|Wild Alaskan salmon are harvested by nets (drift and set gillnets, purse seine), trolling, and fishwheels. Trolling is fishing by drawing a baited line or lure behind a boat. A fishwheel operates much like a water-powered mill wheel: fish travelling upstream are caught in baskets on the wheel, then transferred into a holding tank.||The term ‘salmon’ derives from the Latin word ‘salmo,’ which is said to have originated from ‘salire’, which means ‘to leap’. This seems fitting considering salmon can jump up to two meters to cross obstacles in rivers.|
Ready to cook? Let's see what you need!
For the salmon mixture:
2 cans MSC certified Clover Leaf Salmon
1 t (5ml) chili powder
2 t (10ml) maple syrup
For the peanut sauce:
2-3 cloves of garlic
1-inch knob of ginger, peeled
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 c (65g) peanut butter
2 T (30ml) coconut aminos (or use tamari or soy sauce)
1 T (15ml) rice vinegar
1-2 t (5-10ml) Sriracha
2 T (30ml) maple syrup
Quick shake of chili flakes (optional)
Coconut milk (or almond or milk of choice)
For the salad and noodles:
Noodles (I used ramen)
Veggies (I used leafy greens, green onion, carrot, asparagus, radish, cucumber, broccoli, radicchio. Try cabbage, bean sprouts, cauliflower, peppers, and more!)

Prepare the salmon mixture. Rinse and drain Cloverleaf salmon and add to a bowl. Juice lime, add to salmon. Add chili powder and maple syrup. Set aside.
Make the peanut sauce. Throw all of the peanut sauce ingredients EXCEPT milk into a food processor. Blend until smooth. It will be thick, so slowly use milk to thin out to desired consistency. Set aside.
Assemble the salad. Cook noodles of choice as package says. Chop veggies of choice: get creative! Assemble on a large plate or into individual bowls, greens, then noodles, then the rest of the veggies. Then add salmon mixture. Pour peanut sauce over it all. Top with fresh herbs, I used cilantro, but mint or basil is also delicious.
Now add sesame seeds and chopped peanuts. Enjoy!
Now enjoy your dish in the knowledge you've helped protect our ocean.
Because sustainable seafood is...
...AND THE OCEAN
AND WE NEED OUR OCEAN TO THRIVE
|The ocean contains 80 percent of our world’s biodiversity.||The lungs of our planet, providing us with the oxygen we need.||And enough to feed over 3 billion people.|

So the next time you buy fish, remember to look for the blue fish label.
This means your seafood has been sourced by a fishery committed to protecting fish stocks, habitats, and livelihoods.
