THE ROLLS ROYCE OF THE SALMON WORLD - The Copper River is considered one of the most prized bodies of water for salmon production in the world with a very very short season and that season is here now!
Also known as red salmon, sockeye is the second smallest of the five main Pacific salmon species after pink salmon. Frequently considered to be the best for flavor and texture, which is one of the reasons why it is often canned, sockeye is relatively low in fat with flesh carrying a fluorescent orange tinge. We love Sockeye because it is very sustainable and extremely versatile for all your Salmon dishes.
Chef Adam Cooking Tip:
Cook like any other Salmon but be sure to add a little extra fat because this Wild variety is a "swimmer" and it tends to be a little less fatty and it needs a bump of extra olive oil or Bacon - who doesn't love some bacon....
