Enjoy 7 salmon dinners that are slammin’. MORE+ LESS-

Did you know “salmon” is actually the common name for a whole family of fish including trout, char and whitefish?

Salmon are typically anadromous, meaning they’re born in fresh water but live most of their lives in the ocean. They only hoof it back to fresh water to make little fish babies.

As a food, salmon is chock-full of good stuff. It’s loaded with protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D. That’s pretty sweet, right?

You just learned a boatload about salmon (ahaha!). But what’s the best way to eat them? You know I’d never leave you hanging. Check out this list of amazing recipes that will make all the fishes extra delicious!

Lime, honey and red pepper sauce combine with the tropical flavor of mango for a wonderfully flavored dish. As if that’s not awesome enough, you can cook this outside on the grill.
