Here’s a favorite Barbeque Salmon recipe from Keeley Dowling, a member of Sky Blue Football Club in New Jersey. The recipe is family-friendly and a yummy way to boost your intake of health-protective omega-3 fats that help fight inflammation. If you enjoy one salmon meal a week, along with another fish meal (such as tuna for lunch), you'll be able to consume the American Heart Association's recommended intake of omega-3's -- without taking fish oil pills!


This winning recipe is one of many that you might enjoy in my new Food Guide for Soccer: Tips and Recipes from the Pros, co-authored with Gloria Averbuch. The easy-reading, how-to book answers the questions soccer parents and soccer athletes have about what and when to eat for high energy and top performance.



Keeley Dowling’s Barbeque Salmon

When Sky Blue FC Defender Keeley Dowling worked at a sports complex in Tempe, Arizona, the chef cooked this recipe. That chef taught Keeley to cover the entire piece of salmon with barbeque sauce, so it completely blankets the fish; the thicker the better!

Keeley strongly recommends Sweet Baby Ray’s Original BBQ Sauce. It blends very nicely with the salmon, so much so that folks who normally don’t like fish will enjoy this meal. This recipe goes nicely with asparagus and rice.


½ to 1 cup Sweet Baby Ray’s Original BBQ Sauce

1 lb. salmon


1. Preheat oven to at 400º F.

2. Place salmon in a baking dish lined with foil (to simplify clean-up).

3. Cover the salmon entirely with Sweet Baby Ray’s Original BBQ Sauce.

4. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes. The fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
