Quick, Easy Superfood Recipes
Spruce Camp salmon jerky was developed to be the ultimate quick, easy, superfood snack. Made from high protein, high Omega salmon and natural marinade ingredients, its packed with flavor and nutrients. That said, it’s no fun eating the exact same thing 24×7, let alone two meals in a row.
Here are three of my go-to recipes using our salmon jerky as a foundation…
- Salmon Jerky & Avocado – Cut ripe avocado into 1/8-1/4″ thick slices. Pair one slice with one salmon jerky fillet. No salt or other seasonings needed. It’s that easy. Some advanced variations… drizzle a bit of high quality olive oil over each pairing and/or add each pairing to your favorite multigrain or other crackers.
- Salmon Jerky Baguettes – Split a fresh baguette length-wise with a bread knife and then cut cross-length into 2-3″ sections. Add 2-3 salmon jerky fillets per section and drizzle each with olive oil or honey depending on your craving for savory or sweet. Of course, feel free to add sliced avocado or tomato as you like.
- Salmon Jerky Salsa Guacamole – Dice salmon jerky into 1/4″ cubes. Dice ripe cherry tomatoes and avocado into 1/2″ cubes. Blend gently with olive oil, lemon juice and garlic salt to taste. Leave it chunky as opposed to a guacamole mash. Eat with your favorite tortilla chips.
These are my family’s favorite mash-ups. I started making salmon jerky when my boys were young. We wanted a healthy kids snack with a taste they loved and that they could take to school or sports. As their tastes refined and consumption range widened, we began integrating the jerky into simple recipes. Now, we eat jerky directly from a pouch and for healthy appetizers and snacks. We combine the few basic ingredients at home often, but also take them to go on good road trip snacks, healthy camping trip meals, and gourmet picnic foods.
