Salmon

 Salmon
Although a salmon spends its life at sea, because traditionally it was caught at the mouth of the river on its way upstream, it is counted as freshwater fish. It’s perfect for foil cooking or pan-seared and for entertaining.

Farmed salmon is available all year round, wild salmon is only available from March to September.
