Wixter’s Sockeye Salmon is wild-caught in the cool, clean waters of the Cook Inlet. Since it originates from one of the only salmon fisheries not enhanced by a hatchery spawn, Sockeye is a truly wild fish. With its deep orange, almost scarlet flesh, Sockeye is prized by salmon lovers for its texture and rich flavor. While it is one of the smaller species of Pacific salmon, Sockeye is packed with more heart-healthy omega-3s than its larger cousins. It is also a joy to work with in the kitchen. Wixter’s Sockeye stands up well to grilling, tastes delicious slow roasted, and can be fried for foodies who like a crispy skin.
