The Chef-Approved Smoked Salmon You Should Always Buy At Costco
At each meal of the day, salmon has been consumed in a variety of ways for well over 11,500 years, including raw, baked, seared, and, a favorite, smoked. Smoked salmon is fairly easy to find in most grocery stores, but the smoked salmon from Costco is so great that it's even approved by a baker and chef couple.
Out of the six different types of salmon that you'll find at grocery stores, five come from the Pacific Ocean and are all wild-caught, whereas the sixth type coming from the Atlantic Ocean is always farmed, making a big difference. Luckily, the Kirkland's Signature smoked salmon you’ll find at Costco is farm raised and comes pre-sliced and ready to be used — all at a low cost.
If you want to experiment with smoked salmon, try adding it to your usual salad for a smoky touch, spreading cream cheese onto cucumber slices and topping them with some smoked salmon, or adding it to baked potatoes along with tomatoes and sour cream. With this ingredient, it’s never difficult to zhush up a dish and add some creativity to your kitchen.
