Wild Alaskan Sockeye Sampler
If you're a sockeye salmon fan and you want individual portions, then this is the option for you: Six – 6-ounce boneless-skinless portions of Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon.
Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon, one of the most popular species, is favored by many for its firm texture and true salmon flavor.
Why choose sockeye salmon? While all wild salmon are very high in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D and low in omega-6 and saturated fats, making them extraordinarily healthful sources of protein,
Its vitamin D content is higher than any other type of salmon. Commonly known as "red" salmon, Sockeye's unmatched astaxanthin content provides the species' characteristic deep red-orange color.
On average, each 6-ounce sockeye salmon portion provides:
Omega-3s – About 2 grams of omega-3 EPA and DHA, or up to 8 times greater than the minimum daily intake recommended by most world health authorities.
Vitamin D3 – About 1,200 IU in the optimal D3 form, which is more than most other fish, and more than any fortified food, approaching the child-to-adult US RDA of 600 IU.
Astaxanthin – About 7 mg* of this powerful antioxidant carotenoid
What makes Vital Choice Sockeye Salmon superior is this:
Through decades of fishing Alaskan waters, they have earned rare access to the very finest sockeye from smaller fisheries that host fewer boats and can offer faster processing of their fish.
Their sockeye is cleaned and flash-frozen very quickly after harvest, preserving its fresh-caught quality.
Fish fat levels vary by region, and on average Vital Choice sockeye features substantially more succulence and omega-3s than standard sockeye.
These premium boneless and skinless 6-ounce salmon fillet portions are certified Kosher (EarthK) and are individually packaged for your convenience.
Individually flash-frozen and vacuum-sealed, these fillet portions should retain their quality for 3 months when kept frozen at or below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. If stored in a deep freezer, use fillets within 6 to 12 months of purchase.
When ready to use, thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit. Before thawing, remove or puncture packaging. To thaw quickly, place intact frozen package in cool water for 20 to 30 minutes, or until contents are flexible. For best results, use within 12 hours of thawing.
Sockeye salmon cooks more quickly than other types of salmon, so be careful not to overcook. When ready to cook, rinse thawed salmon in cold, clean water. For deliciously moist results, brush with olive or macadamia nut oil, lemon or seasonings of your choice and grill, broil, or pan fry for 6 to 8 minutes total. Cook only until the center is still translucent. Your salmon will continue to cook for another 2 or 3 minutes after you remove it from the heat!
