Alaskan Salmon is a wonderful fish and so good for you, rich in omega 3 fatty acids, and full of flavor. It is an excellent source of phosphorous, niacin and vitamins B6 and B12, a good source of thiamin and niacin. It contains 1825 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per 3 oz serving.
This is a very simple dish and really brings out the taste of the fish


  • Salmon steaks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Marinate the salmon in olive oil, lemon juice, cup fresh tarragon and salt and pepper to taste for about one hour.
  2. Pan fry the salmon in the marinade with a lid to poach for about 7 min on each side.

Serving Suggestion:

We served it with cream potatoes with chopped cilantro, streamed broccoli and sauteed swiss chard, for which there is a recipe below.
