“Waste not, want not,” is how the proverb goes. Like many truisms, it’s common sense. Save what’s left over (instead of throwing it away) and you’ll have more for another day.
Sometimes, we’ll ask a supplier to save “what’s left over” from the creation of a Trader Joe’s product, and reserve those unused portions to be packaged up and sold separately. We’ve used this approach with our bacon [Trader Joe’s Uncured Bacon Ends & Pieces], salami [Columbus Peppered Salame Ends and Pieces], and several other items. Our latest application of this ‘waste not’ approach has produced Trader Joe’s Wild Sockeye Smoked Salmon Ends & Pieces.
The supplier of our regular sliced Wild Sockeye Smoked Salmon harvests its Red Salmon from the crystal clear, icy waters of the North Pacific (in Alaska), and prepares it using a traditional dry-curing method, including natural Applewood smoke. After they slice the fillets for the original product, randomly sized Ends & Pieces remain. Though unusually shaped, these pieces are of the same quality, and have the same delightful flavor as the full slices do.
Their size and shape are perfect for flaking into salads, eggs, or onto bagels with cream cheese. Our Smoked Salmon Ends & Pieces are also ready-made for sandwiches, or for blending into pasta dishes and chowders.
In addition to being unusually shaped, our Wild Sockeye Smoked Salmon Ends and Pieces are also unusually priced. At $4.99 for the eight ounce package, you won’t likely find such an incredible salmon value anywhere else!
