If you’re looking to add some oomph to your meals, you’ll want to check out the salmon options at your local Aldi. Fresh salmon is a tasty and nutritious option that can elevate any dish. And the best part? It’s not just for fancy occasions – you can enjoy it any day of the week.
When it comes to buying salmon, you’ve got a few options. You can go for fresh salmon, which is generally the most versatile and the best quality. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more convenient to keep around for healthy meals you could pick up some frozen salmon or canned salmon. Aldi also regularly carries cold smoked salmon which is another great option.
Aldi’s salmon is a tasty and versatile option that can add some excitement to your meals. So why not give it a try and see what all the fuss is about? Just remember to choose wisely and store it properly, and you’ll be hooked in no time.
Fresh Salmon At Aldi
Aldi consistently carries fresh salmon in the fresh meat and seafood refrigerated area and there is generally a few options to choose from. Typically in my local store are Norwegian Atlantic Salmon, Atlantic Salmon, or a whole side of salmon.
Aldi also rotates some other salmon options throughout the year like Coho Salmon and Sockeye Salmon, along with stuffed salmon, salmon on a wood plank, or pre-seasoned salmon. I haven’t tried any of these “pre-made” salmon options personally but I do buy the Norwegian Atlantic Salmon regularly and the quality is great. I will also buy some of Coho, Sockeye, or Wild Caught Salmon when it is available and all have been high quality.
The price of Aldi’s Salmon is going to vary based on the season and your location but the whole salmon side is typically the cheapest per pound but I won’t eat the much salmon at once so I prefer to but the smaller portions.
Frozen Salmon At Aldi
Aldi also carries a few salmon options in the freezer section. I believe the last time I checked you will typically spend a bit less per pound for the frozen salmon vs the fresh salmon.
Their typical frozen salmon is also wild caught which a lot of people would prefer over farm raised. The packages I see most often are Fremont Fish Market Wild Caught Salmon. They come in either a one pound package or a two pound value pack.
These are boneless and skinless fillets, I prefer cooking skin-on salmon but not everyone does. I think when I tried these in the past the fillets were on the smaller/thinner side compared to the fresh options, again my preference is for a thicker salmon fillet.
Aldi also lists Specially Selected Sockeye Salmon Fillets as a option in the freezer. I haven’t seen these myself but I have always found the Specially Selected items to be very good. These are Alaskan Salmon Fillets and are skin-on which is how I prefer to buy my salmon.
I do prefer fresh never frozen salmon because the texture it typically better but I would probably give the Specially Selected Salmon a try if I find them in my local Aldi.
Canned Salmon At Aldi
If you prefer to buy your salmon canned you can still find it at Aldi! I beleive they only have one option available most of the time but may have a few other varieties that rotate in and out as seasonal items or Aldi Finds.
The option that should be available year round is Northern Catch Wild Alaska Pink Salmon which comes in a 14.75oz can.
Canned Salmon is a great option to keep on hand for an easy meal. You can make it into salmon cakes/patties, add to pasta, make it into a dip/spread, make salmon chowder, or salmon salad. I like to use it when the salmon is being added to something or used in a way that the texture of the salmon itself won’t matter too much.
Other Salmon Dishes At Aldi
If you are a fan of Aldi you know that they are constantly rotating different products each week with Aldi Finds items and Seasonal Items so you can find a variety of Salmon dishes throughout the year, most often in the freezer section.
Probably my favorite salmon dish from any grocery store (and possibly even any restaurant) is the Specially Selected Salmon Wellington. It makes for a great meal and would impress some guests if you tell them you made it yourself!
Aldi also carries salmon burgers/patties at times throughout the year and I have some in my freezer that I haven’t gotten around to testing out just yet.
