Description Nicely portioned strips from the center of the wild king salmon fillet. Perfect for cooking a single serving of the most premium salmon in Thailand. Of all the wild Alaskan salmon varieties, the King Salmon (also called Chinook) is the most prized. The King is more fatty than other wild salmon, and while the texture is firm (and is strong enough to hold up well to cooking) it still melts in your mouth. The wild King is not available anywhere else in Thailand, and this is the first time we've ever sold it in portioned strips so you don't have to cook a whole filet to try the King. 👑 Limited annual supply. Once our current supply is sold, we'll be waiting for the next season's catch to arrive in late fall. Origin Wild-caught and directly imported from Alaska. Recommendations These filet strips are a very versatile cut suitable for further preparation for a variety of dishes. Can be baked in an oven, poached, pan fried, or grilled over open flame. Your imagination (and cookbook!) is your only limit. ===For more information, please read below=== Why are all of our fish wild-caught from rivers and oceans? Salmon are carnivores and feed on shrimp and krill as well as little sea creatures called plankton and zooplankton. This is the natural diet of a wild salmon. Salmon and other types of fish that raised in fish-farms are not on a carnivorous diet since it is too costly and therefore not very profitable for the farmers. Fish that are raised in farms are given food pellets made from soybeans and corn that also has antibiotics added to the food to reduce the outbreak of diseases like parasitic sea lice (Click here for the source). In 2011 it was estimated that $436 million worth of farmed salmon in Norway was inedible due to parasitic sea lice breakouts in farmed fisheries (Click here for the source), which is still an ongoing issue in 2019. When we mention our salmon is wild-caught from Alaska, we want our tribe members to know that they need not worry whether there's antibiotics or any other added toxins in our salmon. It's important to note that mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are found in both farm-raised and wild-caught seafood due to industrial pollution that finds its way into lakes, rivers, and oceans. However, studies show that there are 8x fewer PCBs in wild-caught fish than their farmed siblings (Click here for the source). Large predatory fish that live 10+ years tend to build up more mercury as they age. The life expectancy of wild salmon is anywhere from 2-8 years and as they feed on small fish, their mercury levels are much lower. We have also listed a neat chart that lists which fish have a lower mercury rate compared to others. Finally, wild-caught salmon tastes much better and has a better texture than farmed.
