Top 15 Salmon Recipes to Get You Out of a Seafood Rut

There's a reason your Hy-Vee dietitian recommends eating seafood twice a week, and especially salmon. It's rich with heart-healthy omega-3s, high in protein, and really delicious. But knowing how to season and prepare it is key. The good news is, it's easier than you think.

When you see the Responsible Choice logo on Hy-Vee seafood, that means it's rated as either a "Best Choice" or "Good Alternative" by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program, or is certified to an environmental standard benchmarked to these ratings. Our Responsible Choice logo guarantees the species are abundant in the ocean or are farmed in an environmentally safe manner.

  1. Pesto Roasted Salmon

    With this keeper of a recipe, you can cook a 1-pound salmon filet with beautifully roasted beets in under 30 minutes. 

  2. Salmon with Pineapple Salsa

    Unless you love chopping up whole pineapples, we recommended buying the Hy-Vee ShortCuts pineapple chunks in the produce department. We're all about keeping it simple.

  3. Berry-Farro Salad

    Farro? Yes. This nutritious whole grain has a nice, chewy bite and is a great option if you're sick of rice. 

  4. Walnut-Crusted Salmon

    Get a double dose of omega-3s by adding walnuts to your salmon.

  5. Honey Glaze Salmon with Zoodles

    Don't have a spiralizer? That's ok, look for pre-packaged zoodles in the produce department. 

  6. Chili-Rubbed Salmon

    This one's a must-try. It's the smoky-sweet combo, and it just doesn't get much better than this recipe.
