Wild King Salmon

5-6 oz Boneless King / Skin-on Salmon Portions

Description

Our wild king salmon portions have a rich and buttery flavor with soft-textured flakes and a velvety finish.  Also known as chinook, tyee, or blackmouth salmon, king salmon are prized for their high oil content, firm texture, and rich flavor. The fish’s flesh color can range from deep red to pale white, or “ivory.” This prized winter white flesh is only found in about 10% of kings. In most cases, though, buyers should expect a pale pink or orange color from their king salmon.

King salmon have consistently won blind taste tests among salmon aficionados. Kings are the largest of the species, typically sitting at an average weight between 15 and 20 lbs. The fish’s high oil content makes it a prime candidate for grilling, broiling, sautéing, baking, poaching, steaming, and smoking – almost every salmon preparation will taste good on a king.

For those new to buying wild king salmon online, know that there is a running debate among fish lovers about which is the best salmon – king or sockeye. We have to admit that these wild king salmon portions will give sockeye fans a run for their money.

 

Wild King Salmon Preparation Tips 

As one of the more decadent salmon types, king salmon doesn’t require a lot of effort in the kitchen. The fish’s natural flavor and texture are enough to stand out as a main course. That said, we prefer our king salmon grilled on a cedar plank with a sprinkling of sea salt. To finish squeeze some fresh lemon juice onto the skin with a few twists of freshly ground black pepper. When buying wild king salmon online, we recommend a simple preparation to better experience the fish’s flavor.

 

Handling Instructions – Wild King Salmon

If you buy wild king salmon online from Lummi Island Wild, expect to receive a delivery of frozen, not thawed, fish. All of our king salmon ships frozen in order to preserve the fish’s delicate taste and texture. Once the package is received, you can either begin to defrost your king salmon portions for dinner that evening or keep them frozen for a later meal. King salmon has a higher oil content than other types of fish, which means it will spoil faster. That said, you can safely store it in a freezer for at least six weeks.

    The cuts of salmon were thick and delicious! They cooked up beautifully.

    This was my first order to “sample” different types of fish you offer for sale in anticipation of increasing my seafood intake & becoming a regular long-term customer. I appreciate that your phone sales person was pleasant & helpful in suggesting the type of salmon to order based on my preferences. However, my final decision was based on the photos that are shown on your website. I enjoyed the clean taste of the salmon, but was disappointed that the individually wrapped portion of Coho I received was really very thin & nothing like what was pictured.

    Best salmon we have ever had!! Even the kids ate it!

  9. Cecelia (verified owner)

    I am glad to be able to purchase wild king salmon – particularly since a visit to the grocery story is not an option. However, all 6 portions appeared to either be from a very small fish or from tail end. They were more consistent which helped with the cooking but it is very hard to cook something this thin

  10. Maryann (verified owner)

    Absolutely delicious!!! It was moist, tender…..just perfect!

  11. Beth Wynn

    I’ll reorder this fish because it’s difficult to buy fresh fish now. However, although the quality was good upset with the cut-the fish was very this and every piece was from the tail end-not at all what is pictured in your photo.

    • Ian

      Hi Beth, Thanks for your feedback. We are focused on “ocean run” fish. This means we utilize the entire fish – including the tail section. Typically an order of 6 portions might have one tail end. We’ll be reaching out to you to follow up.

  12. PATRICIA PICKARD (verified owner)

    Fabulous. Just fabulous.

  13. Heather Vogel Dowty (verified owner)

    Love this salmon. Will definitely order from you again!

  14. Justin G (verified owner)

    We were pretty disappointed with the salmon. The fillets were incredibly thin and not like the picture which made them look like nicer cuts from the thicker section of the salmon. The fish tasted fine but the texture wasn’t pleasant and due to the thinness they are very difficult to cook to medium rare.

    • Ian

      Hi Justin – We’ll be following up with you to see what went wrong here. Thank you for taking the time to let us know.

  15. Maggie (verified owner)

    Fabulous! Thank you 🙂

  16. ILENE Dietz (verified owner)

    The best as always. Will re-order

  17. Julie Ogdon (verified owner)

    I was so excited to order from this highly rated company but I was disappointed in the King Salmon. Not one of the filets looked like the photos and the texture was unusual. The filets we received are very thin and not like any King I’ve ever had or seen.

    • Ian

      Hi Julie – We’ll be reaching out to make this right. We are out on our Baker Spring King fishery now (they will be available here next week). Baker King fat context, flavor, and texture is unmatched – highly recommended!

  18. Randy Clancy (verified owner)

    Incredibly delicious, and quick and seamless delivery – will definitely be ordering again. Thank you!

  19. Pat Finnell (verified owner)

    Absolutely delicious. Further, this company was extremely prompt and gracious in handling a delivery issue which was resolved quickly. I will continue to do business with them and have already told others about them.

  20. Bryan (verified owner)

    Salmon came as promised. Had good flavor, but frankly was too lean for us and was a bit thin as well. We are used to a bit more of a fatty salmon. Added oil to it the second time we had it and that helped. Still have a few to go, but probably wouldn’t but again. Sorry

    • Ian

      Thanks for your feedback. For our highest fat content kings.. heads up we start working with Baker River Spring Kings at the end of this week. These are spectacular and an eating experience like no other. Thanks again

  21. Sue Sell (verified owner)

    So wonderful to have. More now than ever! I’ve poached fillets, grilled and baked them. All delicious.

  22. Lisa Heilman-Cozzalio (verified owner)

    Salmon is delicious; however, the shipping to CA is more expensive than the fish.

    • Sierra Montoya

      We offer free, 2-day shipping for orders over $99. Glad you are enjoying the Wild King Salmon portions!

  23. Kimberly Heilman

  29. Sage

    Is this salmon sushi grade/safe to eat as sushi? Thank you in advance!

    • Sierra Montoya

      Hi Sage,
      Also check out our Reefnet Coho Salmon fillets, Baker Lake Sockeye fillets and portions or the Albacore Tuna medallions and loins for more delicious sashimi-grade fish!
      Thanks!
