TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Salmon from the Faroe Islands are raised in the most optimal of environments. The Faroe Islands’ location has a cool and steady temperature, beautiful clear waters, strong currents, and accessible fjords. These are ideal conditions for salmon, encouraging them to thrive and grow. The fish itself has a dense, pleasing texture. It’s beautifully fatty, but not overwhelming. Its flavor is buttery, almost melting in your mouth—only the best and highest quality.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Fresh Faroe Island Salmon is sashimi grade, meaning it’s completely safe to eat raw. Use a very sharp knife to slice it, and serve as fresh sashimi. Another easy way is to roast in the oven at 400F. Just pat the salmon dry with a paper towel, place on a sheet pan, and surround with your favorite vegetables. Coat the salmon and vegetables generously with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and place in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until salmon is flaky.
In The Boyhood Deeds of Fionn, a tale in Irish Mythology, the poet, Finn Eces, searches for seven years for the Salmon of Knowledge, who will grant the powers of knowledge to whoever eats it. He finally catches it, and he asks Fionn mac Cumhaill, his young pupil, to prepare it for him. but young Fionn accidentally burns his thumb on the salmon’s juices. Immediately and instinctively, he puts his thumb in his mouth, inadvertently gaining the Salmon’s wisdom.
