Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is iconic for its vibrant color and exceptional health properties, having the highest amount of Omega-3 fatty acids of any fish. Sockeye is also known for its intense flavor, often referred to as "the salmon, that tastes the most like salmon". Slightly leaner than other salmon species, the firm texture allows easy grilling, baking, or frying in the skillet.
Unlike farmed salmon, due to their natural diet and seasonality, wild salmon features distinctive color variations depending on the amount of shrimp and krill the salmon eat. As wild salmon obtain their characteristic reddish-orange hue through their diet, color variation is natural.
