Fish "Candy"? - Yukon King Salmon
It isn't often you come across candy (or something called "candy") where you need to watch out for bones. But, if you try this Yukon King Salmon from Vital Choice, you better be careful. The key to the rich flavor is the oil content, which is 25-35%. The fish swim for 2,300 miles to spawn, so they eat a lot. Thus the high fat content. Yup'ik Eskimos then take the fish and hand de-bone, brine in salt and organic brown sugar, and smoke using natural alder wood.
The end result, according to the company, is a flavor that is subtly sweet - so much so that Alaskans call this treat "Salmon candy."
I believe we should ask Governor Palin to weigh in on this... :)
Thanks to Expired Foods for the heads up.
