Fresh Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
(Tuesday July 16, 2013)
Salmon has three seasons - King, Sockeye and Coho. We love rich and flavorful sockeye as the in-betweenie salmon. If you're not a fan of the intense flavor of wild king salmon, sockeye provides a milder choice, while still giving you that salmon richness you love.
Also known as red salmon for the color of their flesh, and bluebacks, for the bluish-silver color of their scales, we get our sockeye from the pristine waters of Alaska.
So what's the best way to enjoy this fish? We like it on a cedar plank for smoky deliciousness (check out our helpful video), or cooked in a smoker bag.
