Super Salmon

Do you remember a while back, when I shared with you about my love affair with meatloaf?  I professed to the fact that meatloaf alone was what would prevent me from ever being a vegetarian. 

But that was only partially true. 

As I recall, I was a vegetarian for about 2 months a couple years ago.  And then my dad grilled wild caught salmon with a sprinkle of sea salt.  I never looked back.

I’m still not much of a meat person, really, and I tend to eat more vegetarian than not.  But I will never turn down meatloaf.  And I will never say no to wild caught salmon.

Wild caught salmon has a host of health benefits (can we say omega-3’s???).  It’s also tender.  Melt in your mouth amazing.  So soft.  So perfect, that adding heavy sauces just seems downright sinful. 

I can ‘t decide what my favorite way to eat salmon is, but I’m pretty sure that eating it on top of a bed of greens would win the competition.  I like to keep things simple, and this is about as simple as it gets.  Mixed greens.  Mushrooms.  Tomatoes.  You know…just your basic, everyday kinda salad.  I “fancied” it up with some steamed asparagus and a splash of olive oil. 

Kudos to Dad for coming through as Grill Master King once again. 😀

I need to go pack…tomorrow is a busy day full of packing, driving, and entering vacation mode.  Oh yes.  I am very ready.  Very, very ready. :mrgreen:

Question: What is your favorite fish?

  1. I could eat salmon every day easily. Olive oil is good on it. As well as maple syrup. Good in the oven or on the grill.

  2. That salad reminds me a little bit of the one at Cheesecake Factory – it’s herbed salmon on a bed of greens, and has asparagus. Really good.

    Salmon’s definitely a favorite, and I’ve really been enjoying sardines on my salads lately too. I’m off again, on again with fish, but currently have been eating it every week.

  3. @lisasfoods I had that salad at The Cheesecake Factory a couple of years ago, & it was delicious! 🙂

    Where are you vacationing? It’s always exciting to get away & relax! =)

  4. Salmon is my favorite, too! In fact, I don’t really like any other seafood. 🙂 Yours look delicious – tell your dad “good job!” 😉

  5. I love salmon! I wish I had some in my freezer for tomorrow. May have to cave and go buy some…all I have is canned which just isn’t the same.

  6. My mama makes the best salmon ever! Galic, lemon juice, fresh dill and some random spices… all covered with foil and baked in the oven. It turns into such buttery meat, and the lemon juice completeley takes away that ‘fishy’ flavor (which is pretty non-existant when it comes to salmon anyway).

    It just occured to me that I’ve never introduced myself to you.. I think this is my first comment! I’ve been reading your blog for awhile, and finally decided to put my two cents in 🙂

    • Thanks so much for introducing yourself, Tat! I love hearing from readers. 😀

      Also, the salmon that your mama makes sounds amazing. Fresh dill and salmon were meant to be together, and I always forget about that combo of flavors. 😀

  7. My fish of choice would be salmon. I LOVE seasoning it lightly with blackening seasoning and then grilling it until the top gets a little crust. MMMmmmmm!

  8. Love, love, love Dad’s salmon!! I love haddock and cod the best, but I need to find some good recipes for them. Ha, ha. I don’t really like the way I cook them. Have a fun drive down to the cabin… I can’t wait to see you down there!

  9. There isn’t much else that is better than warm salmon over greens, but my easy hot-beans-over-spinach is definitely a close contender. I hope you have a safe and delicious vacation!
