“I don’t even like salmon, but I like this!?” is something I have heard more than once since I started cooking this recipe. A perfect recipe for salmon, the combination of our Raging River seasoning, fresh salmon, and a maple butter glaze is sure to delight you and your guests – even those that think they don’t like salmon!
Health benefits of salmon are proven, and the flavor is buttery and unique. More and more folks are enjoying the benefits of this healthful fish, and farm-raised salmon is what you are likely to find. According to National Geographic, only 3.5 million of the world’s 300 million Atlantic salmon are wild. So if you have access to good fresh wild salmon, it is highly recommended. But as you can see from the numbers, the farm-raised variety is what most folks have available. Make sure it is fresh, does not have gaps in the flesh, is firm, and does not smell fishy. Ask the person behind the counter if you can have a smell. They will usually let you, and you can tell right away if it is not fresh. Avoid buying the pre-wrapped fish from the case. Go right for the counter and get the fresh stuff on ice.
