Salmon is a very popular fish found in fresh water (most of the time). It is one of the most popular fish in the world, and is enjoyed throughout many cuisines. Salmon is also very sought–after by bears, as it is their most favorite food.
For fish, salmon has a very ‘meaty’ consistency. It has a distinctive red color that turns pink when prepared. Salmon is commonly smoked, grilled, or cured (creating lox). Sometimes, salmon is not prepared at all, and is eaten raw. It tastes good to great.
Salmon became an official snack on May 10th 2012.
