Atlantic salmon is one of the most well known salmon species.
Nearly all Atlantic salmon available commercially are farm raised in the United States, United Kingdom, Chile, Norway, Canada, Ireland, and Iceland.
Atlantic salmon are sold head-on and dressed, as roasts, fillets, fillet portions, skin-on, skin-off, and steaks. Atlantic salmon is also available as processed products such as smoked steaks, patties, etc.
Farm raised Atlantic salmon has a milder, more delicate flavor than wild salmon. The flesh is lighter colored than wild salmon, moderately firm and flaky.
Atlantic salmon steaks, fillets and whole fish can be baked, broiled, poached, or grilled.
