Norway is a maritime nation, with a very long coastline, so it’s no wonder they’ve been fishing for centuries. In fact, 40% of all Norwegian seafood export is salmon. Our Fresh Norwegian Salmon is a deep healthy pink color. Its texture is moist and juicy, and its flavor is mild, but delicious.
Our Fresh Norwegian Salmon is sashimi grade, which means it’s safe to eat raw. If you have time, try making a classic Nordic treat: gravlax. It’s delicious, versatile, and not intimidating to make at all.
A famous story in Norse mythology involves how the salmon’s tail became tapered. The god of mischief, Loki, tricked Hodr, the blind god, into firing the mistletoe arrow that killed his brother Baldr. In an attempt to escape punishment, Loki shapeshifted into a salmon as he jumped into a river. The other gods put up a net to trap him, which he attempted to leap over. But he was caught by Thor, who grabbed him by the tail, hence why the salmon’s tail is tapered.
Fresh fish will arrive to you in designated styro boxes with shaved ice. Kindly store in your fridge as soon as received.
For the best flavor and quality, fish should be prepared for eating the same day it is brought home, but it can be stored for two to three days in a refrigerator at a cool 4°C. You can store fish fillets in airtight bags in the freezer for up to a month. Cooked leftovers should be cooled and refrigerated as soon as possible and consumed within three days.
