New Menu Item Feature: Honey Smoked Salmon
We're proud to announce a new addition to the MAD Greens menu: Honey Smoked Salmon from Colorado's own Honey Smoked Fish Company. We're adding this new ingredient because our guests quite simply loved the flavor! After conducting several taste tests, MAD Greens guests enjoyed the stronger flavor profile and thought the fish paired well with several of our bolder-tasting dressings.
Pictured: To prepare their fresh fish, the Honey Smoked Fish Company marinates the salmon for several hours using a secret blend of herbs and spices. Then the fish is smoked using hickory wood to ensure the meat retains maximum flavor and moisture.
"The flavor profile of this fish goes perfectly with many of our dressings, but particularly the Creamy Ginger Dressing, Caesar Dressing or Fat Free Balsamic," says Chef Dan Long, MAD Greens Co-Founder and Chief Culinary Innovator. "The Honey Smoked Salmon would also be great in our MAD Caesar, MAD Molly Brown or Don Quixote salads as the smoky flavor is a nice complement to those dishes."
Why else are we adding Honey Smoked Salmon to our menu? Because Honey Smoked Fish Company is awesome! They prepare their salmon with 100 percent natural ingredients, which means there are no unnatural preservatives, no artificial flavors, no coloring, no nitrates and no MSG! They also source their salmon from environmentally-friendly salmon farms across the United States. Sustainably-raised salmon means farmers follow strict protocols for salmon husbandry, customer safety and environmental responsibility. These protocols are especially important as overfishing is becoming a significant issue in wild-caught salmon which is negatively impacting the world’s natural salmon stock.
