    Kitchen Dictionary: salmon

    Pronounced: SAM-uhn

    Chinook or king salmon can reach up to 120 pounds with a high-fat, soft-textured flesh ranging from off-white to bright red. Other salmon include coho or silver salmon with firm-textured pink to red-orange flesh; sockeye or red salmon (prized for canning) with firm deep red flesh. Not as fatty are the pink or humpback salmon, the smallest most delicately flavored variety; and the chum or dog salmon which is distinguished by having the lightest color and lowest fat content. All salmon are high in protein and a rich source of omega-3 oils.
