The Daily Delicious: Seafood — Specifically, wild-caught salmon

As I mentioned in THIS POST, seafood is one of my FAVORITE things to enjoy in hot weather — and salmon definitely tops the list.

My Top Three Favorite Seafood “Foods”:

  • Salmon
  • Crab legs
  • Shrimp

And, all are Paleo!

I found this recipe while pa-rousing Facebook via a post from a meal-planning site I follow called “Food on the Table.” 

Though I LOVE salmon, sometimes I find I get bored with the preparation. I tend to fall back on the lemon, BUTTER and fresh dill — which is delicious, but I find I am frequently looking for new and unique ways to prepare salmon.

This recipe fits that desire perfectly!

It is a Greek-Style Baked Salmon, with Olives, and Feta!

First of all, sign me up for anything that involves Feta — or the word “Greek!”

This is one of those recipes that I looked at and thought to myself “of course!” — while at the same time, thinking “how creative!”

Six ingredients (minus the salmon) — and all whole foods. PLUS, the amazing Omega-3s you get from the wild-caught salmon.

Ahh, why wild-caught salmon, you ask?

For the answer, I refer you to Mark Sisson’s blog, “Mark’s Daily Apple.” In a post entitled “Salmon: Factory farmed vs. Wild,” he mentions salmon farms of some kind make up about 80% of salmon on the market today. In the United States, 90% by some estimates.

This leads to a crowded living environment, and salmon being fed pellets — not what they would feed off of in a natural environment (other fish!)

Thus, the salmon become fattier, which leads to a lower overall protein count, and less nutrition overall. If you’re not eating something that is healthy — you are not likely to benefit from it.

Wild-caught salmon, though expensive, is worth the money for its nutritional density and even, TASTE!

I can’t wait to try this recipe, and enjoy my salmon and my “Greek” all in one dish 🙂
