What is the nutrition like for this Salmon Wrap recipe?

Salmon is such a healthy food to regularly include in your diet. Perhaps most famous for its omega-3 content, it offers plenty of other nutrients as well. The other ingredients in these salmon wraps provide substantial nutritional benefits as well. Here are the highlights:

Salmon (Omega-3 Fatty Acids, B Vitamins, Potassium, Selenium, Antioxidants)

Salmon is one of the more powerful sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. Studies show Omega-3s can help reduce blood pressure, fight inflammation and even decrease the risk of cancer. B vitamins are also abundant in salmon. B vitamins help you have enough energy and also help fight inflammation. There are some nutritional differences between farmed salmon and wild salmon. In particular, wild salmon contains greater levels of potassium, which can help you maintain healthy blood pressure. Salmon's selenium content makes it a healthy choice for both your bones and your thyroid.

If you want to make sure you're getting the best quality salmon, and seafood in general, check out Vital Choice Seafood. I personally love it as a reliable source of healthy fish, as I love seafood and live nowhere near the coast!

Garlic (Beneficial Sulfur Compounds, Manganese, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Selenium)

Garlic has been used in homeopathic remedies for thousands of years and is thought to reduce the risk of heart disease, high cholesterol and some types of cancer. Eating garlic may also help prevent colds and other minor illnesses.

Scientists believe these substantial health benefits may stem primarily from garlic's sulfur compounds such as allicin, diallyl disulfide and sallyl cysteine.

Lemon (Vitamin C)

Just one lemon provides 51% of the daily recommended vitamin C. This is important not only to fight colds but for long-term health as studies show consuming produce with vitamin C helps prevent heart disease and stroke. Consuming lemons can also help protect against anemia and kidney stones.

Romaine Lettuce (Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Calcium, Potassium)

Romaine lettuce is good for your bones, your immune system and your eye health.

Tomatoes (Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Potassium, Antioxidants)

Packed with antioxidants, tomatoes may help reduce the risk of several kinds of cancer. Furthermore, they contain vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and potassium, many of which most people don't get enough of.

Bonus tip? Combining tomatoes with healthy fats, like the salmon in this recipe, boosts absorption of tomatoes' phytochemicals!

Tips for Serving Salmon Wraps

These salmon wraps work just as well for lunch as for dinner. They're easy to pack and eat at a desk or to prep ahead for an easy weeknight dinner.

If you're serving to kiddos, use your best judgment for how your own kids will enjoy the salmon wraps most. Some kids will love helping to build their own salmon wraps while others will prefer enjoying the wrap deconstructed, with each component separate and available to dip in that delicious homemade caesar dressing.

If you're looking for ideas on what to serve with this kid friendly salmon recipe, here are a few of my favorite options:

Any simple fruit or veggie would be great to round out the meal!

Are salmon wraps good for meal prep?

Yes! Straight from our popular gluten free meal prep meal plans, my caesar salmon wraps are the perfect salmon meal prep recipe.

To prep ahead, roast the salmon. Let the salmon cook, remove the skin, flake into pieces and store in the fridge. Wash and chop lettuce and tomatoes. Make the caesar dressing and store in the fridge.

With these steps done, all you'll need to do when you're ready to enjoy is assemble your wrap!

Salmon Meal Prep Recipe

Can I turn this into a paleo salmon recipe?

Yes! A slightly different version of these wraps appeared on our Paleo meal prep meal plans.

To make this recipe paleo, all you need to do is substitute coconut aminos for the tamari and use collard wraps, or paleo tortillas, for the wrap.

How else can I use this homemade caesar dressing recipe?

Oh, so many ways! This homemade caesar dressing recipe is absolutely delicious, as well as super versatile.

It pretty much goes without saying, it's a great choice to level up your salads. While I love a simple olive oil and balsamic, sometimes I feel like mixing it up with something creamy. This recipe is perfect for those occasions! You may find that your kiddos are more willing to eat a salad with a creamy dressing as well.

Homemade caesar dressing is also an excellent dip for veggies. Prep a big batch at the beginning of the week and your whole family will be more likely to snack on raw veggies with such a tasty dip available.

Finally, try topping a quinoa bowl or other grain bowl with caesar dressing! I find a sauce really brings these Buddha bowl type meals together.
