Putting together an exciting dinner plan every night of the week can prove difficult. Whether you are working full-time or have a full-time schedule with the children around the house, it will take some exceptional creativity to get the family excited at mealtime seven days a week. However, if you want to get those mouths watering and provide a nutritious dinner at the same, you’ll find a lot of ways to use fresh Alaska salmon.
Known to the world as one of the finest specimen of the seas, fresh Alaska salmon is very easy to prepare and tastes so good in different recipes that it won’t be the boring type of nutrition kids will fight. Instead, you will find yourself duplicating these meals more often than not, to the demand of the entire family.
Salmon tacos topped with mango salsa: Can you think of a more enticing menu announcement to make than this one? Whether your family is a soft taco crew or one that goes for the crispy shells, it is a tough recipe to top. Simply get about one-half pound of salmon per person, along with some red peppers, onions and fresh cilantro. Sautee the vegetables in some olive oil, then add pieces of salmon after chopping the fish into cubes. After a few minutes, you’ll see all the juices take shape. Simply add this mixture to the tortillas and serve with rice. Of course, don’t put them on the table until they’ve been topped with your mango salsa and a little cilantro.
Grilled, glazed salmon with baked potatoes: Few items could be healthier and tastier than potatoes and fresh Alaska salmon. By combining the two, you’ll satisfy everyone at the dinner table. Use your grill for this recipe. Mix a concoction of butter, brown sugar, soy sauce and the juice from half a lime. Arrange the salmon into individual portions, add salt & pepper and start grilling them with the skin side up as your potatoes bake in the oven. Depending on how thick the fish is, you’ll need to flip it over in 5 or 6 minutes. Once it is skin-side down, dab on your sauce and let the flavor sink in. In another five minutes, the family will be ready to eat.
