Salmon Cooking Secrets for Easy Dinner

Fish makes for a popular dinner option with plenty of nutrition benefits, but knowing how to cook it well can be challenging. Salmon in particular is full of omega-3 fatty acids which help lower triglyceride levels. Lowering the level of triglycerides in the bloodstream helps prevent heart disease. Omega-3 fatty acids also have been linked to prevention of depression and dementia, something that seniors may struggle with as they age. 

According to, one of the biggest frustrations in cooking salmon comes in the "white goo," a type of protein, that leaks out of the fish in the baking process. While fine to eat, it can muck up the appearance of a dish and make it unappetizing. Blogger Sally Mathew shares her trials with different baking times and methods to reduce the "white goo" and not overcook your fish. 

Once cooked, caregivers can pair the Baked Salmon with a favorite steamed vegetable and a whole grain couscous or pasta for a complete meal. Myfamilydish also suggests their own pesto butter as a topping for the salmon once finished cooking, but any favorite sauce can be used as a dressing. Try dijon, lemon sauce, or dill sauce as alternate toppings.  

The results of this recipe will hopefully be quite tasty and nutritionally beneficial for healthy aging for both caregivers and their senior clients. Senior care companies are looking for passionate caregivers to apply for caregiving jobs. Develop further skills as a caregiver through Caregiverlist's online training course
