This recipe isn’t for the faint at heart (especially if you don’t like canned salmon) BUT it is one of my favorite hearty yet somehow light meals that packs a mean protein punch.  I throw it all in tupperware with a piece of fruit on the side and call it lunch!

Protein Powerhouse Salmon Salad

Serves: 1


  • 1 serving cooked quinoa
  • 1 packet boneless/skinless salmon or 1/2 can salmon
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2 T spicy mustard
  • 2 T Braggs Liquid Amino Acids
  • 1/4-1/2 cup broccoli slaw, chopped a bit to smaller pieces

That’s it! You can adjust the yogurt/mustard/seasonings as you need to taste.  The recipe clocks in at about 375 calories with 40 g protein!

Do you like canned salmon or tuna?
