Fish Facts: Salmon is known to be one of the most nutrient dense foods. Loaded with omega 3, vitamin D, vitamin B (5&6), and high-quality protein. Salmon are also anadromous, which means they are born in fresh water, migrate to salt water, and then return to freshwater to spawn. Spawning is typically the last stage in a salmon’s life cycle.
Taste/Cooking: As salmon is considered an oily fish, it is often described as having a medium fat content and flavour intensity. The texture is tender and flakey with a rich, buttery finish. These profiles can differ slightly depending on the breed of salmon and method of harvesting. Preferred cooking methods include smoking, baking, grilling, and poaching. This fish would pair well with our house made fresh Herb Mix, Garlic & Dill, Teriyaki and Sesame, Jamiacan Jerk, Miso Paste, Cajun seasoning, and others.
