Our wild king salmon steaks 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.

King Salmon Steaks come with bones in and skin on, which help the fish retain its moisture and delicious fats and nutrients throughout the cooking process.

King salmon have consistently won blind taste tests among salmon aficionados. Kings are the largest of the species, typically sitting at an average weight between 15 and 20 lbs. The fish’s high oil content makes it a prime candidate for grilling, broiling, sautéing, baking, poaching, steaming, and smoking – almost every salmon preparation will taste good on a king.

For those new to buying wild king salmon online, know that there is a running debate among fish lovers about which is the best salmon – king or sockeye. We have to admit that these wild king salmon portions will give sockeye fans a run for their money.

WILD KING SALMON PREPARATION TIPS 

As one of the more decadent salmon types, king salmon doesn’t require a lot of effort in the kitchen. The fish’s natural flavor and texture are enough to stand out as a main course. That said, we prefer our king salmon grilled on a cedar plank with a sprinkling of sea salt. To finish squeeze some fresh lemon juice onto the skin with a few twists of freshly ground black pepper. When buying wild king salmon online, we recommend a simple preparation to better experience the fish’s flavor.
