Giveaway - £25 Morrisons Voucher plus Scandilicious Cookbook

Norwegian salmon is a mouth-watering fish with a fresh, smooth, rich flavour and a soft, red flesh and defined flakes; perfect for dining al fresco this summer.  Turning a delicate pink colour when cooked, Norwegian salmon is deliciously sweet and its succulent flakes fall away easily when cooked making it an ideal key ingredient for any summer meal.

Whether it’s a weekday BBQ with the family or a picnic with friends, Norwegian salmon is a hugely versatile fish and can be poached, grilled, pan-fried, baked or roasted for delicious hot dishes.  A firm favourite for children and adults alike, you can also use up leftover salmon in a tasty salad lunch box the next day.

Eat like a Scandi:
Often referred to as a superfood, Norwegian salmon is an oily fish, rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and vitamins A and D, which makes it a hugely popular addition to a heart and brain-healthy diet and a great choice for those looking for a lighter lunch or dinner this summer.

Norway’s cold, clear waters are home to an abundance of this favourite fish.  In year-round supply and enjoyed in over 100 countries worldwide, so there is really no reason not to pop a pack or two of Norwegian salmon in your shopping basket this summer.


Look for the NORGE logo on pre-packed Norwegian salmon in Morrisons.

United Nations:
In 2007 an independent research institute carried out a survey of the ways in which fishing nations are dealing with the challenges presented by illegal fishing and unregistered and unreported fish, as well as the UN’s rules of governance pertaining to responsible fishing practice (the FAO Code of Conduct). This detailed analysis concluded that Norway is a world leader in fishing management. In assessing the extent to which different countries are acting in accordance with the UN’s Code of Conduct for responsible fishing management, Norway ranks top followed by the USA, Canada, Australia and Iceland.
