Norwegian Fjord Trout
Norwegian Trout is a sea farmed trout branded as Fjord Trout. Lovingly raised in the pure and cold Norwegian fjords where seawater meets fresh meltwater from the glaciers and snow. Fjord Trout is a premium niche product known for its inimitable “fjord quality”.
Fjord Trout has a remarkably rich flavour with a pure aftertaste. Fjord Trout contains no geosmin, an organic compound that gives the fish a distinctive earthy flavour. Fjord Trout can handle both intense and sublime flavours and has proven to be suitable in different cuisines all over the world. Diversify by baking or grilling as well as pan frying.
Norwegian trout is often confused with other red fish species especially Salmon but distinguishes itself from them in many ways.
In terms of production, trout represents only 5 per cent of the total production of salmon, which is a huge industry in Norway and is farmed along nearly the entire coastline from East Finnmark to Western Norway.
In terms of colour, the fjord trout is a more florid red-orange than paler-skinned salmon. It’s easy to identify fjord trout because its vibrant red-orange hue makes it stand out among the pale pinks and whites of most other fish. This is due to astaxanthin, a carotenoid that gives the fish its distinctive pigment (also found in ripe tomatoes and autumn leaves).
In terms of taste, salmon has that characteristic velvety smoothness while trout has a firmer, more voluptuous bite to it. Also, the fjord trout does not have the trademark earthy, muddy notes. Fjord trout store fat mostly in their abdomen, making their meat lean but rich, but still packed with protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
In terms of health benefits, trout and salmon can both offer good amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, which can lower overall cholesterol and reduce inflammation throughout the body. The two fish are also quite similar in protein content, meaning that they can both help with repair, growth, and development for those who regularly consume it.
