Lovely!

Great price. Going there later.

Great find, jayjay - heat.

Stock up on these for Xmas dates good

A few? I'll be emptying the shelves if they are on offer at my local. Half a tin of this every day is a cheap source of good protein.

does anyone know if this is fillet, chomp or mush?

Better than the 'Wild' farmed Scottish salmon in the supermarkets. Hot

Surely they can't label it wild if its farmed?

Farmed salmon is very dangerous to eat!

Any salmon you see at the fish section in a supermarket is farmed. It's always advertised as being fresh, healthy, and a quality luxury product...it's anything but.

Bargain heat added

why is it dangerous?

salmon in a tin - yuck spewmon

Google health impacts of farmed salmon, Chemicals, pesticides, and anti-biotics are used in farmed salmon aswell as colouring to turn the flesh from gray to a nice pink. There is also the environmental impact of it sea lice and diminishing wild salmon stocks and sea trout due to farming. This tinned salmon is not farmed so it's fine just to make it clear

Throughout their life, from birth to slaughter, farmed salmon are treated with a range of chemicals to protect them from disease and to make them more attractive to consumers. The flesh of wild salmon is naturally pink, because of the food they eat in the wild. Factory-farmed salmon flesh, however, is muddy grey in colour. Most farm salmon are fed a manufactured colourant in their food to make their flesh colour more appealing to consumers.

Common diseases on Scottish fish farms include Infectious Salmon Anaemia, Bacterial Kidney Disease and Infectious Pancreatic Necrosis, all of which can be fatal to caged salmon. Because of the numbers of fish stocked into each cage, disease spreads rapidly and is as quickly transferred to adjacent cages in the same sea loch.

Factory-farmed salmon have been identified by scientists as containing potentially harmful levels of PCB’s and dioxins. A recent report advised people to limit the quantity of farmed salmon they ate to no more than four meals a year.

thats probably why there is none left when anyone else goes for the offer

The wife won't buy pink salmon - insists on red, arguing that it tastes far better.

Much more expensive, and given that we rarely eat it any way other than in sandwiches I think she's mistaken.

Who's right?

Yeah but this costs £1.
