Frequently Asked Questions About Salmon
What’s the healthiest salmon?
There are several different types of salmon. The 2 major categories are Atlantic salmon and Pacific salmon. There are 2 types of Atlantic salmon and 5 types of Pacific salmon.
Atlantic salmon are almost universally farmed now because of declining populations in the wild. Unfortunately, farmed fish have a lot of toxins and contaminants caused by everything from commercial pollution to medicated feeds. And the taste of farmed salmon is pretty bland.
The healthiest salmon is wild caught Pacific salmon which includes Chum, Coho (or silver) salmon, chinook (or king) salmon, Pink salmon, and Sockeye (or red) salmon.
What can I serve with salmon?
Anything you want! Your kitchen, your rules!
Seriously though, I really does depend. If you are serving it with just a light sauce, choose steamed vegetables (like asparagus or broccoli) and a crisp green salad.
If you are wanting something more substantial, potatoes (fried, boiled, or baked), pasta, rice, or even quinoa are good accompaniments.
What flavors go well with salmon?
Dill and lemon are the classic flavors that pair beautifully with salmon. But don’t let that stop you from experimenting. Salmon is pretty amazing smoked, BBQ’d, and even maple glazed.
