Summertime salmon filled dinners are my favorite! Here is one that gets me every time. Light, flavorful, and super easy! Filled with detoxifying lemon, and garlic along with some metabolism boosting butter and spices!
Remember WILD CAUGHT is the way to go. Farmed fish are being fed an unnatural diet of harmful grain, they do not produce the same nutrients that wild fish do. Due to their compact living situations and feed, they contain diseases, toxins, artificial dyes, and antibiotics. Farmed salmon are given a salmon-colored dye in their feed, without which their flesh would be an unappetizing grey color-nothing natural about that!
Dr Jockers Comments:
Wild-caught salmon is rich in the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA & DHA as well as the powerful anti-oxidant astaxanthin. It is these nutrients that give salmon their incredible strength. It is quite remarkable that they are able to swim upstream against strong rapids and jump 6-12 feet out of the water. They are by far the strongest fish pound for pound and one of the strongest creatures in the world. Consuming these nutrients gives us an advantage with renewed and improved physical energy and stamina.
Adding in the grass-fed butter/ghee and coconut oil provides more healthy fats and the butter has tons of vitamin A (retinol), vitamin E and conjugated linoleic acid that supports healthy hormone function. This also makes it creamy and adds incredible flavor!
Garlic and lemon help to support the immune system with anti-oxidants and sulfur compounds. This recipe taste amazing and provides the nutrients we need to support our bodies! My favorite sources for Wild Alaskan Salmon are through Vital Choice and US Wellness Meats. Check out their links below
