I favor salmon recipes because they’re quick to prepare and salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which can help reduce inflammation.
Wild salmon is preferable to farm-raised because of the fish meal often given to fish raised on farms. The fish meal is often made of ingredients like animal by-products from the milling and food processing industries or contains additives to color the salmon flesh.
When shopping for salmon, look for a fish that was caught in the wild and is free of preservatives. Marketers like to try and trick you, so always look for the word “wild” as opposed to “Atlantic” or “Pacific”. Naming the waters they were raised in can be a way to trick you into thinking the fish is wild. For more information on shopping for fish, check out my friend Lisa’s article, “How to Select Real Seafood.”
Delicious Teriyaki Salmon comes together in a matter of minutes. I like to serve it with Cauliflower Fried “Rice”, or I sometimes chop up extra vegetables with the bell pepper for a more colorful meal.
