Wild Pacific king (chinook) salmon is even higher in omega-3-rich oil than other salmon, making it the very richest available.
Line-caught on small boats, our king salmon are iced immediately and flash-frozen to preserve its fresh-caught quality.
Our random-weight offering contains 5 lbs of skinless-boneless portions of varying sizes, with approximately 14 individually packaged portions per box.
Your package may include smaller tail sections, which cook more quickly and are ideal for smaller appetites.
In addition to regular Red King salmon portions, your order may also include some Ivory King and/or Marbled King portions, which offer the same great flavor, texture, and omega-3 content.
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 – About 3,319mg of omega-3 EPA+DHA, or 6 to 13 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg).
- Vitamin D3 — About 400 IU in the optimal D3 form, which is more than most other fish, and more than any fortified food, approaching the child-to-adult US RDA of 600 IU.
- Astaxanthin – About 1.49 mg (red king). This red-orange pigment is a carotenoid-class nutrient with unique health benefits. Astaxanthin content varies by color: King portions have the most while Ivory King portions have the least.

"Love!" Review: Love the fish and this company! Highly recommend!
"Review" Review: Packaged goods are skimpy and seemingly smaller than labeled, and practical. - Thank you for sharing your feedback. The Random Weight King Salmon portions will range in individual portion size but each box will be at least 5 pounds as promised. Thank you!
"Nutritious time saver" Review: Perfect portion size. I take an individual serving, many/box, leave it in the fridge during the day, come home, pop it in the oven for 13-20" and have a tasty, nutritious main dish. Worth every penny : ) Thank you!

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.
