Healthy Frozen Salmon Recipes

These frozen salmon recipes are important to have in your arsenal of quick weeknight meals.

The advent of these individually packaged fillets of salmon, cod, Mahi-Mahi, tilapia, or any other fish really makes is so easy to have a pantry with a healthy meal ready to go.

I love salmon’s flavor and it is so good on its own that you don’t need to dress it up unlike other bland fish (I am looking at you, Cod). It isn’t necessary to pour butter over it or deep fry it to have it be delicious.

The best news is that you don’t have to thaw it before you cook it for great results. Thawed salmon does cook faster, but not much and it makes it easier if you forgot to toss the filet in the fridge before you ran out to work (or wherever).

I like salmon in all forms - raw (sushi), smoked, baked, grilled, and thinly sliced on my toast. If you are trying to eat more Omega 3 fatty acids - salmon is your fish. The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two 3.5 ounce servings of fatty fish (like salmon) every week.

I also take a fish oil supplement to up my fatty acids. My brand is Nordic Naturals which is expensive but supposed to be without contaminants and high quality. Hey, if it stops me from having a heart attack - I am happy to pay for it.

I do look at the brand of salmon that I am buying to ensure that there is an eco-certification of some sort. The farmed fishing industry has undergone some big changes and has proven that it can grow fish in a sustainable and ecological way. I am thankful for all of the hard work that scientists and environmentalists have done to ensure that the environmental impact of fish farms is low. But, of course, there are still parts of the world that are polluting so be aware.

Thanks, Lisa. I just saw a bag of frozen cod filets and thought about it...but didn't buy it. Now, I will rethink it. :)

Thanks for the tip! I love salmon and I usually top it with a fruit compote, chutney or an agave sauce with spices. I just can't have it without a sweet topping. It really goes with salmon great and brings out the flavor.

Hi Lisa, love having frozen salmon, my favorite, and flounder or tilapia for my husband in the freezer. I cook them both in the oven at 425 for 12-13 minutes. So easy! The flounder gets a little salt, pepper and a little olive oil on top in a greased pan and I bake the salmon with a teaspoon of pesto on top from the Mediterranean bar at Wegmans. I purchase the pesto, about 1/2 cup, freeze in dollops of 1 tsp. on wax paper and then into the freezer in small freezer bag. Ready to go when I need it. Delicious dinner!

POACHED salmon is to die for. Place frozen filet in a skillet, add water, can add sliced or quartered lemon if prefer, cover and steam!within 7-9 minutes it is done! you do not even need to flip it. I just touch it with my finger if its soft it still needs to cook some more.
I eat it hot or chilled over a bowl of greens!
Great article.
I get my salmon at walmart or local grocer.
Even walmart frozen salmon is great. I usually buy fresh and freeze it for later. (bigger pieces)
