Alaska Sockeye Salmon is one of the most abundant species in Alaska.   It is praised for its deep red meat that retains its color throughout cooking, and brings dramatic impact to any presentation. The high oil content provides a distinctive, rich flavor and firm texture.

The average weight of a wild caught Sockeye Salmon is approximately 3 kg (6.6 lbs) and they can grow to be almost one meter (40 inches) in length. Sockeyes are suitable for grilling, broiling, sautéing, baking, poaching, steaming, and smoking but can also be enjoyed raw as “sushi” as they have been flash frozen within hours from when they were caught in order to preserve taste and texture of the meat.

Highly Nutritious

Based on a serving size of 100g/3.5 oz, wild Sockeye salmon has the following nutritional values:
