Fish Friday: Trader Joe’s Salmon Jerky

9 Nov

I’m a jerky fan from way back. It reminds me of my dad and cross-country road trips with the family when I was little.

I also love salmon. So, when I saw Wild Salmon Jerky on the shelf at TJ’s, I had to try it.

The Wild Salmon Jerky experience

I have to say, at first bite, I wasn’t sure it was blog worthy. Upon second bite, I still wasn’t sure. After the third and fourth bites, I still wondered. But, here’s the thing, there was a fifth and sixth bite, and I kept on biting.

It’s predictably and thankfully salty, but the salmon has a kind of funk to it – a little smoky with a fishy tang. Then, just when you think the flavor’s packed its punch, here comes the hint of maple syrup. One thing’s for sure: It’s not your daddy’s jerky.

I recommend it if you have adventurous taste buds and appreciate the stronger flavors.

Thank you for putting the Wild in the Salmon Jerky, TJ’s.

And thank you, too, for reading and following Things I Love at Trader Joe’s!
