Luckie’s Quick Tips: Wild Sockeye Salmon
- Great source of protein for satiety and muscle growth/repair
- Good source of heart healthy unsaturated (“good”) fats
- Solid source of Omega 3
- Good source of Vitamin D
1 whole wild sockeye salmon fillet with skin on (at about 4 – 6 oz per person, one side of sockeye will generally feed 4 to 6 people)
Fresh herbs of your choice (dill, chives, etc)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Pour a a little olive oil into a small dish. If you choose to add fresh garlic, smash a clove and add it to the oil.
- Lay the sockeye out on a baking sheet and pat it dry with a kitchen towel, wiping off any stray scales.
- Finely chop the fresh herb of your choice.
- Drizzle or brush the oil onto the flesh side of the fish, coating it lightly.
- Sprinkle sea salt lightly but thoroughly over the oil—be sure to use the fine salt so that it melts into the oil and forms a nice glaze. Sprinkle on your herbs.
- Bake for about 10 minutes. Around minute 7 or 8, check on it. If you see white specks rising on the surface of the fish, it is ready!
