There are five delicious species of Alaska Salmon: King, Sockeye, Coho, Keta, and Pink. Each salmon species has a unique color and flavor profile.
Alaska sockeye salmon has a distinctive rich flavor and a deep red flesh color – color that stays bright even when cooked. Although it is one of the most abundant of the salmon species it is a small fish, averaging just 6 pounds. A whole sockeye salmon side usually weighs 1.5 pounds.
The following cooking techniques have been developed specifically for Alaska sockeye salmon.
Adjust cook time as needed for thickness of fish and cook just until fish is lightly translucent in the center. It will finish cooking from retained heat.
