Salmon Jerky

This high-protein snack wins on so many different levels. The flavor is outstanding, using an array of bold spices. The preparation is simple – it just requires combining a few ingredients in a bag and letting them marinate overnight. And the final product has a moist, chewy texture that would rival even the best store-bought jerky.

Good to know: Wild-caught salmon is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and is known to help reduce inflammation. Always choose wild-caught Alaskan salmon, and know that the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, California has recently determined Alaskan salmon to be the only low-risk salmon in terms of sustainability criteria.
