Salmon Candy is a Native American tradition in the Pacific Northwest. Heavily coating and marinating wild salmon with brown sugar before smoking deepens the flavor, adding a glossy caramel sheen and tender texture.
Giovanni’s Fish Market mastered their recipe to get the full sweet, savory, smoky, and omega-3 fatty sensation in every bite. It’s a treat that tastes like candy, but with all the nutritional benefits of wild salmon!
Wild salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, and iron, and it's a high-quality source of protein. Salmon is one of the few food sources naturally rich in vitamin D, which is needed to absorb calcium, maintain proper levels of calcium in the blood, and promote normal bone growth. It is also exceptionally rich in heart-healthy omega-3 essential fatty acids, which guard against inflammation, reduce the risk of strokes, lower blood lipids, boost HDL ("good") cholesterol, decrease blood pressure, and help prevent heart disease.
Each pound of Giovanni's salmon candy is made with wild salmon from their own recipe.
