Now – just what is the big deal about wild salmon as a special and healthy food?
Salmon has some terrific food values not available in other foods – and not even available in the so-called “farm-raised” “equivalent” salmon.
Wild salmon is 100% natural in flavor, color and Omega-3 content; the same cannot be said of farm-raised Atlantic salmon normally available in the supermarkets nowadays.
Farmed salmon is often artificially colored with added synthetic pigments to mask its naturally-occurring, unappetizing pale gray color. And farmed salmon is fed a steady diet of antibiotics to grow, another difference vs. wild salmon.
Finally, the fish meal and fish oils fed to farmed salmon have a direct impact on PCB levels (PCB’s are an industrial byproduct which has been identified as a probable human carcinogen).
Quality salmon is easy to recognize. Fresh salmon never smells fishy, it smells fresh. The eyes should appear bright and clear, almost alive. Cooking grilled salmon recipes with true in-the-wild salmon rewards your palate and your health. Try it.
