I am a huge fan of salmon and eat it a lot. This Salmon Quinoa Kale Bowl recipe uses canned wild sockeye salmon (caught in the Pacific Northwest) from Raincoast Trading. I especially love that they have a no added salt variety. The canned salmon is perfect for stocking in your pantry and adding to dishes like this or salads.

I will cook quinoa ahead of time. It is a great staple to keep refrigerated and eat over a few days. It makes a great base for meals and bowls like this.  Typically when making a bowl, I will add whatever I have on hand. Bowls are a great way to use leftovers!  They are also one of my favourite things to take for lunch.

Based in Vancouver on the west coast of Canada, Raincoast Trading offers consumers sustainably-harvested, gourmet canned seafood. I love the fact that Raincoast Trading is the first Canadian packaged retail seafood company endorsed by the Ocean Wise™ conservation program as an environmentally-friendly seafood.

I added bit of Garlic Ginger Marinade (also from Raincoast Trading) to the Salmon Quinoa Kale Bowl just prior to eating. I also like the taste of a simple balsamic vinaigrette.
