This simple seafood salad is great for a healthy, high protein lunch when you’re low on time and energy. Bursting with healthy fats and omega-3s, this quick meal comes together in less than five minutes and has a delicious tangy flavorful. Make a big batch and have a nutritious, satisfying option for lunch all week.
Made in under 5 minutes, my Simple Seafood Salad is the perfect portion for one person and has an amazing tangy, sweet, and slightly vinegary flavor without any added oils or creamy dressings.
Using plain yogurt as opposed to mayo or another creamy sauce boosts the protein and makes it so most of the fat in the recipe comes from the healthy, omega-3-rich kind found in the fish you choose. My three go-tos are canned sardines, salmon, or tuna! Each of them work lovely with these flavors and ingredients. They’re also relatively cheaper than fresh fish and great to have on hand when you need a healthy meal in a hurry.

I make this simple seafood salad ALL THE TIME. In fact, I feature it so much on my Instagram account that people have been begging me for the recipe for quite some time now. I felt bad not sharing it outright since it really is so simple, but I wanted to take the time to actually craft a proper post for it. Finally did it!
My favorite way to eat this is scooped up with crunchy crackers or flatbreads. It’s also great on toast, over lettuce, or even rolled in nori! Sort of like a seafood salad sushi. 🙂
Although the recipe makes one serving, it can easily be doubled or tripled for a healthy, quick meal all week long! It also keep very well in the fridge and actually becomes MORE flavorful as you let the ingredients meld together.
A convenient, easy way to get in some quality protein and healthy fats in one meal!
