Salmon as food

Salmon is a common food fish classified as an oily fish with rich content of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. In Norway – a major producer of farmed and wild salmon – farmed and wild salmon differ only slightly in terms of food quality and safety, with farmed salmon having a lower content of environmental contaminants, and wild salmon having a higher content of omega-3 fatty acids.

  1. Ooh …. I do so love a new “salmon” recipe to try. We eat salmon once a week – either mixed up as part of a tagliatelle dish with petit pois, Philadelphia soft cheese, chives & baked cherry tomatoes. Or plain oven baked salmon with baby potatoes and fresh broccoli (or petit pois). Or wrapped in puff pastry as Salmon en croute. So it would be nice to try a different twist to salmon. 😊

    • Hi Linda. WOW you have a nice spread going with your Salmon. The tagliatelle sounds awesome with the Philadelphia cheese. Care to share the full recipe with me, it will be awesome. Thanks

    • Hi Marian. I truly hope that you will enjoy this, Should you have a moment, once you made it, please will you be so kind as to rate and leave a review as this will be absolutely awesome for others to hear what you have to say

  2. This sounds like a very interesting and tasty recipe, Esme. My husband does not like ANY kind of fish, unfortunately. But, I would still love to try this some time. One of my favorite foods growing up was my mom’s salmon patties. That is one of the few ways I’ve eaten salmon in my life, although once in first class on a plane, I had some salmon that was amazing! (They upgraded me to first class for free, because I was pregnant, 31 years ago!) Happy New Year to you!

    • Hi Pam. You should give this is a try, we absolutely love Salmon in any way I can dish it up and try to each fish at least once a week, not always salmon but any fish.
