Canned Salmon Sandwich Recipe – recipe for a healthier, Omega 3 rich version of a tuna fish sandwhich – the canned salmon sandwich.
I decided to try canned salmon in place of tuna after all the mercury hype I heard about with certain tunas. I much prefer the salmon, and I definitely feel healthier about my choice. This recipe is something I put together quickly to show just one option for getting your omega 3 requirement easily and without cooking.
I also wanted to point out that having the salmon sandwich was an easier route for me to have wild salmon (vs. farm raised). There have been studies which show that wild is definitely better. I find it challenging when cooking because to me, the taste and texture are different and I prefer the farm raised salmon. But, when it comes to canned salmon, I love the wild salmon.
One last note, I always try to use red bell pepper in place of green bell pepper because of its added health benefits. Compared to green peppers, red peppers have more vitamins and nutrients and contain the antioxidant lycopene. The level of carotene, another antioxidant, is nine times higher in red peppers. Red peppers have twice the vitamin C content of green peppers. Also, one large red bell pepper contains 209 mg of vitamin C, which is more than double the 98 mg in one large citrus orange.
