We get it. Salads don't exactly scream, "I'm a ripped dude who never skips legs day."

But these protein-rich, muscle-building salads were born to break the mold in more ways than one.

Each recipe features a different kind of canned fish (whether it's Nordic brisling sardines, premium quality fillets of Herring, or wild-caught mackerel) from King Oscar that, let's be honest, you've probably never even tried before. But trust us, it's worth taking the culinary leap.

All of King Oscar's products are sustainably caught, ridiculously convenient (literally all you have to do is pop open the can and you're ready to go), and—perhaps most important—they're high in protein and good-for-you fats, while remaining extremely low in carbs. These little suckers are especially perfect for those of you on keto or Paleo diets.

Here are four of our favorite salad recipes featuring canned fish that pack an unbelievable nutritional punch.
