Wild Canned Salmon Salad Wraps
One of the easiest ways to eat omega 3 rich fish is by eating canned salmon 1-2 times per week. This is a quick staple that I often recommend for people who do not have time to prepare elaborate meals but still want to optimize their nutrition. Surprisingly, it’s easier to find wild salmon in a can at a grocery store than it is to order a wild salmon filet at a restaurant. At restaurants, it’s usually farm raised salmon. But wild is best for increasing omega 3 fatty acids and decreasing PCBs, omega 6s and contaminants. This is a quick way to get your anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids and enjoy the fresh tastes included in this wrap.
The recipe calls for Siete Foods tortillas or butter lettuce leaves for those that avoid or limit gluten and grains. Top with broccoli sprouts for an extra punch of antioxidants and nutrition!

- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 8 almond tortillas by Siete Foods OR 8 butter lettuce leaves
- Combine the canned salmon, mayonnaise, celery and red onion in a medium size mixing bowl.
