❁ Choose fresh salmon with a mild, ocean-like smell. The flesh and skin should be moist, firm and bright.
❁ Frozen salmon is often flash-frozen and vacuum packed soon after harvest to lock in flavor and texture.
❁ Wild salmon tends to be darker colored and often costs more than farmed salmon.
❁ Canned salmon is cooked and ready to use, and often costs less than fresh.
❁ Smoked or dried salmon often costs more than fresh or frozen unless you make it yourself.
