Salmon is delicious and, guess what, so good for you! It's loaded with good omega 3 oils and fatty acids that the body needs to do its job properly, so getting it in once a week is a great idea.
Ensuring you get the highest quality salmon possible is easy, too. Just ask for Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon and then follow the below simple guidelines courtesy of Tassal.
- When choosing a whole fish, the eyes of the fish should be bright and clear, and the skin should moist.
- Salmon fillets and portions should have a moist appearance, with no browning around the edges. The flesh should spring back slightly when gently pressed.
- Like all fresh fish, fresh Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon should have a pleasant fresh sea smell. Avoid any fish with a strong, unpleasant aroma.
