Super Easy Broiled Salmon

post signature

We have been eating a ton of wild caught salmon filets lately and loving it!  For someone that grew up fishing the Gulf of Mexico this is astounding.  

Here's why!

  • Research suggests that eating oily fish once or twice a week may increase your lifespan by more than two years, and reduce your risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by 35 percent
  • Compared to those in the lowest percentiles, those with omega-3 blood levels in the highest 20 percent were 27 percent less likely to die of any cause; 40 percent less likely to die of coronary heart disease, and 48 percent less likely to die of an arrhythmia
  • If you want to maximize health benefits from fish, steer clear of farmed fish, particularly farmed salmon, and even more specifically genetically engineered farmed salmon, which may end up being approved within the next two years—especially if you’re seeking to improve your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio
  • The ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fat of wild salmon is far superior to farmed. Whereas farmed salmon has a 1-1 ratio of omega-3s and omega-6s (due to its “junk food” diet), the ratio for wild sockeye salmon is between 6 and 9 to 1, which is a more ideal ratio
  • Avoid Atlantic salmon, as salmon labeled "Atlantic Salmon" typicallly comes from fish farms. Look for “Alaskan salmon,” and “sockeye salmon,” as Alaskan sockeye is not allowed to be farmed and is therefore bound to be wild. Source
My daughter gave me this fool-proof, super delicious broiled Salmon recipe.  Trust me, NO ONE can mess this up!!!  It's so easy, it's a tad embarrassing to even devote a post to it, but here it is!!  The key with the perfection of this recipe is that you put the salmon in a COLD oven, then turn it on and set your timer. CANNOT FAIL!!  Comes out perfect, moist and delicious!
