Your Guide to Enjoying Skuna Bay Salmon

Welcome to Skuna 101, your comprehensive guide to selecting, storing, and savoring the unparalleled taste of Skuna Bay Salmon. As connoisseurs of quality and sustainability, we’re here to ensure that your experience with our salmon is nothing short of extraordinary, from market to meal.

Selecting the Perfect Salmon

1. Look for the Quality Mark

Start by looking for the Skuna Bay Quality Mark on the packaging. This emblem assures you’re getting the highest quality, sustainably farmed salmon.

2. Check the Appearance

Fresh Skuna Bay Salmon should have bright, clear eyes, firm flesh, and a clean, ocean-fresh scent. The skin should be shiny and moist, without any signs of browning or drying.

3. Feel the Texture

The flesh of the salmon should spring back when gently pressed. This indicates the salmon is fresh and of the highest quality.

Storing Your Salmon

Refrigerate Promptly: To maintain the freshness of Skuna Bay Salmon, refrigerate it as soon as possible. If you’re not planning to cook the salmon within a day of purchase, it’s best to freeze it.

Freezing for Freshness: Cut the salmon to your preferred portion size, wrap the salmon tightly in plastic wrap or a vacuum-sealed bag before freezing. Properly stored, Skuna Bay Salmon can be frozen for up to three months without losing its quality and taste.

Preparing Your Salmon

  • For the best flavor and texture, thaw frozen salmon in the refrigerator overnight. Avoid thawing at room temperature or under warm water, as this can affect the quality of the fish.

  • Enhance the natural flavors of Skuna Bay Salmon with a simple marinade. Acidic ingredients like lemon juice or vinegar should be used sparingly and added towards the end of marinating to prevent the fish from becoming mushy.

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Brush the salmon with oil and season as desired. Grill skin-side down for about 6-8 minutes, then flip carefully and finish cooking for another 3-5 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily.

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the salmon on a lightly oiled baking sheet or dish, and season according to your taste. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

  • Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat with a bit of oil. Season the salmon and place it skin-side down in the pan. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, then flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until desired doneness.
