Wild Alaska Sockeye Salmon

Help your shoppers make dinner deliciously colorful with wild Alaska sockeye.

Sockeye Salmon

Sockeye salmon is a high-oil content species of salmon known for its rich flavor and distinctive deep red flesh, which retains its color throughout cooking.

Bold, Red, Healthy, Delicious

Where’s that big red color come from? Sockeye’s natural diet of krill and plankton possess a carotenoid pigment called astaxanthin. This powerful compound not only provides a deep color and rich flavor, but is also an antioxidant that promotes skin and heart health, may help prevent cancer, and can alleviate joint pain.


This firm, robust and vividly colored fish has a high oil content making it difficult to overcook and is a perfect star of the plate when prepared by baking, broiling, grilling, poaching, sautéing, smoking, sushi/sashimi, roasting or steaming.
