Moink In The Wild: Maple Honey Glazed Salmon

We were happy to partner with Karen at Momma Chef for this delicious and easy Maple Honey Glazed Salmon recipe!

When the folks at Moink asked me if I would consider creating a recipe using one of their ethically-sourced meats, I immediately went to their website to find out more about this company.  After about 30 seconds on their page, I could see this was a great fit for Momma Chef!

All of Moink’s beef and lamb is grass-fed and grass-finished. The chicken, beef, lamb and pork are pasture-raised. Moink meats do NOT contain: Antibiotics, Growth Hormones, Genetically Modified Grains, Artificial Colors or Solutions, Sugar, or Nitrites/Nitrates. You also have the option of choosing a box with salmon, which is sustainably wild-caught in Alaska. All their meats come from small family farms with humane treatment of animals and sustainable practices. I will go more into their fully customizable boxes down below.

Now, where was I to start? I went to Moinkbox.com and clicked on “try a box”. They have 4 customizable boxes to choose from and you can even swap out the cuts you do not want for the ones you do; each box has 13-16 lbs. of meat which works out to less than $4.50 serving. The shipping is always free! I went with the “Beef, Chicken and Salmon” box and knowing how much my kids love salmon, I swapped out some of the meat for extra salmon filets. My box consisted of: 1 Beef Tenderloin Kabob Meat (1lb); 1 Flank Steak (1lb); 1 1.75-2lbs Large Salmon Filet; 2 Small Salmon Filet (8-13oz); 1 French Ribeye (16- 20 oz.); 1 Beef Chuck Roast ; 1 Ground Beef 85/15 (1lb); 1 Chicken Drumsticks (1.5lbs); 1 Boneless & Skinless Chicken Breast (1lb).

After about 1 week my box arrived, all of the chicken, meat, and salmon were still completely frozen, so I snapped a couple of photos and put the meat in the freezer. I had to decide what new recipe I would create using my wild-caught Alaskan salmon. I settled on Maple Honey Glazed Salmon, and it was a big hit. The quality of the salmon was outstanding, there was no “fish” smell and all my kids loved this dish!

For those that do not cook salmon often, I will let you in on a little secret; salmon is not only delicious, it is rich in omega-3 fats which help boost your brain and cardiovascular health. I loved that this product is sustainably wild-caught in Alaska and immediately frozen to be shipped.

And like all of Momma Chef’s creations, this recipe is quick, easy and scrumptious. With only 4 ingredients, you can whip this up in under 5 minutes prep time!
