If you eat much salmon, you’ve probably noticed that gray-brown layer between the skin and the flesh. It has a pretty intense flavor. Have you ever wondered what it is and if it’s OK to eat? “It’s the insulating fat for the fish, so it’s just the fat,” said Dr.
Leftover salmon can go bad too, especially when left at room temperature for hours. So, as a rule of thumb, if your salmon looks pale and discolored, it’s best to just throw it away.

After salmon is purchased, it may be refrigerated for 1 to 2 days – the “sell-by” date on the package may expire during that storage period, but the salmon will remain safe to use after the sell by date if it has been properly stored.
