Wild Planet Fish and Seafood Products

Wild Planet Foods, the leading provider of sustainable seafood sent me some of their fish and seafood products to review for all of you.

Fish and Seafood is an excellent source of Omega 3 which is really important in a healthy diet. One great source of Omega 3 is the Wild Planet's Wild Albacore Tuna which contains 1,384mg Omega 3 per serving. Yes, you read that right!

Hubby and I are both trying to eat healthier and increase the Omega 3 in our diets so we were pretty excited to receive these products to try out for you. I received Wild Albacore Tuna in the pouch, a can of Wild Saradines, a can of Anchovies, a can of Sockeye Salmon and Wild Albacore Tuna in a can.

One afternoon for lunch I decided to whip up a quick batch of homemade salmon cakes. One of the things I noticed right away about their canned salmon was that it was full of chunky bones like most of the other brands that I've used in the past. I like to fry my salmon cakes in a combination of olive oil, butter, salt and pepper over low heat until done. These salmon cakes were delicious and they were quickly eaten up for lunch that day.

The very next day I used the can of Wild Albacore Tuna and whipped us up some quick tuna melt sandwiches. We mix up the flaked tuna with a little bit of mayo, chopped onion, salt and black pepper and the fry it in a frying pan like a grilled cheese sandwich. I like mine with a thinly sliced tomato but hubby enjoys his plain. These sandwiches were equally as delicious!

Later that day I whipped up a quick tuna pasta salad so that we could enjoy it the next day. I will publish my recipe for that later next week. I used the pouch of Wild Albacore Tuna in my pasta salad and LOVED that it was in a pouch with no fluid that I had to drain away. I think these pouches are perfect for camping & traveling so I will be picking up a few of those next week when we head out on our camping trip.

I still have the anchovies and sardines to sample but I am sure they are just as great as the 3 products that we just tried. I will update this post when I get to those later this month.

All of the Wild Planet Foods products that we got to review were delicious! We were very impressed with their quality, flavor, texture and ease-of-use. We will definitely be buying this products in the future.

I have not tried the Wild Planet brand , but I am glad that you enjoyed these products. My one question is :Was the canned salmon full of chunky bones? Or did you mean to,say that it wa not like the other cans you have tried?
