Our savory and smoky Hot-smoked Peppered Sockeye is cured in a light salt brine and slowly smoked over pure, natural alder wood.

"If it Ain't Broke ..." Karen on 12/13/2018 09:25 Review: The previous version was terrific. Since you changed vendors, the results are less flavorful and disappointing. I'm hoping Vital Choice will return to the original vendor. Hello Karen, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in your recent order of our Smoked Peppered Sockeye Salmon. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you shortly to discuss your order.

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).

Serving tips

  • Smoked salmon is as safe as cooked fish, thanks to the natural, salt-mediated curing process and flash-freezing.
  • Serve on a bialy, whole grain bagel, thin-sliced dark rye bread, or crisp rye cracker such as Wasa Bread.
  • Spread the bagel, bread, or cracker with light cream cheese or avocado and top the salmon with thin tomato slices and/or capers and fresh basil leaves.
  • Crumble chunks into scrambled eggs with chopped, quick-sautéed chives, scallions, or bell peppers.
