A generally lean and mild-flavored fish, pink salmon has meat that is low in oil and small-flaked. As the name implies, this salmon’s flesh is truly pink. The color is paler than the meat of the other salmon species and lacks the orange tint. It also has softer meat than most salmon.Pink salmon eggs are the second most valuable (behind those of chums) for salmon caviar.
With their low fat content, pinks don’t grill as well as other salmon. Whatever cooking method you choose, it’s important not to let the lean meat dry out. Cook with moist heat or baste frequently while cooking. Pinks also work well in chowders, sandwiches, pasta preparations, casseroles and salads.
