What:

  • Wild or Farm-Raised Salmon: wild is better because the fish eat a natural diet, instead of grains that farm-raised fish are fed. This makes the ratio of omega-3′s to omega-6′s better in wild fish. (Ideally, the ratio of omega fatty acids in our diets would be 3:1 (omega-6 to omega-3) but is typically closer to 30:1 in Western diets)
  • Alaska Salmon is considered the best
  • There are many varieties – try them out to find the one you enjoy the most

 

Why:

  • Great source of protein
  • Full of omega-3 fatty acids (this is a good fat that helps decrease inflammation)
  • Good source  of Vitamin D
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids in fish can help protect against heart disease and to protect against autoimmune diseases
  • It is delicious!

    I loved your apricot and dijon glazed recipe! The Bloomington Chophouse makes a delicious salmon too….that’s usually the only time I eat it, out to dinner! But I do love it. Have you ever tried Great Alaska Seafood? We have ordered seafood for dad and it’s pretty delicious…

    Farmed salmon is also treated with formalin, which contains formaldehyde. As they are kept in such close quarters they tend to get diseases and formalin treats such diseases.

    I used to work at an Atlantic salmon hatchery

    Keep preachin’! I love fish and I find that its one of the easiest meats to cook at home; particularly salmon, because even if you slightly overcook it it won’t get too tough like beef or chicken. Sadly though, so many people are reluctant or scared to make it at home… They’re missing out!

    We eat salmon at least once a week if not twice. I like to bake it with some EVOO, lemon, and ginger on the top. Salmon is my favorite food for sure!

    I love salmon- it’s my go-to fish when I’m cooking it at home. It’s also probably my favorite raw in sushi. Oh, and in lox form. Clearly, I’m a fan. I should probably branch out a little, huh? :)

    I love salmon! I like to buy it at Costco and have leftovers for the week. Salmon is tasty in an omelet with feta or cream cheese. I have never made salmon cakes before, but it is on my list of things to make.

    Salmon is definitely my favorite fish. I always get salmon sashimi when I go out for sushi. Love it with some wasbasi added to it.
    I’ve recently been enjoying canned salmon and smoked salmon. I love putting the canned salmon on my salads with cottage cheese or tzatziki

    I live in Alaska and eat a ton of salmon…
    Quick and easy: smear sriracha on top, sprinkle with panko or peanuts and bake at 500 for 5 minutes.
    OR
    There is an amazing recipe in the most recent (I think!) Best of the Best Cookbook Recipes from Food and Wine for Salmon Burgers with an asian slaw. Seriously yum.
