Incredible to think that this was once a luxury fish only available to the wealthy. As wild salmon stocks decrease, the development of farmed salmon has not so much bridged the gap, more like blown it wide open, making it very affordable and our biggest selling species - by a long, long way! Wild fish have been caught as large as 45kg, but are usually up to around 15kg, while Farmed fish range from 2kg to 8kg. Certified organic farmed salmon is available on request, however we find most chefs prefer Natural Choice salmon. Reared in wild conditions off the coast of Shetland and fed on chemical free feed, Natural Choice salmon has outstanding taste and texture. But whatever the salmon, the most popular portion is the supreme - with or without the skin (though steaks are still used and are good value). Salmon can be cooked in most ways, with a vast array of flavours and recipes. It is also very good eaten cold with a flavoured mayonnaise, making it a good choice for summer functions.
Wild Salmon is currently classified by the Marine Conservation Society as Red rated 5, which means fish to avoid. As part of our commitment to only sell responsibly sourced fish and seafood, we no longer supply Wild Salmon.
