As the largest of the species of Pacific Salmon, Wild King Salmon offers a light and pronounced flavor profile in its large, and soft-textured flakes that range in color from almost white to pink to deep red. It’s higher fat content, compared to other salmon species, is what contributes to its elevated, luxurious texture and flavor, described as a little less “wild”.
It’s important to open and inspect your shipment as soon as you can after it arrives on your doorstep.
Because it is flash-frozen at sea at the peak of its freshness, frozen wild king salmon is an affordable indulgence you can treat yourself to year-round.
While there are a number of safe ways to thaw frozen fish, by far, the best approach to preserve its flavor and consistency is to thaw it for 18-24 hours in the refrigerator.
Remove the wild king salmon from its packaging and put it onto a plate or shallow pan to catch any liquid at least 8-10 hours before you plan to cook it, and preferably overnight.
