There’s a huge number of benefits to eating salmon. These incredibly healthy fatty fish can help lower your blood pressure, aid in weight loss, improve your memory and increase the health of your skin. It truly is a wonder food. And that’s before you get to the fact that salmon is absolutely scrumptious. Best of all, salmon is adaptable to suit almost any palate.
There are even more salmon recipes in Alaska than there are benefits to this fish, any of which will have your mouth watering in no time. Here are some of the best.
A lot of the time, when salmon is served, it is served as a filet, which is cut parallel to the fish’s spine. Salmon steaks, on the other hand, are cut perpendicular to the spine. The texture is entirely different, but the taste is no less spectacular. You can prepare a good salmon steak in any number of ways, but you can’t go wrong tossing it into a pan with some oil, butter, minced garlic and some lemon juice and cooking it for 10 minutes over medium heat.
Blackened salmon tacos
Looking for a way to mix up taco nights? This wonderful dish is a breeze to prepare. Simply brown your salmon in a pan over medium heat and crumble it into taco-sized pieces. Depending on your tastes, you can top with red onion, avocado, pineapple, tomatoes and more.
Asian BBQ grilled salmon
If you want to take a break from the tried-and-true salmon recipes in Alaska in favor of something a little more experimental, check out this tasty dish. In a large bowl, mix up hoisin sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, rice vinegar, ginger, mirin, garlic chili paste and garlic powder. Then, turn on your grill and cook your salmon as you usually would, being sure to brush your glaze onto the salmon as it cooks.
If you’ve got some time to spare, this citrus-tinted slow-cooker salmon is delicious and simple to prepare. Just line your crockpot with a piece of parchment paper, toss in a bed of lemon rounds (or lime rounds, your choice), and then put in salmon, veggie broth, salt and pepper. Your broth mixture should cover half your salmon fillets. Finish by cooking on low for two hours.
