Salmon is my go-to fish, are fantastic sources of DHA, the omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for brain development. I rotate through all my salmon recipes, some of my favorites are Maple Soy Glazed Salmon, Healthy Salmon Quinoa Burgers, Seattle Asian Salmon Bowls, and Gochujang Glazed Salmon, just to name a few!

I’ll take wild salmon over farmed any day, preferably Alaskan. I usually get disappointed when I order out because I know I can make it better. The reasons are, they usually overcook it, and many restaurants don’t have wild salmon as an option. This makes all, and I mean ALL, the difference in quality, taste and the health benefits.

Honey-Teriyaki Salmon Tips:

  • You can marinate this for 10 minutes, or as long as 8 hours.
  • If using frozen salmon, thaw in the refrigerator the night before.
  • Always buy salmon from your trusted fishmonger. It’s best to buy it fresh and freeze yourself.
