Skin-on, fresh, never-frozen salmon steak.
Harvest method and location: Sustainably farmed, in the Faroe Islands, received within 72 hours of harvest.
Description: Salmon requires very specific conditions to ensure the quality of the fish. The Faroe Islands not only have a perfect climate, but they also have a very strong and unique current system which enables excellent seawater circulation around the well spaced out farming areas creating the most optimal biological conditions for farming salmon. This type of farmed salmon is much different than other farmed species of fish because the feed for the Faroe Island salmon is live fish rather than pellets packed with synthetic vitamins, making it the closest product to its wild counterpart. This diet mirrors the diet in its natural habitat which adds to the overall quality, but especially the nutritional quality of the fish. Even though the Faroe Islands are remotely located, effective logistics management makes it possible to reach the US within 72 hours of harvesting so you count on getting fresh product of the highest possible quality. This salmon has a very buttery taste and texture coming as close to wild salmon as you can get. Because there are no antibiotics ever administered, Faroe Island salmon is especially popular among sushi chefs and high end seafood restaurants.
