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 a bit of salt and a light alder smoke to retain moisture, then let the smoke do its thing. 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.

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.
