If you’ve been following my recipes for long, you probably realize that my husband is not a fan of fish and seafood. However, I could eat ONLY fish and seafood for all my life and not complain. Since I’m too lazy, um, … I mean, “busy”… to cook two meals (Seriously, who needs that kind of hassle?), a quick and easy seafood lunch is a great way to get the seafood I love while still having a dinner that my husband enjoys. My favorite quick and easy seafood lunch is this Easy Canned Salmon Salad.

The canned salmon needs to have the liquid strained off. Next, I use a fork to flake the salmon apart and make it fluffy. Now, I use one celery stick with leaves and chop it rather small. The celery leaves have lots of flavor while the celery stick gives each bite a nice crunch.
In all my pictures here, I used 1/4 cup of mayonnaise. If you prefer your fish salads (tuna salad, salmon salad, etc.) wetter, add a little more than a quarter cup. If you prefer your fish salads drier, add a little less than a quarter cup of mayo.
Canned salmon, chopped celery with leaves, mayonnaise, and Old Bay Seasoning are simply mixed together. I like to eat my easy canned salmon salad on crackers, celery sticks, or in lettuce wraps.
