Roasted Salmon with Creamy Garlic Lemon Sauce
When I visited my sister a few weeks ago she made the whole family dinner. We were served some potatoes with the most tasty sauce on top of them I’d ever eaten. It had fresh garlic and lemon zest in it and it was just out of this world amazing. I decided that this particular sauce would be spectacular served over salmon. I was right! This is probably the best salmon recipe I’ve ever eaten. You must try this soon!!! Oh and guess what it is SOOOO easy. View the video below to see how easy and non-intimidating this recipe is.
The first thing you need to do is head to your local grocer and pick out some wild Alaska salmon. My grocery store had some in the frozen section but I opted for fresh this time around. I made sure to ask the fishmonger if the salmon was from Alaska and it was. I always ask for Alaska when buying fish because any species of Alaska seafood you eat is sustainably caught and wild, including delicious Alaska pollock, salmon, crab, halibut, cod and more.
I went with Alaska sockeye salmon. Alaska sockeye is known as red salmon because it has a deep red color. It has a rich salmon flavor and a firm texture. The texture makes it perfect for grilling, broiling, roasting, etc. It is – available fresh from mid-May through mid-September and frozen year-round.
Salmon tastes so good this time of year! There are so many healthy and fresh ways to prepare salmon. Make sure to celebrate Wild Alaska Salmon Day on August 10th. I know I’ll be looking for ANY reason to make this recipe again. My family certainly won’t object either.
