Need a quick & easy dinner recipe that’s healthy too? You’ll love this wild Alaska Teriyaki glazed salmon salad recipe. Not only can you get this dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes, you’ll feel good feeding it to your family.
One of the main reasons I’m loving this wild Alaska Teriyaki glazed salmon salad recipe is because it’s so easy to make. No lie, you can have this meal ready in less than 30 minutes. It’s such an easy way to keep those clean eating new year’s resolutions! Another reason I’m obsessed is because all seafood caught in Alaska is sustainable. As someone who is concerned with her environmental footprint, this is a huge plus!
I’m also pretty happy that Alaska seafood offers extensive health and nutrition benefits with loads of minerals, vitamins and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that the average American consume 8 ounces of seafood per week. This is a fun way to swap out your meat on meatless Monday.
While I’ve been environmentally conscious since high school, I’ve recently become even more aware of the importance of eating sustainably caught seafood. Since I love seafood so much, I want to make sure I’m buying sustainably caught seafood so I can continue to enjoy it for many years to come. I don’t want to live in a world where we have no seafood due to overfishing.
Want to know some really cool facts about wild Alaska seafood? Sustainable seafood is so important to Alaska that it’s the only state with sustainability written into it’s constitution! The state has a system of checks and balances at the state, federal, and international level to set sustainable fishery standards high. Each season, Alaska only harvests as much as the environment can handle. This allows for the marine ecosystem to replenish the seafood species year after year.
Time for that recipe, right?
It’s such a simple recipe because all you need to do is buy already seasoned and marinated wild Alaska salmon and put it over a bagged Asian salad. That easy!
The salmon bakes for about 14 minutes while I prepared the salad.
This recipe is so easy for a busy weeknight when you want a healthy fish dinner, but don’t have the time to make it from scratch. Bagged salad and frozen fish make this meal table ready in 30 minutes or less!
- 1 package (15.2 oz.) frozen Alaska fried pollack
- 1 package (6.75 oz. each) Mexican-style chopped salad kit with dressing
- 1 avocado chopped
- 1/2 tomato chopped
- 1/4 red onion chopped
- Cook pollock according to manufacturer’s directions. Cool slightly.
- Divide salad mix and toppings among two large bowls/plates; top with the fish and vegetables. Serve with the packaged salad dressing.
To make sure you are eating sustainable seafood, always ask for Alaska at the seafood counter or restaurant. Look for “Alaska” on packaging and menus too. Use #AskForAlaska on social media (you know I will!)
