Review: I forgot to order the skinless but this with the skin on tasted fabulous. We just put avocado oil or mayo lots of seasonings and throw them into aluminum to place on BBQ. Take off the aluminum and the skin comes easily off too.
"Excellent salmon"Valerie T on 10/8/2020 4:14 PMRating:
Review: Loved the idea of a salmon combo, offering the opportunity to sample three different kinds. Also like the fact that it’s wild caught. The packaging is fantastic. Not only is the fish frozen, but the dry ice was still frozen too.
(Have ordered from other companies and the fish was close to defrosting)
Pan-fried the salmon and it was delicious. Have also
ordered Chilean Sea Bass and it was out-of-this-world good! Will definitely order again from your company.

Review: every product from Vital Choice is exceptiona. - always. The sampler is representative of that very fact.
"Fresh and tasty"Dean Andersen on 3/29/2019 5:37 PMRating:
Review: These 3 types of salmon each had their own taste, color & texture. Very fresh! The seasoning packet made it easy to marinate.

Review: Excellent food
"Not quite what I ordered"Elizabeth on 10/30/2018 10:11 AMRating:
Review: I really like the salmon in this box. I haven't yet tried the cod that was there instead of the sockeye salmon. ( 6 fillets- 2 were cod, 2 silver salmon, 2 king salmon) - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your order did not arrive as expected. Our Customer Service Team will follow up with you today. Thank you!
"good so far"jeff on 6/9/2018 10:27 AMRating:
Review: I've only tried the king and sockeye thus far.
It's too early to review definitively, but so far as follows...
Both were non fishy tasting "so far". That is the biggest thing for me. Seems almost every time I buy frozen salmon from either publix or trader joe's, their salmon is fishy tasting.
The Vitalchoice king salmon was very good....not great, but very good. I had hoped for thicker more "luscious" pieces of king. They were medium thickness fish. My rating of 4 vs 5 stars might be partially because of frozen vs fresh too. I had just had some excellent fresh baked salmon at my Mom's before trying these. Hers were melt-in-mouth tasty. These lacked that quality of "juicyness" that a really good fresh salmon has. I was careful not to overcook too...internal of 120. Again, the lack of thickness in these filets takes off a star for me. The sockeye was flavorful, not fishy, but sort of lacking moisture even when cooked to 120. For this sockeye, I will shoot for 110 next time.
"I'll be ordering again!!"Ashlyn on 5/10/2018 5:44 AMRating:
Review: My package came on time and everything was still completely frozen. The product is absolutely delicious! I am so happy to be able to get my fish from an honest source and I will definitely be ordering again soon. Thank you Vital Choice!!

"Three way treat"Sharon on 3/2/2018 5:33 AMRating:
Review: Silver Salmon is a thick meaty fish. Baked with a walnut herb mix on top. Sockeye is very moist, light and flaky. Excellent grilled outside. King Salmon is my favorite. No matter how I fix it the strong flavor comes through.
"Perfect"Krbnyc on 2/24/2018 7:55 AMRating:
Review: Outstanding quality. Flavorful and moist when baked as instructed on the tasty spice packet.

Review: I've been loving eating the salmon fillets shashimi style with some organic picketed ginger and coconut aminos. Way better than the local shushi restaurant and cheaper!
"OK"Jay on 10/30/2017 12:08 PMRating:
Review: So far, I've eaten the Sockeye, poached with dill, and I didn't think it much better than the frozen Alaskan Sockeye I get in the grocery store. But it was very good!

"My future fish menus have now been poreselected"Gerard J R on 8/6/2017 8:18 PMRating:
Review: I am a new customer and have just had my first Vital Choice salmon. It was the best piece of fresh fish I have had. I simply steamed it with some lemon juice. It has me looking forward to the next piece. I foresee placing frequent orders of frozen, pouched and canned fish in the future, and a long friendship with Mr. Hartnell and his staff
"Salmon Sampler"Sharon on 8/4/2017 7:23 AMRating:
Review: Decided best way to find one I liked best was to buy a mixed sample. Grilled and baked two different ones at a time, then did taste test. Discovered what was different in color, taste, richness, meaty or flaky, cook times and sauce or no sauce. King was the best flavor and texture. Silver was flakey. Least and would not buy again Sockeye was chewy and dry.
Fun way to try all your products.
Thank you for your feedback. A customer service agent will contact you today.
"Sampler review..."Wanda J on 8/3/2017 5:36 AMRating:
Review: These are the best salmon fishes around anywhere in the world--no kidding! This is the best fish I've ever tasted, and I'm NOT a fish cooking expert; but this comes out great EVERY time! Love it; would highly recommend it all!
"It's all good"Laurie on 7/20/2017 8:11 AMRating:
Review: I ordered the sampler to see which type of salmon we liked best. We couldn't decide. They're all good. I immediately placed another order. I'm so grateful to have found this company. The fish is a millions times better than the grocery store and I trust we're eating what the label says we're eating. Thanks for doing such a great job!
"Salmon"Al H on 7/12/2017 1:01 PMRating:
Review: The Wild Pacific Salmon is the best salmon I ever tasted. Have had some on luxury cruise ships and at fine restaurants but none compares to this one.
"My view."R J Martin on 6/30/2017 5:50 AMRating:
Review: Very good sampler...the line caught salmon is the best.
"FRIDAYS"KBJ on 6/24/2017 10:17 AMRating:
Review: Friday we tried the Sockeye Salmon out of the Variety pack. They were a nice firm clean cut that baked with the Seasoning. We really enjoyed the salmon with Sprouts.
"Silver Salmon"Ron C on 6/23/2017 6:00 AMRating:
Review: Excellent taste and very firm meat. Will try this again. Have not tried other two yet.
"Wild Salmon Trio Sampler"Kristie L on 6/20/2017 10:23 AMRating:
Review: WOW! I ordered this sampler for a party I was having. Talk about fresh, juicy, flavorful wild salmon!!! Everyone truly loved the salmon, with a few guests asking where I got it! It was a hit, for sure! Thank you so much Vital Choice for making my party a success. I love your products and shall continue to buy from you. Kristie.

"Great Product"Karen on 4/22/2017 8:50 AMRating:
Review: I ordered the Salmon Sampler and just baked the salmon at 425 for 12 minutes with EVOO on foil, salt and peppered to have even tasting field. Dabbed with a bit of butter and lemon after cooking. No fishy taste in Silver, Sockeye, or King. I think the King 1 more minute due to thickness and the Sockeye 1 less minute (my oven temp is right on). Silver's taste and texture is my personal favorite then Sockeye, then King. Will order Silver again!
"Nourished"Lee P on 4/16/2017 3:34 PMRating:
Review: For my special Easter dinner, I made my trio sampler with the salmon marinade. I have never tasted salmon like this before. The Vital Choice technique makes a delicious difference, the Rolls-Royce of Salmon. My favorite was the Silver, but I can easily see how someone would prefer the King or Sockeye. They were all so delightful and I have fun doing tastings. Thank you again and again. 3 times.
"Wild Salmon Sampler review..."Wanda J on 2/17/2017 5:33 AMRating:
Review: This is premium fish at its finest! The King was the best fish I've ever tasted! Highly recommend! And I love the marinade which comes along with this==very good!
"Can't choose my favorite"Kelsey H on 1/31/2017 7:18 PMRating:
Review: This was a gift to my grandparents – and when pressed which of the trio was their favorite, she said it was impossible because each tasted equally as fantastic as the other!

"Wild Salmon Sampler Trio of Salmon Sampler Set"Dana Wickes on 1/14/2017 6:48 AMRating:
Review: I was disappointed with the marinade on the Silver salmon as well as the Silver salmon itself. I've never had Silver salmon so I was excited to try it. I've cooked Sockeye and King salmon many times over the years. The marinade mixture had an odd taste and didn't really lend itself to the Silver salmon. I'm hesitant to try it on the other fish in the sampler. The Silver salmon cooked faster than expected and ended up dry and lacked any distinguishable flavor. I would not order this particular salmon again.
Thank you for choosing Vital Choice. We are very sorry for the disappointment in the Silver Salmon and Marinade. Our Customer Service Department will be reaching out to you shortly to discuss your order. The Vital Choice Team

"so so"AM on 11/18/2016 9:19 AMRating:
Review: Im sorry to say that the fillets were just so so. My partner thinks they were not as fresh as what we get locally. Im glad we tried, as the point was to eat sustainably. He just isnt into buying more. They were on the thin side, and so also got dried out and thats my fault. we still have one to try- maybe Ill check the site for cooking tips - Thank you for ordering with Vital Choice. We are sorry to hear your partner did not find the fillets as fresh as what you get locally. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you today to offer some cooking suggestions and follow up. Thank you, Vital Choice
"Just Love'em"Thomas H on 11/3/2016 5:55 AMRating:
Review: Since we discovered these some time ago, they've been our favorite "go-to" meal after a busy day when not a thought was given to dinner! The large size cooks perfectly from frozen patty in a total of 8 minutes. We splash a little shallot oil in a pan, add a little seafood seasoning on them and serve on a variety of buns from onion to jalapeño with whatever's we can rustle up - mayo, tartar sauce, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, etc. Well worth the price.
"Wonderful Fresh Salmon"Martha J on 10/20/2016 9:09 AMRating:
Review: Made dinner the other night using three of the salmon patties (if that's what you call them!) and my family told me that, not only was it pretty, it was delicious, and looked like a dish you would pay top dollar for in a nice restaurant. Quality is excellent!
"Horrible Shipping Company!!"Aaron on 10/7/2016 10:15 PMRating:
Review: I would have loved to try the sampler - except Vital Choice refuses to use a decent shipping company. I just called this garbage OnTrac shipper Vital uses and after 2 hours of hold music they tell me it's sitting at an un-refrigerated warehouse, despite the tracking page saying it will be delivered today, (it's now 10PM).
Who wants to eat fish that's gone bad? Not me!
- Thank you for ordering with Vital Choice. We are very sorry to hear your disappointment in your recent order. Our Customer Service team will reach out to you today to make amends. Thank you, Vital Choice Seafood

"wild salmon sampler"Deborah L on 2/10/2016 3:22 AMRating:
Review: Very disappointed. The 2nd piece was disgusting with that white vein down the middle and inedible towards the skin, the first piece was the darker, redder salmon, I'm sorry I cannot recall its specific name.. I disliked it.
Salmon is a favorite in this family and this is no better, if not worse, than our local salmon.
Please don't ask me further questions.

Review: I have only tried the Silver salmon so far. I made it with only salt, pepper, and a little dill to make sure I could really taste the salmon. I could tell this was flash frozen very soon after being caught. It was fantastic!

Review: There really are no words to adequately describe just how wonderful this salmon is! Absolutely no fishy smell and just so fresh, you could almost say it's sweet! And the seasoning blend is fantastic! Hands down I will keep my freezer stocked with VitalChoice seafood from now on! Thank you for what you do!
"Delicious, Healthy, Safe Seafood"Sally on 2/20/2015 11:39 AMRating:
Review: I have avoided seafood for a number of years because (1) I won't eat farmed fish, (2) I have a sulfite allergy so stay away from fresh fish that may have been dipped, and (3) the frozen stuff is usually still dipped.
I've tried each type of salmon in the sampler and they were ALL delicious. I especially liked the silver salmon, which I had ever tasted before, because its quite mild and moist, and cooked with a nice toasty crust.
I scored the sampler a 4 because (and this may be my fault) the king salmon, which is usually the richest, oiliest salmon I've ever bought, doesn't cook as oily as fresh wild caught fish. But perhaps that's all about my learning to cook vital choice fish. The silver salmon cooked the oiliest and will be my next purchase.
Finally, when I'm eating vital choice, I know with every bite that I'm eating healthy fish that is chemical-free and brimming with healthy omega fatty acids. What an enjoyable feast that is!
I would most certainly recommend the sampler pack to anyone who wants to experiment with the different types of salmon offered by vital choice.

"Wonderful"Edie Dore on 12/24/2014 12:18 PMRating:
Review: The salmon is wonderful. It tastes just like salmon in Alaska. My husband will not eat salmon here because it is too fishy. But in Alaska he devoured it...and no with you brand...he loves it.

Review: We purchased the sampler to try a few different types of salmon. They were all great!
"Salmon"Lynn Davenport on 9/6/2014 5:43 AMRating:
Review: I have been trudging along in life not really caring about what I ate past what was good, what was on sale or what was fastest. In theory, I liked the idea of organic and given the choice, I bought organic carrots and cage free eggs, but I never drove to a different store to get them.
I'm old and I spent a lot of years living near the Pacific Ocean. I guess my brain had a buried memory of what salmon was supposed to taste like because there came a moment when I knew there was something wrong with the salmon in my mouth. The price was great, only about $5 a pound for individually packed frozen fillets and the label said ˜wild caught". I got up from my dinner table, dug the package out of the freezer and started reading the fine print.
"Wild caught in Russia"
"Processed in China"
"Product of China"
I Googled salmon and started reading. I'm sure that feeding over 300 million people is no small thing but reading what has happened to our food over the last few decades, I'm also sure there is something terribly wrong. I'm guessing the real problem is with people just like me, too busy to think about where the food in grocery stores really comes from or how it's made and grown but mostly, for me at least, a deep seated trust that companies providing our food had some fundamental sense of responsibility and honor with regards to the quality of food they put in our grocery stores.
I looked at the VitalChoice web site several times. I made use of their live chat feature and asked the best questions I could think of to ask. I talked to myself about their prices because to be honest, they shocked me. I looked for the fine print, the bad reviews because I was sure they had to be under investigation by some branch of government for fraud. I could not find one negative thing anywhere online about this company.
I finally took a leap of faith and ordered their incredibly expensive salmon. I cooked my first fillet yesterday. No marinade. No spices. Just fried it in a pan with some butter and olive oil. Took my first bite and sighed! yeah! that is what salmon is supposed to taste like.
I would not buy my fish from anywhere but Vital Choice…I’m so happy to have a source for great tasting, healthy fish.
