- Wild Pacific King Salmon
King Salmon is the richest, most luscious of all Pacific salmon species — and a very few of these fabulous fish feature a striking ivory hue.
To capture its fresh-caught quality, our king salmon is line-harvested from small boats, immediately iced, and then flash-frozen within a few hours of leaving the wate

King salmon nutrition
In addition to ample protein, King salmon provide three beneficial natural food factors in abundance per 6 oz portion, and will vary annually and by harvest location:
- Omega-3s — Provides six to 13 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg).
- Vitamin D3 – Provides one- to two-thirds of the child-to-adult US RDA (600 IU) ... more than almost all other fish, and far more than any fortified food.
- Astaxanthin — About 1.49 mg (regular red king only). This red-orange pigment is a carotenoid-class nutrient with unique health benefits. Astaxanthin content varies by color: Red King portions offer the most while Ivory King portions have the least.

"Ivory king salmon" Review: My wife and I normally purchase salmon from our local supermarket. We've recently purchased a 6 oz. portion of wild ivory king salmon and 6 portions of king salmon. Immediately after dinner. We agreed that store purchasing salmon locally
"best salmon!" Review: I have ordered this Ivory salmon for 2 years. It is absolutely my favorite! I have noticed in my latest order that the portions are smaller - 5 1/4 to 5 3/4 ounces each piece before cooking. Set the scales again Vital Choice!
"a great sauce for this fish" Review: This fish is AMAZING. Here is a classic French style five minute sauce that's perfect for it, made in the time it takes to bake the fish: in a small pot saute minced shallot in a little butter for about a minute, add white wine and simmer down a little for a minute, then add fresh lemon juice and simmer another minute or less, then "monter au beurre" - turn off the flame and add pieces of cold butter (from the fridge, just not room temp) while stirring continuously until it turns opaque/creamy. Salt and white pepper. Done.

Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months. Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).
NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.
Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging.
For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture package). Prior to cooking, do not allow fish to reach temperatures above 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius).
Cooking and serving tips
- Rinse fish quickly in cold, clean water.
- Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes, until only the very center is still translucent.
- Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes, until just cooked through to center before serving.
- NOTE: It is perfectly safe and healthful to serve our fish raw or partly cooked, because flash-freezing has rendered it 100% sushi-safe.
- Enliven your fish entree with seasonings such as Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix or other herb-spice blends.
- Add the seasonings of your choice to a little olive oil and marinate the fish, refrigerated, for 30-60 minutes or overnight. Or, simply mist fish lightly with olive oil or macadamia nut oil and dust with seasonings before cooking.
