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!
