Whole Side of Atlantic Salmon
Bright orange flesh, silver black skin. Generally quite thick in the belly section, thinning out towards the tail. Pieces from the belly are generally considered to be of superior quality.
Firm texture, fleshy meat.
Salmon is extremely rich in omega 3 oils, which are not only beneficial for overall health, also ensure the fish remains quite moist. Salmon is a fairly full flavoured, robust fish.
Salmon lends itself to baking, grilling and steaming. It is also suitable for being served as sashimi. Be careful not to over cook as it can dry out and become chewy if cooked for too long.
The Salmon we serve is a farmed fish, sourced from respected aquaculture farmers on the east coast of Tasmania.
