Salmon

At Munkebo Seafood A/S we use two types of salmon, farmed salmon and wild salmon. Farmed salmon has in recent years become common. Standards have been made to ensure fish quality, but equally important, ensure a minimal impact on the environment and the fish stocks. Our Salmo Salar comes from salmon farms in Norway and Chile, while our humpback salmon is wild caught and MSC certified.

Salmo Salar is characterized as a fatty fish with high oil content. This gives the fish a stronger flavour than many other salmon species. The flesh has a pale to orange colour and the scent is mild. The humpback salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) is characterized by a lesser fat content than other salmon types and thereby a mild flavour and ocean flavour, but without having a strong smell of fish. It is also called pink Salmon because the meat has a light pink to pink colour.

Health
The salmon is a fatty fish that is high in healthy polyunsaturated fatty acids n-3 fatty acids, also called omega-3 fatty acids. N-3 fatty acids are vital for us humans and must therefore be present in our diet. The salmon is particularly rich in iodine and selenium and has a high content of D and vitamin B12.
