There's a reason your Hy-Vee dietitian recommends eating seafood twice a week — especially salmon! It's rich in heart-healthy omega-3s and high in protein, so you'll be full and satisfied after each meal. We've gathered our top 15 salmon recipes that will have you hooked on this delicious fish.
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 it's certified to an environmental standard benchmarked to these ratings. Hy-Vee's Responsible Choice logo guarantees the species are abundant in the ocean or are farmed in an environmentally safe manner.
