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.
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.
