Sometimes called "red salmon" or "blueback salmon," Sockeye Salmon are decidedly not blue. They are, however, decidedly delicious. These are boneless, skin-on, whole fillets of wild caught Sockeye Salmon from the icy cold waters of the Pacific off the coast of Alaska. Sockeye is known for its superb flavor and wonderfully firm texture. This texture makes Sockeye easy to cook in any number of venues—from oven to broiler and stovetop to grill. Sockeye also features the bright orange-red color most associated with salmon. Especially in this whole-side fillet presentation, that dazzling color makes an impressive statement on a platter on the center of your dining table.
The fish is filleted and frozen within hours of being caught, preserving its freshness. When it's time to cook, let the fish thaw and season just the way you want—this salmon is flavorful enough that it doesn't need much in terms of seasoning. Cook it skin-side-down and prepare to be amazed, impressed and excited. You may be just as amazed, impressed and excited by our price. We're selling each Whole Wild Sockeye Salmon Fillet for $10.99 a pound, everyday, until it's gone. When it's gone, we’ll have to wait until the next salmon season to get more.
