Kitchen Notes

If Ora King salmon is unavaiable, Faroe Islands salmon is a good choice .Faroe Islands believe in “quality through welfare” and have one of the strictest aquaculture operations in the world. This eliminates the unhealthy characteristics of most non-wild seafood, and ensures responsible care of the environment and healthy salmon habitat. In order to safely eat salmon raw, freeze for 30 minutes before using. An added benefit of freezing just before using, slicing salmon into uniform pieces is even easier.
