Wild-Caught Sweet-n-Sassy Sockeye Salmon on Salad w Honey Avocado Mustard Dressing

I admit, 6 months ago I wouldn’t have had the courage to cook wild-caught salmon whole, but, today, I do. And, guess what? It’s wonderfully easy. Easy. Easy. Easy.

Plus, bonus, buying a whole wild-caught sockeye (or king) salmon is cheaper than buying it in pieces. I buy my wild-caught sockeye (and king) salmons from Vital Choice. I opt for the boneless with skin-on. They have an amazing product and fabulous customer service. I called them recently to ask them what to do with the prawns I bought from them. The gal on the phone told me step by step. Awesomeness.

This recipe doesn’t require much work at all.

My 4-year old loved it. My husband loved it. I loved it. Say no more.

Wild Caught Salmon with weird looking pureed red potatoes.

As frequently requested, here is another food journal. :)


Kamea: organic strawberries. Wild caught Roe. Raw organic pecans. Raw organic cashews. Grass fed organic beef summer sausage. Chlorella. Organic rice crackers. 2 tiny squares Dark (85%) chocolate. An hour later she also ate a Kits organic bar.

Me: BulletProof coffee


Kamea and me: Leftover pasture raised organic chicken and vegetable soup. Butter Almond Flour Cookies.


Kamea and me: Baked Cilantro Lime Salmon (I like having fresh cilantro when we have wild caught salmon, because the salmon has some mercury in it. The cilantro helps combat the mercury). Mashed red potatoes with sautéed onions and grass fed butter. Homemade chocolate ice cream.

How To Thaw And Store Fish

by Kristen Suzanne in fish, wild caught salmon

I buy my fish from two sources in most cases: 1) the farmer market and 2) online through Vital Choice. In either case, it means that my fish arrives frozen.

I was watching Alton Brown one night and he was doing a whole show on the importance of “wild caught” fish like salmon (better for the environment, better for the fish, and better for you). During the show he demonstrated a great way to thaw fish (or store your fresh fish). Here’s the gist of it…
