Pink salmon is one of the salmon species. It received its unusual name because of a hump at the front of the ridge. Cooks for the most part prefer this particular variety: according to their characteristics, it is not inferior to salmon or chum salmon, but the price for pink salmon is significantly lower. The most important thing in a high-quality tasty cooked dish is the right choice of products..
It is worth noting that it is better to take chilled fish. If it will be used for baking, take the gutted without a head. Look into her abdominal cavity – it should be pinkish, not yellow. Fins and tail – not over dried and without damage.

During cooking, you can not overdo the fish in the oven, it will turn out dry. And dose the amount of seasoning – the fish do not like a lot of spices..
