Enjoy the best value on our wild Alaskan Sockeye!

These skin-on filleted Sockeye sides thaw and cook quickly, and one will feed a smaller family. Each fillet averages about 19 oz, and each 5-fillet order is guaranteed to contain at least 6 lbs.


Why is Vital Choice wild Alaskan Sockeye so clearly superior?

The relationships we fostered during decades of fishing Alaskan waters give us rare access to the very finest Sockeye, from smaller harvest regions ("fisheries") that host fewer boats and faster processing. This means that Vital Choice Sockeye is cleaned and flash-frozen very quickly after harvest, preserving its fresh-caught quality perfectly.

In addition, fat levels in Sockeye vary by region, and on average ours feature substantially more flavor and omega-3 nutrition than standard Sockeye.

These advantages explain why salmon-savvy shoppers consider Vital Choice wild Alaskan Sockeye such a rare treat.

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.

Sockeye nutrition
In addition to ample protein, Alaskan Sockeye salmon offers abundant omega-3s, as well as unrivaled levels of vitamin D and astaxanthin (as-tuh-zan-thin), a carotene-class red-orange pigment with rare antioxidant power.
 
On average, Sockeye salmon provides these amounts of nutrients per 6 oz portion:
  • Omega-3s – About 1,994mg of omega-3 EPA+DHA, or 4 to 8 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg)).
  • Vitamin D3 – About 1,170 IU in the optimal D3 form, which is more than most other fish, and more than any fortified food, approaching the child-to-adult US RDA of 600 IU.
  • Astaxanthin – About 6.78mg*. This red-orange pigment is a carotenoid-class nutrient with unique health benefits.

Storage 
Keep frozen. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, or to quick-thaw, place unopened frozen package in cold water for 30 minutes or until salmon is flexible. 

Cooking Tips 
Rinse salmon quickly in cold, clean water and pat dry. Add our Salmon Marinade, or the seasonings of your choice, to a little olive oil to marinate. Or simply mist salmon lightly with olive oil or macadamia nut oil and dust with seasonings before cooking. 

Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes, until only the center remains translucent. 
 
Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes before serving. Above all, beware of overcooking  your salmon! 

NOTE: It is perfectly safe and healthful to serve Vital Choice salmon raw or partly cooked because our wild-caught, flash-freezing process has rendered it 100% sushi-safe. 

Enliven your salmon entree with an antioxidant-rich seasoning like Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix, or other herb-spice blends.
