King Salmon is always a winner in the kitchen with its high oil content, firm texture and rich flavor. But did you know that the color of the meat can range from deep red to white, to a mixture of the two?
Seafood chefs rave about the melt-in-your-mouth flavor of the white, also called “Ivory” king, but most don’t prepare them much differently than the red-fleshed fish. Marbled King salmon is very similar to the ivory, with some shades of red running through it.
The only way to know for sure which one you like best, is to join us in some taste-testing research and try them all side by side!
The curious genetic twist that determines the pigmentation is highly unpredictable. So red, white, and marbled salmon all swim in the same school, and until they’re filleted, no one can tell which color they might be. This anomaly only occurs in about 10% of wild-caught Kings in the Pacific Northwest.
