Flash-grilled Faroe Islands salmon
The salmon is flash-grilled before it is canned so you get the fantastic griddle stripes on the fish. It is packed in a locally sourced, nutty, buttery cold pressed rapeseed oil. Rapeseed oil is the Nordic answer to olive oil. Fangst’s mission, since the canning company began three years ago, is to revive Scandinavia’s once thriving canning industry and give what is viewed as a southern European preserve a distinctive Nordic twist. Fangst uses salmon farmed in the Faroe Islands because it is more sustainable. The colder water temperatures in the fjords mean the salmon farming is healthier there.
