WILD SALMON FAQ
How do I know if the fish for sale in the store,
or the meal I order at a restaurant is wild salmon?
Ask, and look very carefully at the label,
but most importantly ask if you are not sure.
Only buy from reputable sources and people you trust.
Is FROZEN wild salmon a good choice?
Oh yes! In fact in some instances frozen is better, especially when it was frozen at peak freshness using modern techniques. The reality is that most fish you buy is previously frozen.
The only SUSHI you should ever eat is from wild salmon that has been flash frozen for an extended period. Proper freezing kills any parasites that might be present.
Can my children eat wild salmon?
Not only can kids eat it, nutritionists recommend children eat fish twice a week.
Can my BABY eat wild BC Salmon?
YES! In fact, pediatricians recommend that babies as young as six months eat fish regularly. Always check with your pediatrician first though regarding fish allergies. As a general rule, if your baby is eating solid food, you can include natural wild fish in their diet.
How can I tell if the wild salmon I want to buy is as fresh as possible?
Again, ask, but if you want to test for yourself, push your finger into its flesh. If if the flesh springs back relatively quickly, you have a fresh wild salmon.
If the salmon is frozen (and gutted), look at the belly. If the cleaning slit along the length of the belly is spread apart it indicates the salmon was fresh and frozen right after it was caught. If the slit is closed, it was probably not as fresh as it could have been by the time it made it to the freezer.
Does all wild salmon taste the same?
Not at all. Wild salmon has provenance. Different species like wild Coho or Chinook, have unique tatses. Sockeye is strong and flavourful, while Chum is delicate and often appeals more to finicky kids.
There is even a difference in taste depending on where and when the salmon was caught. Just like fine wine, once you get to know your wild salmon you'll seek out species and runs from specific regions.
