Starkist Mango Chipotle Salmon Creations

Who doesn't love a good tuna sandwich every once in awhile? Canned fish like tuna and salmon is such a quick, easy to prepare sources of protein, but unfortunately, it gets a bit boring for my palate after a while. Apparently, I'm not alone in this thinking and the folks at Starkist got the memo, because they have gotten creative - first by introducing new "pouch packaging" (no more liquid to mess with), and then by introducing flavored varieties. I'll be honest and say I never had canned salmon, but the addition of mango and chipotle piqued my interest.

I made the whole thing onto a sandwich and didn't add any condiments, so I would experience the full flavor - or lack thereof. YUM! I was thoroughly impressed. Each bite contains the taste of salmon, paired with sweet mango and a little spicy chipotle kick at the end. These flavors married beautifully, and just as I suspected, no mayo was required.

Each pouch of Starkist Mango Chipotle Salmon Creations contains 2 (1/4 cup) servings of salmon. Each serving provides 60 calories, 1 gram of total fat (2% of the daily value), no saturated fat, 12% of the DV for sodium (300 mg), 10 grams of protein and 2 grams of carbohydrates.

Not only was the taste great, my lunch held me for hours, given the 28 grams of protein in each pouch. I purchased this pouch for 99 cents on sale at my local grocer and it was WELL worth it. You better believe I will be stocking up at this price.
