King salmon nutrition
In addition to ample protein, Pacific King salmon offers abundant omega-3s, as well as unrivaled levels of vitamin D and astaxanthin (as-tuh-zan-thin).
- 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 (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.
Wild king (Chinook) salmon top all wild species for fat and omega-3 content, and is very rich in vitamin D

"Delicious King Salmon" Review: This is really delicious tasting king salmon. We bake it in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes and it is so moist and flavorful.
"The best quality king salmon you will find" Review: We have been ordering all of our seafood from Vital Choice for a few years, and the king salmon is one of our favorites that is always included in our orders. It's moist and tender and a nice pink color without added food coloring as some are. I always get the portions with the skin on even though we don't eat the skin as this adds Omega-3 to the salmon. We wouldn't buy our seafood anywhere other than Vital Choice. Everything is of top quality and should anything go wrong, customer service is excellent. You won't be disappointed.
"Ok" Review: There is no mistaking this for fresh king salmon. It’s a bit dry and fishy. I’m really disappointed and won’t be ordering again. Hello Carey, We are sorry to hear your disappointment in the King Salmon. Our Customer Service Team will be reaching out to you shortly to discuss your order and cooking suggestions.

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.
