With a rich, pinkish-orange hue and delectable taste, salmon is a defining symbol of Canadian cuisine. On the Pacific coast, British Columbia is renowned for wild salmon runs of chinook, sockeye, and coho. On the East Coast, there’s a deep-seated tradition of fishing for Atlantic salmon. And top-quality salmon is raised and harvested in aquaculture farms across British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

The flavour of Canadian salmon is truly exceptional. Its firm flesh, rich in natural Omega oils, has a taste that's both sweet and savoury. Whether grilled on a cedar plank, smoked, or prepared as a delicate tartare, salmon stands out as a versatile and beloved seafood recipe ingredient for the home cook.
