Our Orca Safe, wild king salmon have a rich buttery fresh flavor, nice flake and umami finish. Clean tasting because every fish is individually handled, immediately slush iced, and custom processed. These beautiful king salmon fillets will be the centerpiece of your next barbecue! Wild King salmon is prized for its high oil content, firm texture and rich flavor. These fish are delicious and can handle high heat. Grill, broil, or sear until tender and flaky, no additional butter needed, serve with sauteed vegetables and wild rice for a complete and decadent meal.
These kings are caught by Upper Skagit tribal fishing families who live, bleed, and slush ice the fish for us. By working the waters with local independent fishers who respect both salmon and our environment, we can ensure the highest quality wild kings available. These are orca safe king salmon, which means they are caught with sustainable gear in a terminal area, well past the point that a fish might make a meal for an Orca. The fishery is also carefully co-managed by the tribe, so you can feel great about supporting this provider.
Kings are the largest of the species with their average weight in the Salish Sea being 15-20 lbs. Its high oil content makes it a prime candidate for grilling, broiling, sautéing, baking, poaching, steaming, and smoking.
These are cut into a convenient 32 oz fillet portion, boneless and skin-on – Enough for 5-7 servings.
