Sumptuous probably isn’t the right word to describe salmon but it sounded cool. Easy is a trigger word for me when it comes to cooking and this wild caught salmon recipe is the ticket!
First off, if you’re going to eat salmon, then the best kind of salmon is wild caught salmon, especially Alaskan wild caught. You want to make sure you’re getting your salmon as close to nature as possible.
Who wants to eat garbage salmon kept on a farm that has been fed crap its whole life and is at the bottom of its genetic potential?
Second there are several very good health benefits to regularly consuming salmon. Salmon is one of the number one sources of ALA Omega-3 Fatty Acids which has been shown to improve joint health, increase cardiovascular health, increase brain function, and decrease cancer risk. (Source)
Those of you who aren’t big fans of salmon should really look at the benefits of eating it even just once a week. Plus there are several ways to prepare salmon so go ahead and experiment and see which recipe is your favorite! I’m not a big fishy food fan but this salmon I can more than tolerate (tolerate is how I’d describe most seafood).
This healthy salmon recipe that I made this week is super simple and I think it came out pretty tasty. Here is what you need:
How easy is that?! I halved this recipe for us because I’ve always found something fishy about these leftovers 🙂
My favorite side dishes with salmon are broccoli or asparagus and roasted potatoes. All you have to do with potatoes is chop them up, put them on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with olive oil and salt, and put it next to your salmon in the oven (stir once).
