King (chinook) salmon is the richest, most luscious member of the Pacific salmon family, with the highest omega-3 levels.
Line-caught on small boats, our king salmon is iced immediately and flash-frozen to preserve its fresh-caught quality.
We cut some of king into "petite" 4-oz. portions, perfect for smaller people — including kids — and appetites!
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.

"BEST SALMON EVER" Review: This salmon is consistently the best salmon I ever had. I’ve been ordering for years.
"Petite king salmon" Review: Nice size pieces but for some reason, the 4oz. don't taste as good as the 6oz. So if you care about the flavor, get the 6oz king salmon. Hello Maureen, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in your recent order of our four ounces, King Salmon. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you shortly to discuss your order. Thank you, Vital Choice Team
"Not worth it! WholeFoods is better!!!!" Review: Both the salmon and halibut portions are tough and dry regardless of how cooked or limited cooking. I’ve see this before in Europe where they say fresh fish is flash freezed and then frozen for restaurant use. Save yourself the money if you have a WholeFoods in your area. Previously frozen salmon and halibut are 1000 times better and you can get it portion sized. Hello Stephanie, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in your recent order of our King Salmon and Halibut. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you shortly to discuss your order. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team

RecipesSlow-Roasted Salmon on Spinach SaladWild Salmon and spinach greens dressed in tangy raspberry vinaigrette … the perfect, perfectly simple solution for a light, elegant, healthful, vibrantly colorful dinner!You’ll find this recipe in our upcoming Fall, 2012 Vital Choice catalog … which follows in the footsteps of ourrecent national award-winners.We’ll let you know when it’s available.Ingredients4 (6 oz each) boneless wild salmon portions*2 tsp sea salt2 tsp freshly ground pepper½ pound of spinach leaves, washed, dried and cut into shreds½ cup whole organic hazelnuts, chopped and toasted4 oz Gorgonzola cheese, crumbledDressing¼ cup balsamic vinegar½ cup extra virgin olive oil2 T seedless raspberry jam1 T Dijon mustard1 T honey½ tsp sea salt½ tsp freshly ground pepper
- Rub each fillet with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Arrange fillets skin-side down on a parchment-lined sheet pan; set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes while the oven preheats to 250°F.
- Meanwhile combine the spinach, hazelnuts, cherries and Gorgonzola in a wooden salad bowl and gently toss.
- Put the salmon in the oven for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until creamy and emulsified. Drizzle the salad with half of the dressing and gently toss. Divide among four plates.
- Check the salmon with an instant-read thermometer. Even though the fish may look underdone, it is fully cooked when the internal temperature reaches 125°-130°F.
- Top each salad with a salmon fillet and drizzle with some of the dressing. (serves 4)
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.
