Veggie latkes and salmon, corn and avocado

This post is sponsored by Chicken of the Sea.

Latkes are usually made with shredded potatoes, but now and then you have to change things up, right? So shredded zucchini and carrots seemed like a solid choice. Low carb and with only an egg and a tiny amount of flour to help bind them together, they’re super healthy! And as much as I like these veggie latkes on their own, adding a topping to them is a great way to kick things up a level.

I combined Chicken of the Sea Smoked Salmon Pouch with roasted corn, cubes of fresh avocado and diced shallot and topped each veggie latke. A squirt of lemon juice and a good sprinkling of fresh chopped dill gives you an awesome lunch or dinner. I served them with a side of nonfat Greek yogurt mixed with fresh garlic and dill. Add a poached egg and call a fancy brunch on the weekend.

So many options!

Chicken of the Sea is now really proud to offer MSC certified products. The blue Marine Stewardship Council stamp on the pouch means that tough standards have been met for sustainable fishing practices. Only 12%of all global fish caught is MSC certified but already plans are in place to increase that number by a lot. By having the MSC, we can protect our oceans from overfishing, bycatch and environment protection so our seafood can thrive.

Salmon is always a popular choice for dinner in my house. It’s loaded with omega 3’s and works as a great protein choice.

Other Great ways to use Chicken of the Sea Smoked Salmon.

  • Add to scrambled eggs for a tasty breakfast
  • Smoked salmon grilled cheese sandwich.
  • Add your favorite salad toppings straight into the pouch, and boom, a walking salad!
  • Mix through some shredded potatoes for an easy salmon hash.
