This special trout was brought to Norway from America in the 19th century. It is raised in a long, deep channel formed by successive glacial ice-flow erosions over the course of 2 million years. The fjord thus contains a perfect mix of salt and fresh water. Its swift current results in a highly oxygenated water that these fish thrive in. This trendy trout is the same species as rainbow trout, though its flesh—like that of wild salmon—is deep red. It is sweeter than salmon, and its flavor tends to be rich because of the way it stores fat.
Fjord trout are farmed in uncrowded conditions and fed sustainably, without chemicals or pesticides. They are good grilled, smoked, sautéed, and marinated. Registered by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. Low mercury level. Kosher.
