Get your Omega 3’s from Salmon

I’ve been cooking salmon quite a bit these days.  It’s an excellent source of Omega 3 and high on the list of Arthritis Kitchen favorites.  When buying salmon I choose fresh wild salmon exclusively.  To me, farmed salmon is not an option.  Really fresh fish needs very little preparation in order to make it into something amazing.  For this piece of sockeye simply place skin side down in a shallow pan.  Season with salt, pepper, top with lemon slices and fresh dill.  Place in a preheated 400 degree oven and bake for 10 – 15 min depending on thickness.  Watch carefully as to not overcook the fish.  I served this with sautéed kale, roasted winter squash and some rice.  Simple and nutrient rich.  Have extra lemon on hand to squeeze on top at the end when plating.

  1. Mmm, that salmon dish looks excellent. What is also excellent is that you’ve opted for fresh wild salmon. You’re right, it tastes better and it’s also much higher in omega-3 oils than farm-bred salmon. Farmed salmon are fed a much different diet than what wild salmon eat and therefore don’t contain the same nutrients.

    Thanks for sharing. Definitely going to pair salmon with kale next time. 🙂
