If you’re in a “mixed diet” family, you know how it goes: One person wants meat, another wants fish, and maybe there are a couple of vegans or vegetarians in the mix. Eating together is an important part of staying close, but it's tricky to accommodate everyone's preferences in a single meal.

For me, my husband, and our circle of friends, this dynamic is always evolving. When I’m set up to make a meatless meal for my vegetarian husband and me and an omnivorous or paleo-leaning friend or family member drops by, I can easily add a plate or two to the table and let Target’s frozen Trident Wild Caught Salmon Burgers save the day. Suddenly, we’re having an effortless dinner party with friends.

Since this product costs $9.99 for six burgers, keeping it in the freezer at all times is a no-brainer. It’s the perfect solution for any dining dilemma.

These Versatile Burgers Are a Great Deal

Wild-caught salmon is one of the most wholesome proteins available, packed with healthy Omega-3 fats. However, salmon fillets, especially wild-caught, are expensive. For $10, this package of six wild-caught salmon burgers is a great deal.

They can also easily be cooked in a variety of ways—just as well in a panini grill as they do in a sauté pan or on your backyard grill. They are not pre-cooked, but there’s no thawing required: Take them straight from the freezer to the pan.

How To Use Salmon Burgers for Any Meal

You can use these burgers to feed the whole family by putting the cooked burgers on toasted buns, whipping up a quick tartar sauce, and serving a salad or oven fries on the side. Or you can use them like I do. Since my husband is a vegetarian, I can easily make a meatless meal and then use one salmon burger to bulk up my portion. Here are just a few of my favorite ways to serve them:

For Breakfast

  • Sear a patty or two and flake into a skillet of scrambled eggs along with a handful of fresh baby spinach and chopped scallions

  • Mix a flaked patty with shredded cheese and chopped fresh dill to fill an omelet

 For Lunch and Dinner

  • Cook a couple of burgers and flake them up on top of a simple pasta dish

  • Make a big salad, and chop up a couple of warm salmon burgers to sprinkle over the top

  • Make a grain bowl bar, with the option of salmon or beans as the protein with veggies and a tasty sauce

  • Stuff a burger into a panini or pita with lettuce and a flavorful sauce

  • Smash the cooked salmon burgers with mayo for a salad, or purée them with cream cheese or sour cream for an easy salmon dip

  • Top store-bought pizza dough with chunks of cooked salmon burger, veggies, and a sprinkling of cheese
