Having grown up in New England, I learned to love seafood at a very early age. There are very few seafood dishes that I don’t absolutely love. Which is a great thing because seafood is incredibly good for you! If you need healthy seafood recipes, this sweet chili Alaska Salmon bowl recipe is the perfect addition to your meal plan!

Why Choose Alaska Salmon
One thing you need to be aware of when choosing your seafood is how and where it was caught. Sometimes this means reading the package label and other times you may have to ask your fish monger (ie the guy behind the fish counter!) where is it from.
Usually, I am pretty good about this but even I get caught unaware sometimes. I realized this week that the ‘wild caught’ salmon I WAS getting actually came from China! Next time, I need to read the fine print. I want the seafood I eat to be caught as close to home as possible as well as being sustainably harvested.

Responsibly Sourced Salmon
Look for the designation ‘Alaska salmon’ to make sure that the salmon you eat has been responsibly sourced. Any species of Alaska seafood you buy is sustainably caught. That includes Alaska pollock, salmon, crab, halibut, cod and more.
Alaska only harvests as much fish as the environment can handle. That allows the marine ecosystem to continue to replenish year after year. This is actually written into the state’s constitution! Seriously! How cool is that!
There are healthy and not-so-healthy ways to prepare your seafood. ( I admit, my homemade salmon au gratin is probably not as healthy as it should be but it is DELICIOUS!) The average American should consume 8 ounces of seafood per week. Baking, grilling, and sauteing are better for you than better frying.
But, no matter how you cook it, seafood is loaded with healthy nutrients. Seafood from Alaska is an ideal protein choice that is naturally loaded with minerals, vitamins and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Omega’s are very important for so many of our body’s systems!
