Easy Paleo Salmon and Sardines from Vital Choice
Either way, wild seafood provides Omega-3’s, selenium, calcium, and other micro nutrients. Why take Fish Oil when you can eat this yummy fish too?
Why I Love Vital Choice
I’ve been buying Vital Choice products for years. They offer seafood in a variety of forms. The seafood is wild caught and sustainably harvested, making a big difference in the taste and nutrient content. Farmed fish cannot compare to the nutrition in wild caught fish.
Here’s why I’m both an affiliate and a customer of Vital Choice, and if you want to order some, there’s a 10% coupon below for new customers.
Easy Paleo Salmon
My personal favorite is Wild Red Alaskan Sockeye Salmon. This salmon comes with the bones and skin, providing an excellent source of calcium, vitamin D3, selenium, and Omega-3’s. You can get it without the skin and bones if you prefer.
This is by far the tastiest salmon ever! I actually prefer it to fresh sometimes as I tend to dry it out when cooking…
You can get large or small cans with easy pull-tops, and some with spices and/or salt.
Here’s a recipe for canned sockeye in an easy paleo salmon frittata that works fine any time of day.
Outstanding Real Sardines
Vital Choice carries a canned sardine (bones and skin here as well!) which is absolutely delicious. I prefer the one canned in olive oil for a great dose of healthy fats. You can find them here.
They also carry a yummy sardine in organic tomato sauce here. Or get the sardines water-packed.
If you aren’t familiar with sardines, they taste a little like tuna. They are one of the quickest and easiest ways to get protein on a paleo diet. My Dad used to eat cheap canned sardines and I had no idea how good they were until I tried these. (Cheap sardines aren’t really sardines at all!) If you’re squeamish at first, try the ones in olive oil or tomato sauce or get a Sampler Pack.
I eat salmon or sardines straight from the can on a salad or I heat it up with some cooked zucchini or other leftover veggies.
I keep a can of salmon and Artichoke Hearts in my car (with a baggie for the empty cans) and a fork. This is a gourmet emergency meal. If I’m stuck somewhere, I can eat well with no compromise.
