King salmon nutrition

In addition to ample protein, Pacific King salmon offers abundant omega-3s, as well as unrivaled levels of vitamin D and astaxanthin (as-tuh-zan-thin).

  • Omega-3s – Provides six to 13 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg).
  • Vitamin D3 – Provides one- to two-thirds of the child-to-adult US RDA (600 IU) ... more than almost all other fish, and far more than any fortified food.
  • 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: King portions have the most while Ivory King portions have the least.

Wild king (Chinook) salmon top all wild species for fat and omega-3 content, and is very rich in vitamin D

"Excellent seafood and customer service" Geffrard, MD on 06/22/2020 13:01 Review: At the onset of the recent pandemic, I ordered some salmon and sea bass portions. They were severely delayed in delivery, and had thawed upon arrival. Customer service rep was immediate in replacing the order with delivery by a better,more reliable carrier. The fish was absolutely marvelous and fresh tasting. I’ll never order from another seafood company. Perfect all around!

"Wow" Nancy Donner on 05/15/2020 18:59 Review: This is the freshest salmon ever. When thawed, frozen fish often has a slight fishy smell but not this salmon. It cooked up beautifully and was absolutely delicious with a lemon caper sauce and sautéed fresh beet greens.

"Wonderful - As always" Donna D on 04/28/2020 17:30 Review: Oh how I wish I could afford to eat this every day. After a few years away from VitalChoice, I splurged on a 24-box and I am over the rainbow! I love the higher fat content of this wonderful fish, and the fact that I'm eating healthy is a big bonus. Keep it up VitalChoice!

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 instructions

Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging.

For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture package). Prior to cooking, do not allow fish to reach temperatures above 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius).

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.
