Salmon

Smoked paprika salmon chunks are a fun way to create an appeatizer or meal with healthy salmon! These smoked salmon chunks are keto friendly and nutritious!

Salmon is one of those really healthy foods that we all should be eating at least weekly. Just in case you don’t know why, here’s a synopsis of eleven impressive health benefits from Healthline:

  • Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Salmon is one of the best sources of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. 
  • Great Source of Protein
  • High in B Vitamins
  • Good Source of Potassium
  • Loaded With Selenium
  • Contains the Antioxidant Astaxanthin
  • May Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease
  • May Benefit Weight Control

Salmon Recipes

Lots of salmon recipes give us options for cooking this delicious seafood. And, you don’t need to do much to the salmon to make it even more scrumptious. You want to make sure your salmon recipe lets the salmon be centerpiece flavor. And, no recipe does this better than the smoked paprika salmon chunks. 

You probably aren’t thinking of cutting your salmon into chunks, but once you try this recipe, you’ll become a believer. Just make sure that the centermost part of your salmon is thick so the chunks don’t just shred. You can slice off the thinner ends of the salmon and cook those, too. Just consider them a bonus treat for you to munch on when preparing this recipe!  You need not look anywhere else for salmon recipes because I have created so so so many

Pineapple Salmon Recipes

Healthy food doesn’t have to be boring. I mean you can have something packed with flavors and textures with just a few ingredients. And, that’s exactly what this pineapple salmon recipe is. Healthy and packed with flavors and textures!

You also have some good options when you’re thinking about the protein you want to use. Now I decided to grill some salmon, let it cool, then shred and make into a divine salad. But, if you don’t have time to do that then grab a pouch of delicious salmon that’s found in most grocery stores in the same place as canned and pouch tuna! And, if you want to pick up a rotisserie chicken and use that, then that’s tops on the ‘easy’ scale.

Canned Pineapple

Dole’s pineapple tidbits are the best canned pineapple out there. There’re so many things you can do with a can of tidbits. This pineapple tidbit salmon salad is loaded with other healthy things like almonds, celery and red onions.

But, the star of the salad offering a distinct contrast to the savory going on are the pineapple tidbits! You’re gonna have a small burst of juicy mother nature sweetness in each bite! And, we’re going to use some of the 100% natural juice in making our dressing. So get crackin’ and pick up some cans of Dole Sunshine Pineapple Tidbits. There are soooooooo many things you can do with this product. Like salt and pepper, they’re a staple in my pantry and I always have them on hand! xo ~ally
