Omega-3 Bomb: Wild Salmon with Buttered Kale


The National Institutes of Health recommends an omega-3 daily intake of 1.6 grams for men and 1.1 grams for women. Omega-3 cannot be synthesized by the body itself so it must be obtained through diet. On top of fish oil capsules, nuts and vegetables such as walnuts, grass-fed butter, flax seeds and deep-sea fish also contain such unsaturated fatty acids.

You’ll find an abundance of omega-3 fatty acids in fatty fish, such as our feature salmon.

The bottom line

We can’t guarantee upping your omega-3s, will help you live until 110 or 120, but it probably won’t hurt your quest. Omega-3s are associated with dozens of health benefits, so eat your  salmon and sprinkle extra flax seeds into your smoothie.
While we know salmon is a wonderful source of omega fatty acids. WILD Salmon is an exceptional source of omega-3 fat, and it’s even better topped with a bit of grass-fed butter. Lemon lends the acidity, cutting the richness of the fatty fish, then add your fresh herbs to add flavor and antioxidants. Fantastic taste, healthy and easy…so here’s a great recipe to get your omega-3’s down the hatch!
Serves: 2          a great way to impress on date night…

Wild Salmon with Buttered Kale Recipe



  1. Preheat oven to 320F.
  2. Place the salmon fillets on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Rub with 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil, season with sea salt, and top with any left over butter or coconut oil.
  3. Wrap the parchment around the salmon, folding the seams, and tucking them to make sure the steam doesn’t escape.
  4. Bake until fish is medium rare for approximately 18 minutes.
  5. While fish is baking, steam kale until just wilted for about 3 minutes.
  6. Drain kale, add 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil, salt to taste, and plate. Put the salmon on top, and sprinkle with chopped herbs and fresh-squeezed lemon. Serve.
