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. 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.
Gentle smoking with oak chips enhances king salmon’s natural, delicate flavours. The result is a sweet smokiness coupled with an intense umami experience. Aoraki hot-smoked salmon is the basis of no-fuss recipes, requiring just gentle heating. Portion to the required size and serve with rice or quinoa, garnished with steamed vegetables for a simple, nutritious meal. Or place on a platter as a centerpiece and surround with gourmet crackers, cheese and kalamata olives for a decadent sharing plate.
Our frozen hot-smoked salmon fillets are around 0.8kg each, and are vacuum-packed to preserve freshness.
