King (chinook) salmon is the richest, most luscious member of the Pacific salmon family, with the highest omega-3 levels.

Line-caught on small boats, our king salmon is iced immediately and flash-frozen to preserve its fresh-caught quality.

We cut some of king into "petite" 4-oz. portions, perfect for smaller people — including kids — and appetites!

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.

Slow-Roasted Salmon on Spinach Salad

Wild Salmon and spinach greens dressed in tangy raspberry vinaigrette … the perfect, perfectly simple solution for a light, elegant, healthful, vibrantly colorful dinner!
 
You’ll find this recipe in our upcoming Fall, 2012 Vital Choice catalog … which follows in the footsteps of ourrecent national award-winners.
 
We’ll let you know when it’s available.
 
Ingredients
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp freshly ground pepper
½ pound of spinach leaves, washed, dried and cut into shreds
½ cup whole organic hazelnuts, chopped and toasted
4 oz Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled 
 
Dressing
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 T seedless raspberry jam
1 T Dijon mustard
1 T honey
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • Rub each fillet with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange fillets skin-side down on a parchment-lined sheet pan; set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes while the oven preheats to 250°F.
  • Meanwhile combine the spinach, hazelnuts, cherries and Gorgonzola in a wooden salad bowl and gently toss.
  • Put the salmon in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until creamy and emulsified. Drizzle the salad with half of the dressing and gently toss. Divide among four plates.
  • Check the salmon with an instant-read thermometer. Even though the fish may look underdone, it is fully cooked when the internal temperature reaches 125°-130°F.
  • Top each salad with a salmon fillet and drizzle with some of the dressing. (serves 4)

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 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.
