Seafood Specials: Great Recipes that Help Save Oceans
Recipes from NRDC's home cooks and a few of our chef friends help you take the guesswork out of serving a healthy, feel-good seafood meal.
~ Claxton Francis, NRDC director of information technology, New York
- 1 pound wild Alaskan salmon fillet
- 1/2 cup honey mustard
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
Note: Make sure the salmon is wild-caught from Alaska. Farmed salmon can contain PCBs and antibiotic residue. Salmon farming also pollutes the ocean, and escaped farmed fish can spread diseases to wild fish.
- Whisk olive oil together with honey mustard and spread over the fish. Marinate for at least one hour (overnight is best).
- Place the fillet in a baking pan and sprinkle thyme over the top.
- Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes./li>
If you can't get fresh thyme, chopped scallions work nicely, too.
I always get my fish straight from the docks in Freeport, Long Island. They fly wild-caught salmon in from Alaska and fillet it right there for you.
