Hot Smoked Norwegian Salmon

What is Salmon?

Salmon are saltwater fish that are mostly native to the waters of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and California. They swim through estuaries and upstream into freshwater to reproduce, making them relatively unique among commercially harvested fish.

Salmon Shopping Tips

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Salmon Cooking How-Tos

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Wine Pairing

Pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillon, albariño, or rosé with most cooked salmon dishes; pinot noir with salmon in red wine or other strong sauce; grüner veltliner, rosé, or vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with smoked salmon.
