Here’s a note from Crystal about her wild salmon wild rice and kale soup: “Wild rice soup is something my family has been making for years--it’s one of our favorite meals! And wild rice is a wonderful whole food produced locally in the north woods of my home state of Wisconsin. Paired with fresh kale from our garden and nutrient-rich seafood- this 30-minute salmon, wild rice & kale soup is incredibly healthy and full of flavor!”
I’ve made wild rice soup with both chicken and ground beef in the past, but never with salmon--when I saw your Easy Salmon product, I knew it would be the perfect protein to not only make this meal feel fancy, but get dinner on the table in a fraction of the time! Thanks for the opportunity!”

Add in diced red potato, carrot, and sea salt and allow to simmer for 8 minutes. Add in package of Easy Salmon and chopped kale and cook for 5 more minutes, or until vegetables are tender and salmon is cooked through. Stir in the cooked wild rice.
