It’s time for the easiest meatball you will ever make!! Now if you know me at all or follow me on instagram you know that I have a deep love for Safe Catch Tuna. Now my hubby is crazy and doesn’t love tuna… which makes me glad he is a firefighter so when he is gone for days at a time, its tuna and salmon time! But for real I know I can use my Safe Catch stash at least twice a week and always make sure to do so. I love that they added canned salmon to their lineup this year because A- it’s delicious, and B- it’s packed with so much great nutrients. During pregnancy especially, but also postpartum, getting in proper Vitamin D is crazy important and Salmon is packed with it. Just 2.5 ounces of salmon give you 500 IUs of Vitamin D and you should get between 2,000 – 4,000 a day!
So I love finding new ways to enjoy my canned seafood and meatballs are my new jam. Just adding some egg and almond flour to bind the salmon then your favorite spices and flavors, makes for moist and delish nutrient bombs. I just think bacon and dill make the most phenomenal combination, as evidenced by my Bacon Dill Roasted Potato Salad that i love so much. These meatballs are great too because they actually stick together! Sometimes it can be hard to get canned fish to stick together for patties or meatballs but this combo of ingredients keeps them in perfect portions that even kiddos will love.
