5 Wild Salmon Recipes That You Have to Try

Wild salmon is not only delicious, but it's also incredibly healthy. This fish is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain and heart health, as well as protein, vitamins, and minerals. If you want to incorporate more salmon into your diet, here are five wild salmon recipes that you absolutely have to try out for yourself.

Before we dive into the recipes, let's talk about some cooking tips and tricks to ensure that your salmon turns out perfectly every time. First, always start with high-quality wild salmon from a reputable source of sustainable wild salmon. We offer wild salmon that are sustainably sourced and of the highest quality.

When cooking salmon, there are several methods you can use, including grilling, baking, poaching, and pan-searing. The key is to cook it just until it's done - overcooking can lead to dry salmon. A good rule of thumb is to cook the salmon for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness, or just until it starts to flake. You can also use a meat thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature of the salmon reaches 145°F.

Now, let's get to the recipes!
