A Foodies Guide to Salmon

There’s a saying in the seafood industry: the West eats cod, the East eats mackerel and everyone eats salmon.

And yet, for a fish we eat so much of, most of us know very little about it. OK, we know if it’s fresh, smoked or canned, we might even know whether it’s farmed or wild but pushed a little further about the different varieties, its seasonality and even its sustainability and we’re largely stumped.

So whether you’re eating chinook or chum, sockeye or coho, the Marine Stewardship Council have put together this great Foodies Guide to Salmon, exploring its different tastes and textures, recipe ideas and cooking tips and sustainable outlook. Because for some of us, life without salmon is unthinkable.
