Asian Salmon Salad

Here is an great easy way to get some Omega-3’s in your day.  Trader Joe’s sells wild pink salmon in the can inexpensively so make it a pantry staple and whip up this salad for lunch or dinner when you are short on time.

1 (7 ½ ounce) can wild pink salmon (remove any bones)
½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 Tablespoon finely chopped scallions ( green parts only)
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon sesame oil

Place the salmon in a small bowl and use a fork to break it up.  Add the ginger, lime juice, scallions, salt and sesame oil. Mix well and taste (does it need more lime? Salt?).

Serve on top of salad greens, in a whole grain wrap with more veggies or with whole grain crackers.
