What to Buy? Wild Salmon or Farmed Salmon?
As I live in California, the salmon we have is Pacific salmon. Most Pacific salmon is wild, but some are farmed.
There is also Atlantic salmon. Unfortunately, it’s an endangered species and there is no more left commercially. All Atlantic salmons are now farmed.
If you can find wild caught Pacific salmon, definitely buy that.
Which Cut of Salmon to Buy?
If you have access to a fish market, you might be able to buy a whole salmon, but it’s probably too big for daily consumption.
When it comes to buying salmon at a grocery store, there are a few common cuts to choose from:
- Salmon fillet, which is flat and not as thick. This is the cut I recommend for this Soy Glazed Salmon recipe.
- Salmon steak – this is a thick, cross-section cut around the fish. It looks like a piece of fish steak.
- Supreme cut – this is a slice of salmon filet, which is usually rectangle in shape. There is no bone in the fillet. You can also use this cut for this Soy Glazed Salmon recipe.
