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.

  1. We made this for dinner tonight and it was SO good.  We used the Costco rice cauliflower and it worked great.  This is going into our rotation!
