Our process begins with meticulous attention to detail. We carefully cure our wild king salmon in a specially handcrafted brine, ensuring that every piece is infused with flavor from the start. It is then immediately vacuum-sealed and flash frozen, locking in its delectable taste, and guaranteeing that it arrives at your table bursting with flavor, just as if it was freshly caught.

This abundance of healthy omega-3 fats gives it a luxurious buttery flavor and a velvety texture that melts in your mouth, making it one of the most sought-after fish varieties.

Whether as an appetizer, a flavorful addition to salads or pasta dishes, or simply enjoyed on its own, it's sure to satisfy your taste buds and leave you wanting more.

Health Benefits

 

  1. Promotes Heart Health

 

Salmon is considered one of the top heart-healthy foods. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which reduces systemic inflammation and the risk of developing atherosclerosis, hypertension and stroke.  These fatty acids provide a range of health-protective effects on the cardiovascular system. Specifically, these impacts include

  • Lowering (high) blood pressure
  • Reducing cholesterol levels
  • Reducing triglycerides
  • Normalizing heart rhythm (extreme heart arrhythmias can be a dangerous condition)
  • Improving blood flow

 

  1. Supports Brain Health

 

The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA found in smoked wild king salmon are essential for optimal brain function. Consuming these fatty acids regularly may help improve cognitive function, memory, and mood.   These fatty acids can also relieve  

Inflammation, thus protecting the nervous system from oxidative stress and age-related damage. In addition, some animal studies suggest that long-term omega-3 intake can help prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s symptoms.

 

3.   Improves Bone Health

 

Research suggests that the omega-3 fatty acids present could help enhance bone health to keep conditions like osteoporosis away.  Inflammation contributes to bone resorption, a process in which bone tissue is broken down. Since omega-3-rich salmon is a natural anti-inflammatory food, eating this delicious fish on a regular basis is a great way to maintain strong bones.

  1. Supports Eye Health

Consuming smoked wild king salmon regularly may help protect against age-related macular degeneration (the No. 1 cause of irreversible blindness in the United States and European Union) and other vision problems, because omega-3 fatty acid DHA protects the retina. They are also essential for eye development in infants.

Omega-3s also improve the drainage of intraocular fluid from the eyes and decrease the risk of glaucoma and high eye pressure.

  1. May Help Fight Cancer

Any discussion about the health benefits of omega-3-rich salmon would not be complete without mentioning the evidenced-based effects this superfood can have not only on preventing cancer, but helping to fight tumor growth and development. 

Much of this is related to its anti-inflammatory properties, which affect all areas of the body.  In fact, omega-3 rich foods such as salmon are some of the top cancer-fighting foods on the planet.

6. Optimizes Skin Health

 

Including wild-caught salmon in your diet may also help provide for a youthful glow and more supple skin due to its rich compliment of omega-3 fatty acids.  For this reason, dermatologists around the world frequently recommend consuming more wild-caught salmon to keep skin bright and healthy.

 

  1. May Aid in Weight Management:

 

The combination of protein, healthy fats, and nutrients in smoked wild king salmon can help keep you feeling full and satisfied, reducing the likelihood of overeating and supporting weight management efforts.
