{pan-seared wild-caught salmon}

13 Feb


i love salmon! and although it’s not in season just yet, i try to eat it at least twice a month, but ideally i would like to get back to consuming it once a week or more. it’s full of omega 3 fatty acids and healthy lean protein. this particular wild-caught salmon filet was hand-delivered to me by an alaskan fisherman! 🙂

my favourite way to prepare salmon is to pan-sear it. don’t be intimidated, it’s a very easy method.

i simply sprinkle my salmon filet{s} with a little S&P and squeeze a little lemon juice over it, as well.

then, start with a medium-high heat skillet coated with a little olive oil, and place salmon filet in skin-side up. cook for 4-5 minutes, then flip over and finish with skin-side down, another 4-5 minutes. cooking it this way usually allows for the filet to come up easily off the skin when serving. i like to serve mine over a bed of greens or a simple couscous recipe.

bon appetite!

when i was eating vegan i wondered how to get my omegas in my diet because i noticed when i took fish oil it gave me heartburn and i didn’t like the way it tasted.  i haven’t gone back to fish oil since discovering flax oil. now – it’s not anything new to me, i’ve always known about flax…  i just didn’t supplement with it until recently when it was suggested to me that i take it versus the fish oil.


omegas are good for our hair, skin, nails, heart, blood, and brain… among many other things.  they help us stay “lubricated” and give our skin a lovely glow.  i take flax oil by the capsule daily, but i love being able to buy the whole seeds in bulk such as this…. Continue reading
