Proton-Frozen Wild King Salmon Fillet
This product is available during these seasons:
Available only for a limited time! The coveted King salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) is the largest of the five species of wild Pacific salmon. Also known as Chinook, it is highly sought after by chefs around the world for its generous fillets and desirable high fat content. Loaded with naturally-occurring heart healthy omega-3s, it offers a soft and buttery texture and mild to moderate flavor. This premium fish fillet is excellent baked, grilled, broiled or pan seared. It's also ideal for cooking on a cedar grilling plank!
We primarily receive California wild king salmon, however depending on time of year and availability we also source from Oregon and Alaska. Each 1lb portion is hand cut in house from whole salmon, with pin bones and skin removed, then vacuum packed and proton frozen to maintain the highest quality.

What is Proton Frozen?
Proton freezing is a quick-freeze technology that combines evenly distributed electromagnetic waves and cold air to reduce ice crystal formation and cell membrane damage. As a result, taste and texture are preserved naturally, without any additives or chemicals. Color is also comparable to fresh if fish is properly stored and defrosted*.
*For best results when storing proton frozen salmon in a traditional home freezer, place in the coldest part and store for no more than 7-10 days. When ready to eat, slowly defrost in refrigerator and consume within same 24 hours.
