Ginger Soy Side of Salmon

A side of salmon varies in size depending on its origins and species. Farmed Atlantic salmon is usually 3 to 3-1/2 lb (1.5 to 1.75 kg), and Pacific salmon varies at fishmongers from 1-1/2 to 3 lb (750 g to 1.5 kg) depending on species. Sockeye is small, while King and Chinook are large.
