LUMMI ISLAND WILD FROZEN WILD CAUGHT KING SALMON (6 OZ)
Lummi Island Wild king salmon portions have a rich and buttery flavor with soft-textured flakes and a velvety finish. Also known as chinook, tyee, or blackmouth salmon, king salmon are prized for their high oil content, firm texture, and rich flavor. The fish’s flesh color can range from deep red to pale white, or “ivory.” This prized winter white flesh is only found in about 10% of kings. In most cases, though, buyers should expect a pale pink or orange color from their king salmon.
