Asian Baked Salmon

Can’t get enough of salmon? Salmon is known for its extraordinary amount of omega-3 fatty acid content. It is a dinner favorite but yet it is important to be informed of the good kinds of salmon that are not fished in a way that adversely affects the environment.

 

Wild Alaskan salmon is a great choice when looking for a sustainable option. Stay away from the salmon farmed in open net pens and instead move towards a more eco-friendly method. The fishery management practices in Alaska are especially efficient, which creates an abundance of Alaskan salmon.

 

As a college student, I don’t feel the need to spend tons of money on food but when I do I love treating myself to a delicious piece of salmon. Salmon can be whipped up easily for many different occasions. It is a perfect choice to serve at a dinner party or to cook for one, but don’t forget sustainable is always the better alternative!
