The length of a salmon’s birth river directly governs the amount of fat the salmon must accumulate before beginning its journey upstream to spawn and die.

Longer rivers mean more fat, and more fat means more flavor — plus more omega-3 fatty acids.

What makes Fraser River sockeye special?
From its source on the British Columbia-Alberta border, the Fraser River flows 854 miles — three times longer than Alaska's Copper River, another birthplace to extra-rich salmon. 

The Fraser’s tributaries and headwater lakes are the spawning grounds of several species of salmon, and this river ranks as the biggest source of salmon borne in British Columbia.

Fraser sockeye spend their first two years in the river, then swim out to sea where they mature over another two years, getting steadily bigger and fattier.

Once fully matured, they return to the Fraser and swim upstream to their original birth waters, where they spawn and die, allowing the cycle to begin again.

"As good as Copper River Red" Liz S on 06/03/2019 07:28 Review: I always buy a LOT of Copper River Red, my favorite, but I tried 1 of these with a recent order and will be ordering a supply. I only got 1 portion, but it cooked beautifully (I pan sear, oven finish) and taste was superb!

"Amazing salmon" Ronald W on 05/26/2019 13:24 Review: I'm a long time Vital Choice customer and have eaten a lot of your sockeye salmon over the years but this is some of the best ever. Thanks for making it available to us!

Storage

Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months. Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).

NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.

Thawing

Thaw under refrigeration below 38° F (3° C). Use within 12 hours for best results. To quick-thaw, place unopened frozen package in cool water for 30 minutes or until fish is flexible.

Cooking and serving tips

  • Rinse fish quickly in cold, clean water.
  • Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes, until only the very center is still translucent.
  • Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes, until just cooked through to center before serving.
  • NOTE: It is perfectly safe and healthful to serve our fish raw or partly cooked, because flash-freezing has rendered it 100% sushi-safe.
  • Enliven your fish entree with seasonings such as Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix or other herb-spice blends.
  • Add the seasonings of your choice to a little olive oil and marinate the fish, refrigerated, for 30-60 minutes or overnight. Or, simply mist fish lightly with olive oil or macadamia nut oil and dust with seasonings before cooking.
