This recipe was written by Sarah Kesseli for Meal Prep on Fleek in collaboration with GoodCook.

These crispy salmon cakes are full of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and finished with a refreshing antioxidant-rich mango salsa. The cakes are made with crunchy panko breadcrumbs for an ultra-crispy texture that rivals any restaurant!

Where are my seafood lovers at? One protein that I will never pass up during the salmon is salmon. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely eat it all year long, but it just hits different in the summer, especially when you topped it with a sweet and refreshing mango salsa that transports your taste buds and mind to the Caribbean while eating at work.

Although a very simple meal prep, this combination of protein and heart-healthy fats from the salmon, plus your carbs (fruits and veggies) from the salsa and roasted Brussels sprouts, is satisfying enough to carry you through the afternoon without leaving you feeling sluggish. Can we all agree that a heavy, post-lunch feeling during the summer heat is the worst?!

I decided to meal prep these in GoodCook teal meal prep containers because it was the perfect portions for the main ingredients. The Brussel sprouts are served on the 1 cup side (which is the amount of veg you should have per meal) and then added the crispy salmon cakes and mango salsa to the 2 cup compartment.

Although it is easy to tell which side is which, GoodCook® also embossed the compartment sizes on each as a reminder. I am all for less brainwork during meal prep! And, like the red containers, the teal color just makes eating more enjoyable! Pretty meals served in pretty containers just make for a better eating experience, IMO. 😋

Like the other containers, these also come in a set of 10, so you are ready for 2 meals per day for 5 days or 1 meal per day for you and a partner. They are also microwave, freezer, and dishwasher friendly, plus BPA free.

The recipes for using these containers are endless, too! From freezer friendly Hawaiian Chicken Tenders to breakfast hash and eggplant lasagna, the possibilities for these containers are endless!

So, grab your containers, and jump right into this or one of the other delicious recipes for this week’s meal prep!
