I’ve noticed my food mood directly correlates to the weather. We’re having the warmest winter that actually feels like spring. I’ve been craving fresh foods like salads, fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, and no cooking! These little salmon stuffed peppers taste like a bite of summer, and best part is they only take a few minutes to prepare.
In full disclosure, I am not a salmon fan. I prefer milder fish like tilapia, halibut and tuna. You know, all the fish that taste more like chicken than fish.
Wild Planet sent me some sustainably caught seafood samples to try, and I was pretty excited about the tuna, but a little worried about the salmon.

I used Wild Planet Sockeye Salmon in this dish. The flavor is mild, and the fish is packed by itself, no liquids, no additives, no fillers…just salmon! I also used my Paleo Mayo to keep the entire dish healthy and clean.
I was whipping up a batch of these stuffed peppers when my 6 year old came in with all his neighborhood buddies. They had been running around outside and came in like a wild pack of smelly puppies, thirsty and hungry. I pulled out fresh fruit, nuts and snacky foods, all the stuff I knew they’d love. I thought, no way are these kids going to eat peppers, let alone salmon. I didn’t even offer it. But, before I knew it those sneaky little fingers had swiped and devoured my entire plate of stuffed peppers! Luckily I had already taken a few pictures.
