Wild Alaskan king (chinook) salmon is even higher in omega-3-rich oil than other Salmon species, making it supremely rich and succulent. Ours is line-caught by hand for optimal quality
Our random-weight offering contains 5 lbs of skinless-boneless portions of varying sizes, with approximately 14 individually packaged portions per box.
Note: Your package may include smaller tail sections – which cook quickly and are ideal for smaller appetites – and white, red, and or "marbled" king portions, which are similar in flavor, texture, and omega-3 content.
Alaska King Salmon naturally exhibit a red, white, or marbled red-white coloration, due to variations in the amounts of red pigment (astaxanthin) they absorb from the tiny marine animals in their diet.
King salmon nutrition
In addition to ample protein, king salmon provide three beneficial natural food factors in abundance ... amounts are per 6 oz portion, and will vary annually and by harvest location:
- Omega-3s – About 3,319mg of omega-3 EPA+DHA, or 6 to 13 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg).
- Vitamin D3 – About 400 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 1.49 mg (red king). This red-orange pigment is a carotenoid-class nutrient with unique health benefits. Astaxanthin content varies by color: Red king portions have the most while ivory king portions have the least.
