Native to Norway, the farmed trout spend their early life deep in the fjords exposed to the melt waters from the glaciers, then are moved to saltier environment closer to the entrance of the fjords.
Compared to salmon - leaner flesh with the fat in the belly, deeper colour, richer and slightly sweeter flavour. Texture velvety soft, but firmer when bitten.
Store chilled in ice or refrigerator (0-5C). Consume within 2-3 days. Do not freeze.
Easy meal to prepare. Check if any remaining bones, running finger along the middle of the portion, and remove with tweezers. Recommend lightly cooking – shallow pan-fry in butter. Optionally roast on low heat or bake fillets skin-side down in oven after rubbing with a little olive oil and sprinkling with salt and pepper.
