Wild Ocean Caught Whole Salmon Fillet
Do you like eating Salmon? I enjoy a good Salmon steak when I can get it at a good price. Well for the last several years, I have been buying wild ocean Salmon at Wal-Mart. Last year it came in packages with one 5 ounce serving and it cost $0.99. I would buy enough to put in my freezer for several dinners. The salmon was good and you can’t beat the price with a stick. HEB, Krogers, Randals and other grocery stores were much higher. The only problem is that they only have it one time a year.
I went into Wal-Mart last week and found it was salmon time again. This year it comes in a larger (1.75lb. – 793 g.) package for around $ 5.75. It is the whole fish fillet, cut into 4 serving sizes. It is boneless with the skin on one side. The fish contains 603 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids per serving. It is all natural, no artificial color added, no preservatives added and ready to cook. It is caught in the Pacific Ocean, off the Island of Hokkaido, north of Japan, then hand trimmed in China.
The name on the package says “Aqua Star” and they are based in Seattle. Their website address is www.aquastar.com On the back of the package are instructions for baking, grilling, pan fry/ skillet, broiling and microwaving. Also on the back of the package it gives instructions for different defrosting methods, to include: quick defrost, overnight, and microwave.
I know I sound like an advertisement for Salmon, but the fish is good for maintaining a good healthy heart. The more I read about the health benefits of Salmon, the more I want to eat it. I do know that eating wild salmon has more benefits than eating farm raised salmon. I have never been much of a fish fan, but I am learning about it now. Go check out your Wal-Mart and see if they have it there. I like baking mine with a little squeezed lemon and butter on top. Follow the package instructions and don’t overbake.
I’ve been under the weather with a little cold or allergies. If I don’t make it around to your web page in the next few days you will know why. Talk to ya later.
