Fresh fish is always great, but there’s no reason to avoid canned salmon, which can be a useful pantry staple when you need last-minute dinner ideas. Some varieties may even be slightly richer in heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids than fresh fish, according to USDA research, and because the bones are generally mixed in, canned salmon has significantly more calcium than fresh fillets.

These tasty burgers from Caroline Green make the most of the fish, and come together quickly so you have a healthy option when you’re grilling out. Keep in mind that if you want to serve them on buns or add other toppings, your nutritional information will change, and you may want to cut back on the salt to keep sodium levels in check. Bonus: These burgers freeze well, so you can save any extras and thaw them for a quick, healthy meal.
