- Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and peppers. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, just until tender.

Recipe Note – Often canned salmon will also contain some bones; don’t be discouraged! These calcium rich goodies crush very easily and add valuable nutrition when mixed all together.
