The secret to our Smoked Wild Sockeye is simple. We start with the highest quality sockeye salmon, which is sourced humanely and sustainably. We add sea salt and non-GMO brown sugar for a traditional brine recipe. A light hardwood smoke retains moisture and lets you experience the fresh flavor. Our smoked salmon delivery helps make picnics, car or bicycle trips, and sporting events even tastier with high quality fish. You name the activity and smoked salmon will only improve your experience.
Ideas for Cooking with Smoked Salmon
Smoked fish is a remarkably versatile ingredient. Sure, you can eat it with bagels and cream cheese, but we like to get creative with our smoked salmon. Shred the fish over hot pasta, add it to a salad, or use it to top your scrambled eggs. This smoked salmon is also delicious as a blended dip, when baked into a brandade, or shredded into fritters. Smoked sockeye flavor is beautifully complemented by fennel, carrots, pea shoots, cucumbers, asparagus, chicory, and white grapefruit, among others. If you’re looking for inspiration, we recommend this resource from Bon Appétit.
Sockeye is among the best types of salmon for smoking. The high oil content allows the fish to absorb the smoke, resulting in a fuller-bodied taste profile. While often compared to king salmon, sockeye is often the better choice for smoking. The flesh is somewhat denser than king salmon, allowing it to stay firm during the smoking process.
No matter how you use it, this smoked sockeye makes for an easy but elegant dinner. Plus, it’s certified Kosher.
Handling Instructions – Smoked Salmon
Like our other wild salmon, this smoked sockeye salmon ships frozen to preserve the meat’s flavor and texture. After a few hours spent thawing, you’ll be ready to eat. This salmon can stay in the refrigerator for up to 45 days and even longer in the freezer.
Each portion is around 4 ounces, and customers can buy between 1 and 24 portions in a single container. Our smoked salmon delivery makes excellent gifts for friends and family, but we won’t judge if you keep it all for yourself.

Easily the best smoked salmon I’ve found. A little salty, a little smoky, a little sweet, still great salmon flavor.
I would give this seven stars out of five, but I’d be afraid of ripping the “star rating” matrix and robbing two stars from another worthy product somewhere else.

We love this smoked salmon and order it every year as part of a bulk buying club. We love supporting Lummi and their sustainable fishing practices. That is so important to us. I would have rated this a 5 but we were disappointed with the amount of packaging. Our order came in 3 boxes with each piece of fish wrapped in plastic and then a paper cover. Once we took the paper covers off all the fish fit into one box. Please consider using less packaging, especially with a bulk order.

I play Pickelball very early in the morning and this is my go to breakfast . The night before I put the smoked sockeye salmon in the refrigerator. Next morning it is thawed and ready to eat. Delicious. For lunch I make another quick meal of salmon on 5 grain flatbread with avocado and pico de gallo. Less than 5 minutes to make. So easy, so quick and SO Delicious! This is my second order in a month.

Delicious! Very pleased. Will be ordering again. And I appreciate that your packaging is much more eco-friendly than other companies.
Delicious, as always — my grandson’s favorite food! I appreciate that there is less of the cardboard packaging this year.

This is an amazing product, but I’m taking one star off for the packaging. I wish it had been more clear that the Smoke Wild Sockeye Salmon and Smoked Wild King Salmon would be shipped in dry ice. These two additions to the order also required a large, non-recyclable styrofoam cooler, which in turn required a much larger cardboard box and significant additional packing materials. Had I understood that before placing my order, I would have restricted it to the Keta pouches which required no refrigeration.

Just purchased a 10lb case of the sockeye and it is *amazing*! The best I have ever eaten. My only regret/request is to cut down on the packaging. Way too much wasted plastic.
Sierra Montoya –
Thank you for this great feedback. We are working on updating our packaging and hope to have some smaller packaging options early next year.

My husband and I transported 10 lbs of this beautiful sockeye with us to New Zealand for our close friends wedding,needless to say the Kiwis raved about it. A little bit of home for the bride to share with her new family.

What lake/river does the salmon come from?
This season our Alaskan sockeye are caught by setnetters on the Ugashik River, the southernmost of the five Bristol Bay river systems. A processor sits in the river and freezes them immediately after being caught. They are considered the best sockeye that Bristol Bay has to offer.

My family recently devoured several packets of Lummi Island Wild’s smoked sockeye – it was moist, firm, and delicious! The portions are sized perfectly for hiking trips, and we were able to freeze several – with no impact on the taste or texture – for use several months after purchasing them. I love that these fish are caught using a responsible fishing technique that protects non-target species. I highly recommend – I’m ordering more.
