How to make one…. Super Scrumptious Salmon Sandwich

Salmon is an excellent source of nutrition-complete with omega-3s fatty acids; for many health ailments such as cardiac and diabetes.

To make sure you have a supply on hand to help maintain a frequent intake of oily fish.

I have always created a grocery shopping list over the week to make my shopping as easy and organized as possible. What I have decided to do lately and works very well is to add fish to my list. Purchasing one to two filets of salmon ahead of time can help make the best of a freezer.

Load up the freezers:

1. Leave on or remove the skin off the filets.
2. Using a cutting board: cut steaks into 3 oz. portion sizes.
3. Place each steak in small food storage bags.
4. Lay each baggie flat in gallon size freezer storage bag.
5. Set bag of salmon steaks flat in the freezer until frozen solid.
6. Frozen fish stay perfectly fresh for approximately three months or longer if you wish.

Morning of Thawing:

1. Remove number of pieces desired to cook for dinner.
2. Leave steaks in baggies on plates in fridge. (do not thaw at room temperature)
3. Allow steaks to thaw over the day in the fridge.
4. Fish is ready for cooking

Add cooked salmon to any number of cooking methods:

1. Pasta dishes. (Tomato or cream sauce based)
2. Asian rice dishes.
3. Salmon steak broiled, BQ, or fried and serve with potatoes, rice or beans.
4. Salads.
5. Sandwiches.
