Salmon is one of the most popular kinds of fish eaten due to its wonderfully mild smell and flavor. A fresh side of salmon is perfect for people who are newly introduced to the world of fish. The texture of salmon is silky smooth with a buttery feel. Salmon is also packed with an incredible variety of nutrients making it one of the most healthy meals one can have. Full of protein, vitamins, and nutrients, salmon is known to help ward off heart disease!
One advantage of buying a fresh salmon side is that you can choose the portion size and shape you would like your salmon filets to be. This means you can use a piece now and freeze some for a later date. Alternatively, you might want to cut several pieces out of the salmon side as part of your weekly meal prep!
Buying a salmon side with us gives you two options: skin on or skin off. Keeping the skin on can add flavor to its meat when cooked and provide a protective layer between the hot pan and the soft meat. It also makes it easier to move the salmon around on the pan when the skin is on instead of trying to move the spatula under the delicate meat of the fish. However, if you are averse to skin or plan to poach your salmon, it is recommended that it be cooked without its skin and we offer that option as well!
