Honey-glazed Wild Salmon

By Chad Carns

A quick and easy wild salmon recipe with high protein and low fat for after a good work out.

I love this recipe because it’s so easy to prepare. Salmon is almost impossible to overcook. It contains high-quality protein and other essential nutrients including omega 3 fatty acids. It’s also low in saturated fat.   Soy, honey, ginger and pineapple juice marinade will cut through the beautiful dark orange, almost red wild salmon, to create a perfect balance.

Wild salmon caught in the Pacific Northwest including King Salmon or Sockeye Salmon tend to be leaner than the farm-raised version. I’m a fan of both farm-raised and wild. Always inquire about the fish at your local seafood store. Your fish monger should know about the farm and product.
