Quick Tips: Buying And Storing Fresh Atlantic Salmon

(NC) - Fresh Atlantic salmon from Canada's east coast is available year-round, and an affordable way to include more heart healthy foods on your weekly menu.

Quality Atlantic salmon is easy to recognize:

    Seasoned Crusted Salmon Rub

  • Smells fresh, never fishy

  • For a whole fish, eyes appear bright and clear, almost alive, gills are reddish, skin moist and with tightly adhering, shiny scales

  • Fresh salmon flesh gives slightly and springs back when pressed with a finger

  • For steaks or fillets, whether they're fresh or previously frozen, look for moist, translucent (never dried out) flesh

When bringing Atlantic salmon home:

  • Keep cool, never leave unrefrigerated for long

  • For best storage, remove from packaging, rinse under cold water, pat dry and place on a cake rack in a shallow pan over crushed ice, cover with cling wrap or foil

  • Cook fresh salmon within two or three days

  • If it can't be used right away, wrap fresh salmon well and freeze for up to three months

An easy and elegant weekday meal:

Ingredients:

  • 4 5-6 oz (150-180 g) salmon portions or 1 whole fish
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) dried rosemary, minced

  • 2 tsp (10 ml) coarse sea salt
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) freeze-dried or dehydrated minced green onion or chives
