Enjoy our Lemon Pepper Salmon and Rice Salad for a quick and easy lunch! Portion control and meal planning just got easier, and it’s filled with wholesome ingredients.
We make salmon in our house regularly. I like to make it at least once a week. I’m pretty simple with my salmon and only use lemon pepper, and I love when we have leftover salmon, very rare for us! I love tossing it with some broccoli and white rice and just enjoying a bowl; it’s so good!
Lately, I’ve been so busy with work that I need something quick and easy for lunch. I now have an easier way to enjoy my favorite lunch, thanks to Chicken of the Sea Salmon Pouches and Minute® Ready to Serve Rice! We picked up the Chicken of the Sea Salmon Pouches in Lemon Pepper, but you can also find Barbecue, Sweet & Spicy, and Sriracha.

It’s all the flavors that I love already, but so much more convenient and I can enjoy it whenever I want with just a few minutes of prep. I have used and love the Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. My daughter loves white rice, and sometimes I’ll make a side dish she’s not happy with, and these are the perfect portion for a single serving. It only takes 60 seconds to fully cook in the microwave. When my daughter wants rice for dinner, those 60 seconds sound so much better than 15-20 minutes.
If you need portion control options, these two products offer great portion control! The Chicken of the Sea Salmon pouches is available in single serving 2.5-ounce pouches, perfect for my lunch serving.
The rice comes in a variety of options, but we love Jasmine, so that’s what we purchase. You can find all new varieties such as Brown & Quinoa and Basmati Rice, as well as Whole Grain options of Brown Rice, Brown & Wild Rice and Multi-Grain Medley. The cups are BPA free so no worries about that!
We’re picky about our salmon; it must be wild caught! We love that Chicken of the Sea offers wild caught salmon not only flavored but in pouches, not the can. It’s so much easier to open a pouch when you’re at work. Plus, they’re no bones. Salmon is rich in protein and omega-3s!
My daughter even loves this simple Lemon Pepper Salmon and Rice Salad! She’s a huge fan of rice and salmon. She had a rare food allergy and salmon was one of her first safe proteins!
