With ample fat and flavor, salmon bellies are great in raw preparations like sashimi and crudo. The pieces are naturally thin, giving you a head-start. You can also give them the full bacon treatment by rubbing them with a dry cure that you let sit overnight and then frying them up in the pan. You can smoke them too to call out their “baconess” even more.
SAFE HANDLING — Keep frozen until ready to use. Remove from packaging and defrost in the refrigerator 8-10 hours before use. Do not defrost at room temperature. Once defrosted, do not refreeze and use within 3 days.
