Chef Andrew Gruel of Big Parm and the Calico Fish House

Our own Chef Andrew Gruel the Founder of Big Parm (New Jersey-style pizza), Two Birds and the soon to launch, full-service Calico Fish House (in Huntington Beach) provides another timely and informative Ask the Chef segment where Chef Andrew responds to listeners thoughtful inquiries.

We all know salmon is healthy and, ideally, should be part of our regular diet. It also can be kind of boring. As our resident seafood authority we have Chef Andrew to the culinary rescue. Chef Andrew shares his thoughts on easily adding some excitement to that traditional salmon dish. Also some advice for jazzing up Salmon Burgers. Think about adding shrimp when preparing and shaping the patty.

Show 471, April 23, 2022: Jennifer Bushman, Chief Marketing Officer Kvarøy Arctic Salmon Part One

Jennifer Bushman of Kvaroy Arctic

“Kvarøy (say “Kwa-ray”) is a postcard-pretty Norwegian island located on the Arctic Circle. It was here back in 1976 that Alf Olsen and his son Geir founded Kvarøy Arctic. Today, the now third-generation family-run business is driven by the same goal set by their grandfather—“to provide salmon of very high quality, without compromising either the environment or the welfare of the fish.” Kvarøy Arctic is redefining the salmon-farming industry through innovation and deep concern for the future of the fish they raise and the waters they live on. Kvarøy Arctic helped develop the non-GMO food they provide their salmon. This has resulted in an omega-3 content that is twice as much as other farmed salmon, and a highly sustainable fish-in/fish-out ratio of 0.48 to 1.”

At Natural Products Expo West last month in Anaheim Kvarøy Arctic introduced their Salmon Hot Dogs. “This flavorful hot dog is packed with the full recommended allowance of Omega 3’s in one serving. They are non-GMO, gluten-free, and can be stored in the freezer for up to a year. Simply thaw and they are ready to grill, broil or pan fry.” The Kvarøy Arctic Salmon Hot Dogs (2 dogs in a 7 oz. package) are available in Original Recipe, Original & Cheese, Jalapeno & Cheese and Chile & Cheese styles. There is also a new line of Salmon Burgers, skin-backed in four flavors.

Kvarøy Arctic’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jennifer Bushman, is our guest providing all the background on this family-owned, sustainable fish farm. As they like to say, “It’s the salmon that seafood people have been waiting for.”
