Grilled Salmon with Alyeska BBQ Sauce

Grilled Salmon

In honor of National Fishing & Boating Week (June 1 – 8) and Father’s Day (June 15), I wanted to share a tasty Grilled Salmon with Alyeska BBQ Sauce recipe from Alaska’s premier luxury fishing lodge, Waterfall Resort and the resort’s Chef, Isaiah Phillips. The resort is gearing up for its 2014 season (June 13 – August 18), and offers the ultimate salmon fishing adventure in its unparalleled location in Ketchikan, AK. Waterfall Resort is honoring the occasion by offering 25% off its King Salmon Fishing Package through the peak of king salmon fishing season in June. Travelers will save nearly $1,000 per package, with rates starting at $2,572 for an all-inclusive three-day, two-night stay, available June 19 – June 25, 2014.

Only Five Ingredients: Healthy Salmon Salad

We eat a good bit of canned Alaskan salmon at my house. For those of you who have never tried it or are wrinkling your forehead as you read, give it a try. I particularly like “Pure Alaska Salmon” (their Pure Alaska’s “ReadHead” wild sockeye salmon and “Think Pink” pink salmon). Both are similar nutritional powerhouses since they are high in protein, calcium, Vitamin D and one of the richest sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. This recipe for Healthy Salmon Salad is too easy and only five ingredients. I love combining the sweet, tartness of raspberry balsamic vinegar with fresh dill. Enjoy this for lunch over a bed of arugula or mixed greens, or even for dinner on a warm night with pasta salad and fresh asparagus.
