Wild Alaskan Salmon

One of my favorite cooked (and even raw) fish to eat is salmon, also known as the King of Fish according to some sources. Salmon is a great source of protein and also has Omega-3 fatty acid that supports your overall health.

I bought this salmon fillet at Trader Joe’s freezer section. TJ has variety of fish in stock in the Boston store, although I think the variety could be better. They have salmon year long, though, so that’s definitely a plus.

I defrosted the salmon before cooking. I simply left it out on the kitchen counter for about half a day. I wanted to make it Japanese shake (or salmon) style, so this was an easy salty salmon recipe, with some colorful garnish on the top!


Wild Alaskan Salmon

Red onion, quarter of an onion, diced

Tomato, half of a medium size, diced

Green pepper, half, diced

Olive oil, 1 tablespoon (for salmon)

Olive oil, 1 teaspoon (for vegetables)

Lemon pepper



1. defrost the salmon

2. heat up a pan with olive oil

3. cook the salmon fillet with skin side down first, sprinkle some salt. Once half the salmon looks cooked, turn it over, and salt it once again.

4. in the mean time, chop up your veggies and put them in a bowl. Add olive oil and lemon pepper (from Trader Joe’s!)

5. once the fish looks cooked, put it on a plate and garnish with the vegetables!
