The vast majority of keta salmon are net-caught as they approach streams and near the end of their lives. In contrast, our Alaska Gold wild keta salmon are caught on hook and line and, by definition, these salmon are actively feeding, and therefore at the peak of their quality. Being line-caught, they are also well taken care of on the boat by the fishermen rather than sitting for long periods of time in big nets. The difference in being line-caught cannot be underestimated. Line-caught wild keta salmon is exceedingly rare, making up less than one percent of keta salmon harvested. These are special fish!
These keta salmon portions are a more economic way of getting wild salmon into your diet than our line-caught king salmon and coho salmon. All of these wild salmon are really nutritious, heart-healthy proteins, and the keta is a way to get wild salmon in your diet without quite the spend of a king salmon, for example. The mild flavor of keta salmon makes it suitable for pairing with flavorful sauces, like this Keta Salmon Curry with Lemongrass and Galanga Recipe or this Sweet Chili Keta Salmon recipe.
These boneless, skin-on 6-ounce keta salmon portions are perfect for feeding the family.
