Wild Alaskan king salmon are prized by gourmets for their large, luscious flakes and high fat content. King salmon store this fat for their journeys up long river systems fed by glaciers in Alaska. When you eat Alaska king salmon, you can savor the extraordinary journey that these wild salmon take. Like a well-marbled steak, the fat that they store up for their journeys melts into the salmon, giving it a richness and velvety feel in the mouth. These are the good fats that cardiologists and nutritionists celebrate. Because of this heart-healthy fat, king salmon are perfect for grilling and searing, with just salt and pepper. King salmon needs little else. It’s so delicious. As one of our customers said upon receiving her order: “Line-caught salmon, nothing less than the best!!! Grilled it plain, seemed like it just came out of the Sea.”
