Elevate Your Next Tuna Casserole With A Canned Salmon Swap
Salmon and tuna are both dark fish with deep flavors and firm textures that hold up in the oven, making canned salmon the perfect swap for tuna in a tuna noodle casserole.
Tuna is meaty and mildly fishy, whereas salmon features a sharper umami flavor profile and richer, more robust fishiness. It's also a more economical swap when it comes to price.
When making this swap, you can use a regular tried-and-true tuna noodle casserole recipe. Or, feel free to tailor the ingredients to complement the flavor profile of the salmon.
