Any supermarket or delikatessen: "Smoked or cured (gravlax) salomon" Top 5 Page for this destination Norway Shopping Tip by Saagar
Norway Shopping: 39 reviews and 35 photos
What to buy: Varieties of smoked, cured and fresh salomon are good-value gifts to be taken out of Norway. It comes cheap here (not kidding!).
At the duty-free shop at Oslo airport the quality of the salomon is good, but the price is high. You can buy the same thing much cheaper in a supermarket. Look around and you will notice a variety of prices for what seems to be the exact same fish and dish.
If you find the salomon too oily find a smoked trout instead (rokt orret), which has a denser and in my opinion more tasty flesh. If you are really looking for the best quality, go to a fish monger and ask for a junipher-smoked one. Some supermarkets may also have top-quality smoked salomon if you just look around.
Pack your fish, cured, smoked or fresh, in a cooler bag.
Bad quality smoked salomon is exessively oily/fat, a bit squashy and softer flesh. Good quality shows by firmer, darker and drier flesh.
What to pay: Fresh wild salomon: 150 up NOK/kg (superb!)
Fresh farmed salomon: 50 NOK/kg
Frozen farmed rainbow trout: 30 NOK/kg
Medium quality smoked salomon: 90-110 NOK/kg
High quality smoked salomon: 120-150 NOK/kg
Smoked trout: 90-120 NOK/kg
