Where is the salmon?

That is not true. Many fruit juice can be used to marinate and tenderize meat.

Pineapple and Papaya just to name a few. You don't even need to use the juice, the enzyme that does the tenderizing can be bought in powder form (Papain). Add this to any marinade and I promise you it will tenderize the meat. And yes I used to be a Chef. 

 

Just one of many carefully performed tests which suggest otherwise.

Back to the topic of this Thread... Why does the salmon appear white? If I received that for my plate I would be sending it back!

 

Farmed salmon (the majority of salmon you eat) is naturally grey in color.  They add stuff to the feed that turns them to the pink salmon color.  It's more expensive to make the salmon darker in color.  It doesn't really effect the taste and is primarily an aesthetic thing.  Most of the really deep orange-pink salmon you eat is also farmed, just given more of the coloring agent.

Yes, you are correct and it does not affect the taste or texture. I would still consider this to be a quality issue as most individuals still expect the salmon to have an orangeish/pink color to it. Appearance accounts for 75 percent of an individual's perception of quality. There is a saying in the restaurant world when it comes to presentation "your eyes eat the food before your mouth ever tastes it"
