Introduction to Dry-Aged Fish
Dry aging fish is a process of curing fish with a combination of cold temperatures, humidity, and air movement. This curing process helps preserve the fish while also deepening its flavor and enhancing its texture. The process is similar to aging beef, but it is much shorter. For example, beef is typically aged for 30-90 days, while fish is usually aged for a 10-50days. The primary benefit of dry-aged fish is that it unlocks the flavors of the fish and makes them more complex and interesting. It also helps tenderize the flesh, making it juicier and easier to cook. This method of curing fish is particularly popular in sushi restaurants, where chefs dry-age fish to bring out its flavor and texture.
The Benefits of Dry-Aging Fish
When it comes to the benefits of dry-aging fish, there are many.
Unlocks the flavors of the fish, making it more complex and interesting. This is due to the process of oxidation, which breaks down the proteins in the fish and helps develop a more intense flavor.

Helps preserve the fish, by removing moisture and controlling the temperature and humidity, the fish can be stored for longer periods of time without spoiling. This makes it easier to transport and store, while also ensuring that it will stay fresh and flavorful.
How to Dry-Age Fish?
Dry-aging fish is a fairly simple process, but it requires some care and attention.
The first step is to select the right type of fish. The best fish for dry-aging are those with a high fat content, such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel. Thin-fleshed fish, such as sole and flounder, are not ideal for dry-aging.
At AD Butcher & Steak, we are using both Atlantic Salmon and Norwegian Fjord Trout.
Once you have selected the fish, you need to prepare it for dry-aging. This involves removing the scales and trimming away any fat or sinew. The fish should then be placed in a container with a lid, and covered with a layer of salt. The container should be kept in a cool, dry place, such as a specialized refrigerator.
