Whip up this amazing honey sriracha salmon in just 8 minutes. All you need are 4 ingredients to make this protein-packed dinner that everyone will love!
I love posts like today because I get to talk about an amazing Minnesota-run company called Surrender Salmon! You may not know this about FFF, but we don’t parter with every brand that comes our way. Actually, we don’t partner with most brands that approach us for sponsorships because a lot of time it just isn’t a good fit. For example, we may not support the ingredients in their product or what their brand stands. It could be really great money (yes, I am running a business), but if it doesn’t align with our mission then it’s not something I can authentically stamp with my name on. And no, I’m not being paid for today’s post — I just love my local MN companies that are doing good in the community. I want my name all over that shit :D
Lin and I met with founder, Grant Niver, at one of our favorite coffee shops in the North Loop a few weeks ago. He is an Alaskan born man now living in Minneapolis running Surrender Salmon on the side. Grant, his brothers, and his dad are actually the fishermen catching this amazing wild Alaskan salmon and bringing it over to Minnesota. I want to stress WILD because most salmon (even “organic”) is farm raised. Wild salmon is rich in calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and DHA. What I love about SS is that they’re taking out the middle man. It’s fishermen selling directly to us. Not to mention it’s some of the most amazing salmon I’ve ever tasted! Grant explained to us why his salmon doesn’t have that fishy smell or taste and it’s because they bleed the fish right away and place it directly in a refrigerator on the boat after it’s caught. Then, they flash freeze and vacuum seal it!
Typically when I’m making salmon, I like to pat out some of the moisture (see above photo). For this recipe, all you need is FFF’s famous honey sriracha sauce (honey + sriracha + tamari). Mix up your sauce and then spread it right on top, making sure you wipe up what gets on the pan because you’ll be using the broil setting on your oven!
Don’t be afraid of broil! It’s about to be your best friend because this salmon is done in 8 minutes. 8 MINUTES.
We served ours with some white sticky rice and Asian green beans. YES TO THE PLEASE.
