Life sure is busy with a 2.5 year old and a newborn! I have a 10 day old at home now so cooking meals for my daughter has taken on a whole new level of speed and efficiency.
Here’s a quick lunch I whipped together for her yesterday when she said she wanted to eat fish for lunch. These mini pita pocket sandwiches took me less than 5 minutes to make.
I love the mini pita pockets; they are small so kids can hold them easily. Plus, you can stuff them with different things to offer the children some variety. I used canned Alaskan Salmon, a great staple to keep in the pantry as canned Alaskan Salmon is frozen at the time it is caught and is very high in Omega 3. Canned Salmon is also a great alternative to buying the farmed Atlantic Salmon that has lower nutrients when compared to the Alaskan Salmon.
Here’s the recipe:
2 Mini Pita Pockets from Trader Joe’s
1 6oz canned Alaskan Salmon Fish
1 tbsp Mayonnaise
1 tsp Relish
Garlic salt to taste
1) Mix all the ingredients except for the pita pockets in a bowl.
2) Remove one of the edges from the Pita Pocket and put the mixed ingredients in the pita.
Note: You can also add tomatoes, onions, chives to the Salmon Salad.
So Yummy! So Yummy!
