Quick Tips for Meal Prepping with Salmon
There are a thousand reasons to love salmon! The mild, flexible flavor. The deliciously flaky texture. And not only is it packed with nutrients that are difficult to find elsewhere, but it also tastes delicious when you pull it out of the fridge. That’s right – it’s one of the best catches for meal prep. And we’ve rounded up some tips to make the process even more effective. Time to get to prepping!
Don’t Shy Away From Frozen
Flash-frozen is your friend! It’s a fool-proof way for suppliers to naturally preserve the texture and flavor of your salmon while keeping it just off the dock fresh as it arrives at your door. Plus, you save trips to and from the store when you buy your frozen catches in bulk.
Don’t leave your delectable filet out on the counter to thaw! For safer results, thaw your salmon in the fridge overnight. Then fire up the grill when ready.
Bring the Heat
When possible, cook with high-heat methods like grilling or roasting. High-heat methods cook quickly but retain plenty of moisture in your seafood, so it doesn't dry out in the fridge. To keep things flavorful, season with salt, pepper, and a bit of lemon juice before cooking. This allows any sauces or flavors you add afterward to shine through without competing against heavy seasoning.
Season All the Way
Choose your flavors carefully. Getting the seasoning notes right is key with a delicate blank canvas of salmon. But, once you get it, it’s bombs away! Season generously. Save time with pre-assorted blends!
Get Your Green On
Round out your meal with veggies! Salmon pairs perfectly with hearty greens like asparagus, sprouts, and broccoli for healthy meals on the go or at home.
Soup It Up!
Whether prepped in a crockpot or on the stove, adding salmon to your favorite soup is one of the more foolproof ways to prep your seafood meal. Not only is it criminally easy, but it also retains its flavor in the fridge with the best of them.
For the best results for your health and your tastebuds, prioritize the ingredients – from your salmon to your seasoning. Ultimately, this will save you time as you can achieve a delicious result with fewer ingredients and less tweaking of the recipe.
