We received a quick note from a Whole Foods representative regarding a one-day sale on wild- caught Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)- certified Sockeye Salmon this Friday, December 7th at $7.99/lb (almost a 50% savings) !!

Whole Foods Sockeye Salmon are hand-selected by their port buyers at the peak of the season.  It is certified sustainable by the MSC, meaning salmon populations are relatively abundant, fishing methods have minimal impact on the ecosystem and the fishery is managed effectively to maintain sustainability.  Also, the MSC’s chain of custody certification means that the fish are fully traceable from fishery to Whole Foods.

Mark and I for some reason always get our salmon at Jacks Fish Spot in Pike Place Market (only if Jack is working) otherwise Whole Foods seriously does have a great seafood selection…fresh, variety and friendly service.

Here are a couple recipes they recommend:

Spice-crusted Roast Salmon with Ginger Beets
Honey Mustard Salmon Salad
Citrus- Marinated Grilled Salmon with Tabbouleh Salad

Our recipe to follow!
