Salmon
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
Salmon are mainly farmed along the southern and east coast of Tasmania, and at Macquarie Bay on the west coast. There are a few commercial farms in Victoria and South Australia. Harvesting is now all year round with peak supplies from October to mid-March. Young Atlantic salmon are reared in fresh water until they weigh between 70-100g and are then farmed in sea cages positioned in bays and inlets. Canned salmon with the bones is a very good source of calcium.

Note about amines: Fresh seafood has low amine levels, but when older than two days the amine content rises to moderate, and any fish that has been frozen has high levels.
Category: Seafood - Finfish
In Season: all year
To Buy:
Available in whole, fillet or cutlet form. Look for lustrous, bright skin; bulging eyes; firm flesh and a pleasant, fresh smell. Fillets and cutlets should be lustrous with no brown markings and not oozing water.
To Store:
Wrap whole fish, fillets or cutlets in plastic wrap or put in an airtight container. Refrigerate for 2-3 days or freeze for up to 6 months, providing your freezer operates at 18C.
Tips & Tricks:
Whole fish is already cleaned and gutted when purchased, quickly rinse under cold running water and score at the thickest part of the flesh to allow even heat penetration.
Cooking Tips:
Excellent pan-fried, chargrilled, barbecued, baked, steamed or poached. Poached whole and served with a fresh green salad and new potatoes makes a very simple and delicious lunch party.
