Today (1/20), Whole Foods Market is hosting a one-day sale on wild-caught Marine Stewardship Council-certified sockeye salmon for $7.99/lb – a savings of nearly 50 percent! Sourced from the great runs in Alaska, Whole Foods Market’s sockeye salmon is hand-selected by their own port buyers at the peak of the season, then packed and frozen exclusively for their seafood cases to stock during the winter months.
Whole Foods Market maintains the highest standards for seafood quality and sustainability. They prohibit treating their fish with preservatives, and your salmon purchase supports healthy ocean ecosystems, too. In addition, their fish are tracked to ensure that they come from the correct, certified fishery.
If you’d like some ideas of what to cook with your Sockeye Salmon, Whole Foods offers some delectable recipes:
• Roasted Salmon and Broccoli with Lemony Whole Wheat Linguine
• Spice-crusted Roast Salmon with Ginger Beets
• Honey Mustard Salmon Salad
• Citrus-Marinated Grilled Salmon with Tabbouleh Salad
• Roasted Salmon and Grapes
If you’d like a simple (and fast!) dinner, grab a container of the Ginger Miso Dressing, found in the Sushi Section at Whole Foods. Then, bake or pan-fry your salmon and dollop a little of the dressing on top of it. Serve it with some veggies and rice, and you’ll have a quick, healthy meal!
