Superfood Salmon

Salmon has long been touted as one of the healthiest proteins out there-it's filled with omega-3's which are great for your child's heart and brain. Unfortunately, though, it doesn't typically rank high on kids' lists of favorite foods.

Well, we're about to change that. Here are some amazing-and super-healthy!-salmon recipes that will please even the pickiest of eaters.


Salmon Burgers

Kids (and adults!) love burgers, so why not make them salmon burgers? Top with your child's favorite condiments for a delightful dinner that doesn't stray too far from the familiar.

Salmon and Orzo Salad

Pasta salads can get pretty boring-that is, until you swap out plain ol' elbow pasta for orzo and bring some salmon and feta cheese to the party.

And for an added bonus, this recipe uses Sea Pak salmon burgers-pre-made, gluten-free salmon patties that, even on their own, are perfect for those nights when time is at a premium. You can even cook them in the microwave!
