    Each species of wild salmon features its own characteristic flavor and texture, and has its admirers.

    But our most popular salmon features a deep, rich flavor that many Alaskans consider the "truest" salmon taste.

    This fabulously healthful fish abounds in omega-3s, vitamin D, and more ... see "Sockeye salmon: A true superfood", below.

    Our skin-on/boneless portions have even more omega-3s than their skinless counterparts, thanks to the fatty layer under the skin.

    Why is Vital Choice sockeye so clearly superior?

    Salmon connoisseurs find that our sockeye easily beats the very best that supermarkets and specialty stores can offer.

    The reasons are simple, but very hard for others to replicate.

    First and foremost, the relationships we fostered during decades of fishing Alaskan waters give us rare access to the very finest of these fish.

    And our sockeye comes from smaller harvest regions ("fisheries") that host fewer boats and feature faster processing ... so our sockeye is flash-frozen within hours of harvest to capture its fresh-caught quality.

    These advantages explain why chefs and savvy salmon shoppers consider Vital Choice wild Alaskan sockeye such a rare catch!

    Sockeye salmon: A true super food

    As well as ample protein, sockeye offers abundant omega-3s and unrivaled levels of vitamin D and astaxanthin (as-tuh-zan-thin).

    On average, each 6-oz. sockeye portion provides:

    • Omega-3s – 1,500-2,000mg (mostly EPA and DHA), or 6 to 8 times the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake (250mg) recommended by most world health authorities. (Please see the Nutrition tab on this page for the current omega-3 content of our sockeye salmon, which varies by harvest year and region.)
    • Vitamin D3 – About 1,110 IU (in the optimal D3 form). This is double the child-to-adult US RDA (600 IU), more than any other fish or salmon species, and far more than farm-raised salmon or any fortified food, such as milk.
    • Astaxanthin – 6-7mg*. This red-orange pigment is a carotenoid-class nutrient with unique health benefits.

    Pure and wholesome

    Wild Alaskan salmon rank among the purest of all ocean fish, which is why the EPA, FDA, and consumer advocates recommend it without reservation.

    Sockeye vs. King and Silver salmon

    Wild Alaskan Sockeye is richer than our silver (coho) salmon and a bit leaner than our king (chinook) salmon, with a firmer texture than either fish.

    "So Pleased" Aleta Blankenship-Coco on 10/16/2020 06:08 Review: I coked my first 2 packets yesterday. The size of the portions was perfect for us. The selection of the fish .the trimming by your company and how it is flash frozen shows attention to high quality. I prepared the salmon and we had it on a salad. We enjoyed every bite and the salmon tasted like it was just caught. We will be ordering again!!

  • Recipes
  • Serving/Care

    Storage

    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.

    Thawing

    Thaw under refrigeration below 38° F (3° C). Use within 12 hours for best results. To quick-thaw, place unopened frozen package in cool water for 30 minutes or until fish is flexible.

    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.
