As more of us have returned to, or maintained, quarantining measures, meal planning becomes more home-focused as well.

Making fewer trips to the grocery store is less of a problem with a well-stocked pantry, and even a marginally stocked pantry is likely to yield a can or package of tuna. Beyond being a lunch box staple, tuna stars in summer-ready salads that can punch up the protein content while keeping cool.

My mama used to make salmon croquettes with canned salmon - and it was NASTY. But I've discovered that there is high quality sustainably harvested salmon available in cans now. I've begun to use it instead of canned tuna.
