Because some seafood goes out of season during the winter months, finding fresh seafood of any kind in the UK becomes more difficult. That said, many online seafood wholesalers, such as Seafood Direct, can reliably deliver fresh salmon throughout the year. So if you live in the UK and are wondering, “where can I find the best seafood delivery near me?” Seafood Direct is the answer.
Salmon is packed with hearty proteins and is also a rich source of vitamin D. In this blog, we will share tips on preparing for a fresh salmon delivery and cooking and storing fresh salmon properly.
How to Prepare for Salmon Delivery?
Salmon is available in a variety of cuts online, allowing you to experiment with different types before placing an order. Individual portions are usually packaged separately by most internet-based shops and delivery services. These portions stay frozen throughout the shipping process, making it easy to store them in the freezer once they arrive at your doorstep. Keep the portions in the freezer as quickly as possible after receiving your order. Make sure to keep the salmon in the same vacuum-sealed bag that the seller ships it in to avoid “freezer burn”.
Fresh Salmon Recipes for the Winter
Salmon is one of the most versatile and forgiving fish to prepare. There are plenty of salmon recipes for the colder months that use seasonal ingredients. You can cook salmon in various ways, including grilling, sautéing, braising, and roasting. Salmon is an excellent main protein to serve with winter squashes like delicata, acorn and butternut. Cook salmon in the stew with traditional stew veggies like carrots and potatoes for a new take on the old-school stew.
Because salmon can take on any flavour you give, you can wear your chef’s hat and be creative when pairing tastes with a simple pan-fried salmon base.
How to Store Your Fresh Salmon?
Depending on how soon you plan to prepare your fresh salmon, you have a few processing options when it arrives. For example, if you plan to cook the salmon within a few days of receiving it, keep it in the refrigerator to thaw. The salmon will only stay fresh for a few days in the fridge before you need to cook it. Keep salmon in its original vacuum-sealed packaging in the freezer if you wish to save it for later. This way, the salmon can stay fresh for a few months (and even a year).
Frozen salmon can be thawed in the same manner as mentioned above. You can thaw the salmon in the refrigerator for up to two days before you plan to cook it. The day before you plan to cook the salmon, put it in room temperature water to bring it up to room temperature.
