Also known as red salmon, sockeye is the second smallest of the five main Pacific salmon species after pink salmon. Frequently considered to be the best for flavor and texture, which is one of the reasons why it is often canned, sockeye is relatively low in fat with flesh carrying a fluorescent orange tinge.
We love Sockeye because it is very sustainable and extremely versatile for all your Salmon dishes. Flash frozen to lock in all the natural flavor this fish is available year-round even though the fishing season is super short and only fished during the summer months. We are happy to bring super high-quality fish to your dinner table in a very sustainable manner.
Chef Adam Cooking Tip:
Cook like any other Salmon but be sure to add a little extra fat because this Wild variety is a "swimmer" and it tends to be a little less fatty and it needs a bump of extra olive oil or Bacon - who doesn't love some bacon....
