Tomato Salmon Sauce
Makes 2-3 servings

Here’s another great way to use those canned salmon and tomatoes you have in your cupboards. Serve this warm, comforting sauce over pasta or toasted bread for a great lunch or dinner course!

1 medium onion, chopped
2-3 teaspoons olive or canola oil
1 can tomatoes
1 can salmon (Tuna also works great in this recipe)
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs or other spice of your choice
Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Rinse and drain salmon (or tuna) cans. If there are bones, you can take those out after the salmon has been drained.
  2. Heat oil in a large saute pan. Add onions and saute until translucent, about 5-8 minutes. If using whole tomatoes, crush by hand into smaller chunks. Add crushed or diced tomatoes to pan and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes, or until reduced slightly.
  3. Add in salmon and cook 2-3 minutes, just to heat through.
  4. Add red wine vinegar and herbs.
  5. Taste; season with salt and pepper as needed.
