How to select quality salmon
Yesterday I starting to watch the film “Jiro dreams of sushi“, and this morning I struck up a short conversation with a chap at the fish counter who was carefully selecting his fillets — and who turned out to be a former Alaskan fisherman. So it goes.
What I was told: Look for meat that is shiny and firm. If you can see the scales, the ideal is shiny and free from patchiness.
