Bumble Bee Foods: Webisode 10: Game Day

Chef Scott assembles some healthy game day snacks with items that can usually be found in your fridge and pantry. Come game day, we’re often tempted to grab the chips and dip before we settle in on the couch.

GAME DAY RECIPES

Salmon Pita Sandwich

  • 1 can (5 oz) Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Atlantic Salmon, Skinless and Boneless, drained
  • 1 hard-boiled egg, chopped (he notes eggs but it only says 1. Please adjust to correct.)
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt or light sour cream
  • 2 whole wheat pitas 4 slices cucumber
  • ¼ cup mixed salad greens
  • Salt and pepper, to season

*Makes two Salmon Pita Sandwiches

Most of the items should be found in a average house hold. Warming the pita will make it easier to work with.

Directions

  1. Hard boil the egg by placing in a medium pot and adding enough water to cover the egg. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 8 to 12 minutes. To cool the egg down more quickly, drain the hot water, add cold water and ice cubes. Peel the egg immediately. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the drained salmon with the yogurt or light sour cream, season with salt and pepper.
  3. Rough chop hard-boiled egg and add to the salmon mixture.
  4. Gently slice the top of the pitas and open.
  5. Line the pitas evenly with the sliced cucumbers and mixed greens.
  6. Add the salmon salad evenly to both pitas
