Sometimes you want sweet, and sometimes you want savory. And other times… well, you want a little bit of both. Guess what, with this easy recipe for Honey and Soy wild Alaska Salmon you get the sweet taste of honey and the savory flavors of soy and garlic. The aroma is amazing and the entire family will be excited over the Sockeye salmon baking in the oven.
Now the cool thing about Sockeye salmon is that it has 4.7 grams of fat per serving, but the majority of its fat content is made up of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which are healthier than the saturated fat found in many meat products. Plus, the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, two particularly beneficial forms of fat found in sockeye salmon, are really good for your bones and your heart. Plus, Wild Alaska Salmon Day is on August 10th – WOOT!
Nutrition packed with loads of tasty flavors? Yes, please! So without further adieu let me introduce you to my easy recipe for Honey and Soy wild Alaska Salmon. This dish is inspired by Alaska Seafood, with the flavors of soy sauce, honey, and fresh minced garlic baked right in.
