Having a few cans of Wild Alaskan canned salmon in your cupboard ensures that a healthy, hearty, easy meal like this one is just moments away.
Some may prefer to use our skinless-boneless Wild Red™ Sockeye, because Traditional Wild Red™ contains edible skin and soft bones that some may not want in the taco context.
Our Traditional Wild Red™ has about one-fifth more omega-3s, and the bones are so soft they can be easily blended into the salmon with a fork, adding calcium to the mix.
