These salmon are of the King salmon species from New Zealand. They are somewhat different to the sockeye salmon in that they are thicker and arguably softer in texture. They are a top quality, sashimi-grade salmon. These are fillet cut with skin on and are deboned which makes it perfect for kids or anyone who is too lazy to eat anything with bones or shells (as opposed to steak cut which is usually not deboned)!
Low in mercury and high in omega 3 fatty acids, widely known to be good for your heart, amongst many other health benefits! King salmon is also an excellent source of high-quality protein and contains vitamins A, B12 and D, as well as niacin and thiamine, for overall good health.
Try both the King Salmon and Sockeye Salmon Fillet to see which one you prefer. We reckon the King Salmon is better for steaming and grilling whilst the Sockeye is perhaps better for baking. Both can also be easily cooked by simple pan searing!
