A superior fillet, conveniently cut into the perfect slices. This product is Certified OU for our Kosher customers.
Known Oterfjord trout or Fjord Trout this is farmed in the island of Osteroy, in the pristine fjords of West Noway. A type of fast-growing rainbow trout, this is a member of the Salmonidae family. Our farmed Fjord trout eat a varied, well-formulated diet and live in a strictly controlled environment on glacial waters fed by the Artic currents and glacial melts. The plant is filled with pure mountain water that comes straight for the glacier, rich in natural minerals from the sediments and loaded with oxygen - perfect for the fish, which develop a deep red color and a wonderful flavor that's so unique to the fjord trout. Fossen uses selective breeding and never genetically modifies their fish, and has fun traceability and certification of the feed and everything that goes into the process.
Flavor and texture-wise, fjord salmon trout is almost impossible to tell apart from salmon, and delivers the same nutrition - and a wealth of Omega 3 fatty acids to boot, with a firmer texture than salmon which makes it particularly ideal for smoking and marinating.
