I have to admit that I have a little crush on the man who works at the seafood counter at my local Brookshire’s. He’s super friendly and has never, EVER been wrong about anything he’s recommended.
Recently, I went to the counter to order some salmon, my usual, and he recommended that I try the Scottish salmon they had on special that day. I decided to spend a little extra because he promised the flavor was even more melt-in-your-mouth and buttery than the variety I usually buy.
He was right, again.
Scottish salmon is Scotland’s No. 1 food export. They are raised on farms in the ocean to ensure high quality control. Their flesh is bright pink and firm, and they are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids.
At Brookshire’s, Scottish salmon is sold whole, or the nice man or lady behind the counter will fillet it for you (I always have them do this!). I usually grill my salmon, and today the nice man behind the counter suggested that I try making a “salmon salad” with any leftovers. I’ll probably listen.
