Salmon Avocado Mash


Salmon Avocado Mash

As far as I’m concerned, canned Wild-caught Alaskan salmon should be a staple in everyone’s pantry!  It’s inexpensive, convenient, versatile, and packed with nutrients.  Salmon is a complete protein with vitamins D and E, selenium, iron, magnesium, and B complex vitamins, but the biggest celebrity of them all, omega-3 fatty acids!  Omega-3’s are crucial in helping fight inflammation in the body.  Inflammation is a major contributing factor in nearly all diseases.   Eating canned salmon once a week can help reduce your risk of developing arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.  Is that convincing enough for you?  

 

Ingredients (4-6 servings)

  • 1 15 oz. can Wild-caught Alaskan salmon (drained)
  • 2 avocados (mashed)
  • 2 hard boiled eggs (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Primal-approved mayo
  • 2 tablespoons jarred relish (no sugar added)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • juice of 1 lime or lemon (this helps keep the avocados from turning brown)

 

Directions

  1. Add the salmon to a large mixing bowl.  Smash the avocados (and eggs) on a separate plate or add directly to salmon and smash in the bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
  2. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.  I had a scoop for lunch along with some veggies, aged cheese, and nuts.
