Wild salmon is the healthiest and most sustainable salmon, and it’s also the best tasting by far. Farmed salmon are as bland and flavorless as factory chicken. They’re fed a dubious diet and require antibiotics to control the disease that inevitably results from their crowded, polluting pens. When they escape, farmed fish endanger native species. Need any more reasons to go wild? “Fish gotta swim” for both flavor and health.
To accompany the salmon and cucumbers, serve plain steamed jasmine rice and sweet potatoes roasted in the skin.
