Top 5 Ways to Enjoy Salmon This Summer

Salmon is one of the few fish that can be prepared and enjoyed at any time of the day. Whether you enjoy it on a breakfast bagel with cream cheese or as part of a main course, salmon makes a delicious addition to any meal. Best of all? Salmon is easy to prepare with ingredients at your local supermarket with minimal cook time.

There is a shift in focus in Alaska’s salmon harvest, from sockeye to pink salmon, as Bristol Bay winds down. Although the season has improved significantly over the past four weeks and nearly 42 million sockeye have been harvested statewide, many areas of the state are behind historical averages. Luckily, this year’s catches were larger in size, so there is still plenty of salmon for you to enjoy.

So, let’s take a look at a few of the ways you can prepare and enjoy salmon this summer:

It can be ready to serve in as little as fifteen minutes, with a simple marinade, or wrapped in foil on the grill.
