Our king salmon live in cold, mountain-fed lakes, where they are farmed sustainably in a low-density environment. The ultra-clean waters of the New Zealand Southern Alps, low stocking densities and remote location keep the fish naturally healthy without the need for antibiotics, hormones, or GMOs, so it’s safe for the whole family.
Freshwater king salmon
has the highest oil content of all salmon breeds, resulting in a greater concentration of healthy omega-3s. Mount Cook Alpine salmon has a clean, subtle flavour and a delicate texture that you'll love. In addition to being a rich source of healthy fats, king salmon also contains a good amount of protein, while still being low in carbohydrates, making it an ideal component of a keto diet.
Perfect baked, pan-fried or steamed, these fillets are a great base for an easy-to-prepare meal full of natural goodness. Try our delectable teriyaki salmon
recipe, with kaffir lime leaf-infused teriyaki sauce. Or this show-stopping spinach and quinoa salmon wellington
for that special occasion.
Discerning chefs also use our fillets for sashimi. Keen home cooks can do the same; just remember to handle the fillets properly before serving.
One whole side of boneless freshwater king salmon (~1kg) with the skin left on, and comes vacuum-packed and frozen. Each fillet is equivalent to about five portions, so all you need is a sharp knife to divide into the desired size. To ensure freshness
, it's best to portion the fillet while partially thawed, and to return the unused salmon straight to the freezer.
