Everything you need to know about salmon

Rich in Omega-3 and therefore good fats; Salmon is the guest of choice on the holiday tables. However it is recommended not to eat it more than twice a week due to the risk of heavy metal contamination

Heavy metals attach to the fatty parts of salmon; the best trade-off is to choose Alaskan salmon with less polluted seas, but it is much more expensive

Salmon also provides you with omega 3, interesting amounts of vitamins, including vitamins A and D as well as magnesium

Choose and keep it

Salmon should be very fresh and not give off an unpleasant odour. The belly and fins of whole-sold fish must be intact, the eye must be shiny and bulging. The ideal is to buy salmon on the day you eat it.

Salmon can be stored in the refrigerator for 24 hours at 4oC, provided it is properly packaged. Frozen at -18oC, in airtight packaging, you can keep it for 1 month.


Food/wine pairing

To accompany these tagliatelle with fresh salmon, I propose a large Riesling d'Alsace or a white Bordeaux Pessac-Léognan
