It’s time for What To Make With What’s On Sale! This week, Albertson’s has a great deal on wild caught Alaska Sockeye Salmon: $6.99/lb! While that price is fairly common for farm raised salmon, we don’t often see wild caught salmon go that low.
Wild caught salmon is nutritionally superior to farm raised, mainly because it has a healthier balance of fatty acids. It’s also higher in protein than its farm raised counterpart. And, in my opinion, wild caught just tastes better!
Here are some ideas for what to make with wild salmon!
A popular method of cooking salmon this time of year is on the grill. This Honey-Ginger Grilled Salmon recipe uses a simple marinade to add extra flavor to the salmon before grilling.
This recipe for Grilled Salmon with Honey Mustard Brown Sugar Crust looks tasty, too, and doesn’t require a marinade. The combination of honey mustard and brown sugar produce a thick, sweet and tangy crust on the fish.
If you prefer to cook indoors, here’s an easy, five-ingredient recipe from Tasty Kitchen for Simple Superb Salmon. The yummy-looking photo is enough to make me want to try it!
This Paula Deen recipe for Salmon Burgers uses panko, which is a Japanese style bread crumb that’s lighter and crispier than regular bread crumbs. The panko in the burgers gives them a nice crunchiness. You can find panko at most major grocery stores now, although it’s typically cheaper at Asian markets.
If you’re not into eating salmon on a bun, the recipe also works great for making salmon cakes. Try topping the cakes with this recipe for Easter Grass Slaw, or with your favorite coleslaw.
Another great way to use salmon in the summertime is in a green salad.
This recipe for Summer Salmon Salad is a colorful, refreshing, super-nutritious treat, especially in the warmer months. It’s easily modified depending on your family’s taste preferences!
