil. If you have a high O-3 mayo recipe you like, or another canned fish method, let me know.

For a slab of fish, what sort of sauces do you put on it? In my experience, fish is bland with just salt and pepper.

This site is really incredible, and any help is gratefully received!

Or you can add tapenade (olive or sundried tomato) to the canned salmon! So good!

I'll try this without eggplant (worst vegetable ever), maybe throw in some red pepper. Thanks!

Almost all canned salmon is wild-caught -- for some obscure reason, the farmed stuff doesn't can well.

Just make sure you're buying wild canned salmon, not farmed.

I take a can of salmon, with two avocados. Mix it all together and season with some Mrs.Dash fiesta lime. From there I mix this in with some romaine lettuce and celery. Simple, cheap and very good way to get a omega 3's and various nutrients.

Salmon loves avocado - so I mix it up with that, some red onion and olive oil. For white fish, try baking it with some olive oil, cilantro (coriander), strips of red pepper and carrot, lime juice (or lemon), garlic and chilli (or a combo of these). You can wrap it in some baking paper to make little parcels and it stays nice and moist.

Select the salmon with the highest percentage of calories as fat (usually red or sockeye salmon). It tastes better.

IMO, meat items that are low fat taste much better when some kind of fatty sauce is added. I like cream sauce. I usually just make it with cream (which is technically not paleo cuz of the diary) but you could probably find some coconut milk recipes out there. For tasty 'battered' fried food, you can dip the item in egg and then roll it in coconut flour and then fry as usual. Coconut flour is slightly carby but not too bad. You can add spices like pepper and garlic to the coconut flour for added twang. Yum! Another goto option is bacon. Bacon tastes good on almost everything and all that fat really helps when mixed with lean meats. Keep some cooked bacon in the fridge and see how fun it is to crumble it on other foods. I like olive oil just fine, but at least for me, it just not seem to add enough to low fat foods to make them taste as good as high fat foods, whereas other fats like animal fat, cream or cream cheese, or avocado seem to work better. Maybe the taste buds just do not like straight protein that much. Even a slightly carby sauce recipe like blueberry, shallots and red wine (like for venison) can make a world of difference. Personally, I find if I do not add something to the protein, I get full on it really fast but then I get hungry again soon after.

canned salmon, greek yogurt, lemon juice, diced onion, diced garlic, (any other veggies, such as peas, diced peppers, shredded carrots), dill, black pepper, capers

Mix together.. try not to break up the salmon so it stays pretty chunky (can also do it with canned tuna, or cooked salmon.. or diced chicken come to think of it)

Great with some lettuce wraps

I eat canned salmon on salad - current favorite is arugula, salmon, red onion, guacamole and salsa verde. It's also good in salmon patties, but substitute some ground flax seed or some other binder like O3 eggs for any bread crumbs. Lemon juice or horseradish mixed with Greek yogurt or cream to top.

I'm really simple with baking fish - some olive oil and lemon or Mrs. Dash Chipotle/Lime.

Yeah that stuff is great, I keep it in my car for emergencies when I'm out for a while and just need a healthy snack. It is kinda gross at that warm /tepid temperature, but hey, its healthy. I eat it plain, oh yeah and get it packed in water to avoid the ridiculous omega-3 content from the olive oil for sure.

Coincidentally, I just posted a recipe for Hot Salmon Hash on my blog this week. It's made with eggplant. If you like corned beef hash, you will love this. It was quite tasty! Salmon Hash Recipe
