Sitka Salmon Shares (SSS) is an Alaska and North Pacific-based cooperative of small boat fishermen dedicated to sustainable seafood practices and providing premium Alaskan cuisine directly to consumers’ doorsteps.
Marinating salmon before grilling may not be necessary, but doing so helps the fish retain moisture and flavor. A simple marinade made up of fats and acids in a 3:1 ratio works well – I often use olive oil (the fat), Dijon mustard (the acid) and aromatic spices like paprika or garlic powder (for aromatic).
Make sure that the grates are free of debris and heated to an “extra hot” temperature before adding your salmon; this helps it stick less and cook evenly.
Once the fish is finished cooking for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, use a fish spatula to flip it and check its internal temperature with an instant read thermometer – it should reach 145 degrees F to be safe to consume. Serve your salmon alongside rice, quinoa or potatoes along with vegetables like asparagus, kale, Brussels sprouts or broccoli for a heartier meal topped off with creamy sauces like hollandaise, herby pesto sauce or silky lemon garlic butter sauce designed specifically for fish.
This straightforward baked salmon recipe takes only minutes to make in the oven for a healthy, tasty meal! Topped off with simple seasoning and a slice of fresh lemon for extra zesty flavour, it makes an easy weeknight dish that you won’t soon forget!
This dish uses both butter and garlic for an intensely flavorful yet light dinner option – great way to use up leftover butter! This can also serve as an easy way to reduce waste!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place fish skin side down onto a sheet pan or foil, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, and season with salt and pepper. For foil usage, fold up sides together into an envelope-style pouch to seal moisture while baking.
Bake salmon until it becomes opaque and can be cut easily with a fork, generally 12-15 minutes depending on its thickness. At its completion, internal temperatures should have reached 145 degrees F; to test this accurately use a digital meat thermometer.

Catch Sitka Salmon Shares provides this recipe, harvested directly from small-boat community fisherman across Alaska and the North Pacific who have come together to bring wild salmon directly from their boats right to your door. After being individually caught and processed at their dockside facility, all seafood is flash frozen to preserve its pristine flavor and nutrients.
Lemon Garlic Butter
Creamy lemon garlic butter sauce elevates even simple meats, fish, seafood or vegetables into an exquisite feast. It pairs particularly well with salmon but it can also add depth and dimension to sirloin steak, roasted veggies or air fryer asparagus dishes.
Passionate fisherman understand that every step in processing and handling of a fish matters. At Sitka Seafoods, each fish is hand-caught by one of our fisherman-owners or partner fishermen for filleting, before being blast frozen to maintain freshness and flavorful freshness.
Sitka Salmon Shares’ wild-caught seafood is responsibly managed to avoid overfishing and bycatch, both of which have negative impacts on ecosystems. They use fishing methods that minimize environmental harm and always use safe handling practices when handling their catch. They use techniques that minimize ecological impacts; additionally their seafood is always bled, cold-smoked for improved texture before blast-frozen to ensure the highest quality product available – they even pay their fisher-owners a fair wage so they can continue running their businesses and investing back into their communities of origin!
