Easy Salmon salmon burger contains medium- to small-sized minced chunks of wild salmon that are perfect for shaping into patties, enclosing in savory baked pastries, sandwiches, pastas, salads, or as a stir-fry addition to a rice bowl. The salmon burger is great for actual burgers, of course. One could also use it for savory salmon tarts, individual hand pies, and pot pies–mix it seasoned but uncooked with the rest of the filling and it will bake inside the crust.
Easy Salmon is easy because it’s an easy and economic way to incorporate wild salmon into your weekly routine. Easy Salmon is also a family-friendly way to get our premium-quality Alaska Gold™ wild salmon delivered to your door. Easy Salmon’s versatility means that you can prepare a wide range of recipes in which you’d normally include chicken, ground beef, or canned salmon (but the taste is much better!).
With its milder flavor and convenient packaging, our Easy Salmon pairs well with so many recipes. Salmon tacos and salmon burgers easily come to mind. Think of Easy Salmon as seafood’s version of ground beef. Easy Salmon is not portions or fillets, which we also sell, but the part of the salmon not used for portions and fillets, minced and placed into one-pound bags and frozen. So Easy Salmon is the very same quality as the salmon portions and fillets we sell–it just comes in different packaging.
You’re getting the great taste and nutritional benefits of wild salmon—heart-healthy protein, source of Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D. Because of the wide range of possibilities to prepare Easy Salmon, it’s a perfect way to introduce kids to eating wild salmon and to get the recommended two to three weekly servings of seafood.
We have our own suggested easy salmon recipes here.
Here’s how Easy Salmon is packaged. After we cut our wild salmon fillets and portions, we are left with the frame of the salmon, a long strip of meat between the top/dorsal region of the fish and the mid-section of the fish. We use a scoop-like spoon to remove the meat off the frame, mince it, and put it into 1-pound vacuum-sealed bags to make what some in the industry call “spoon salmon” and we call Easy Salmon. These are available in 10-pound and 20-pound boxes shipped to your door on dry ice. Easy Salmon is raw salmon. You cook it at home with your own recipes or see these easy salmon recipes. Recipes that call for ground beef, sausage, or chicken can easily be made using Easy Salmon.
**Note that our California salmon trollers have had a fantastic season fishing for king salmon. Some of our Easy Salmon packages in this recent batch will be packaged in our California Gold box. These California king salmon are excellent!
