Ingredients: King Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), Salt, Pure Cane Sugar, Spices, Natural Alderwood Smoke
Availability: Highly sought-after white king salmon, often marketed as “ivory king,” represent a mere five percent of the total king salmon population in Alaska, and many believe the white king’s flavor is more delectable than their red-colored counterpart.
Tasting notes: You can expect a delicate yet rich flavor with Omega-3 packed King salmon. There’s a sweetness from the tender flesh, balanced by gentle alder smoke notes. Then there’s the color. While all that separates a white King from the red is its inability to process pigments, its rarity sets it apart. When you want something extra special, this is it. Treat yourself.
Serve it up: The ultimate and accessible crowd-pleaser, show it off as the centerpiece on your charcuterie, seacuterie or conserva platter, or use it to add a little oomph to a tray of simple bruschetta.
