About our sockeye.
With a firm texture and rich flavor, sockeye salmon is prized by discerning palates worldwide. Our wild-caught salmon is conveniently cut into 5 to 7 oz. portions, while their skin-on, boneless presentation makes meal prep a snap. Grill, bake, or broil the portions to savor pure salmon flavor any day of the week.
What makes our sockeye special?
Sockeye's amazing life cycle, with up to four years in the cold waters of North Pacific, ensures a true salmon taste and a brilliant orange-red hue that’s signature to wild-caught salmon. We fish this sockeye in the pristine waters of Bristol Bay, Alaska, a world-class fishery focused on sustainability. Our catch is placed in refrigerated sea water within minutes of harvest, and flash-frozen within hours, providing unmatched fresh flavor.
What about the health benefits?
Considered a true superfood, sockeye's unique habitat and diet creates an unmatched combination of health benefits. With its abundance of omega-3s, vitamin D, and astaxanthin (the antioxidant that gives it its orange-red hue), sockeye is ideal for supporting your healthy lifestyle.
Why we love it!
Captain Steve describes sockeye as “the performance athlete of the sea". Our wild-caught, Alaskan sockeye is our most popular catch for a reason: It offers pure salmon flavor and a delicious, firm texture that can only come from seafood harvested at the peak of its life cycle. You can be sure that our skin-on, boneless portions will combine convenience, nutrition, and flavor into every six-ounce portion.

Sockeye portion recipe
Seafood continues to cook after it’s removed from the heat, so take it off just as soon as it starts to flake. We often tell our customers that if they think their fish is almost done cooking-- it’s done! Slide a sharp knife tip into the center of the thickest part of a cooking salmon portion, checking for color and an internal temperature of at least 145°F.
Most fish cooks best over a medium-high flame. Ensure the grill is hot before you start cooking. Liberally brush oil onto the grill or cooking surface just prior to cooking. Planking is a great way to add subtle flavor to your wild Alaska Seafood while also offering an impressive serving platter. Find out more on how to cook with planks
