Lisa asks: Do you buy wild or farmed salmon?


You really don't know much about the different types of salmon. What do you mean when you say a Chum is small and the sockeye is oiler. Sockeye are firm and dryer .......

Wild sockeye is best for grilling. I just read the article and smiled because I've had the most compliments when I've prepared sockeye at BBQs. People who didn't think that they liked salmon, including my mom, discovered that they did. In foil, skin side down, a pat of butter, a squeeze of lemon, salt and pepper. Close the foil and put on the grill.

I go to Alaska and catch my own, freeze it and ship it back.

I try to avoid farmed salmon. It's not that I would know the difference if it was served. I have been told that farmed is not good for the environment or for my health, so I let that be my guide.

Farmed is crap - mushy texture . Cannot beat the wild real deal !

If wild salmon is available, I would certainly go for that one. However, if it ain't available, then I won't mind eating farmed salmon.
