The #1 Best Canned Salmon to Buy, Says Dietitian

Published

on

Between the protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and plenty of other good-for-you nutrients packed into this fish, salmon is often the perfect addition to any meal. Adding some smoked salmon to a breakfast sandwich, topping a salad with it for an on-the-go lunch, or grilling a filet with some veggies for dinner. No matter how or when you eat it, you’ll soon be reaping the benefits of your salmon-packed meal.

According to Lisa Moskovitz, RD, CEO of NY Nutrition Group, author of The Core 3 Healthy Eating Plan, and member of our medical expert board, the American Heart Association recommends eating at least a 3-ounce serving of fatty fish, such as salmon, twice a week.

But, the idea of cooking up an entire filet two times per week could be a little daunting, so going for canned salmon makes it even simpler to whip up an easy high-protein meal.

And yet, while grabbing a canned salmon seems easy, choosing which one to grab among numerous options at the grocery store can be a lot more overwhelming than you might think. With so many different types, it’s tough to know which can is going to give you the most of those benefits found in a fresh piece of salmon. So which canned salmon does Moskovitz recommend?

“Not only is wild fish generally richer in beneficial, anti-inflammatory omega-3’s, but it also contains fewer contaminants that when eaten in excess, may be harmful to your health,” says Moskovitz.

Plus, the more omega-3’s in your salmon, the better for both your overall brain and heart health—two of the most important organs in the body. Plus, canned salmon is shelf-stable, so there’s no reason not to pop a few in your pantry for the next time you’re looking to make a quick, healthy meal.

Not sure what to make with it? Here are 9 Things You Can Make With a Can of Salmon.
