Fresh Fish at Asda

This Easter we’ve got a great deal on salmon – now half price at just £4/kilo. Our fresh whole salmon is selected and packed according to the highest quality standards and available from our in-store fish counters.

If the idea of filleting a whole salmon fills you with fear, don’t worry, you’re not alone – nearly half of Brits have never cooked a whole fish. In this video Asda Fishmonger Darren Wrend shows you how it’s done:

Darren said: “Many shoppers tend to stick to pre-prepared fillets as the idea of preparing a whole fish can be daunting and they’re not sure what to do with it. However, a whole salmon centrepiece can look very impressive and it’s really a lot simpler to prepare than people realise.”

He’s also created three easy and delicious recipes for whole salmon that are sure to go down a treat this Easter. Once you’ve followed his simple fish filleting steps in the video above, take a look at his top tips on how to make Garnished Poached Salmon, Salmon En Croute and Salmon and Cod Parcels.

And if you’re pushed for time our friendly Asda fishmongers will be happy to fillet it for you at the fish counter.
