This just might be the last time this season to get fresh, wild, Sockeye from Alaska. One of the most popular of the salmon types, sockeye is rich and meaty with dark red flesh.
Just a refresher—there are 5 different types of Pacific salmon (king—also known as chinook—sockeye, coho, pink, and chum). Sockeye (or red) is smaller than king salmon, but like king salmon, it is high in omega-3's and has an excellent flavor. We love Alaskan salmon grilled on a cedar plank. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice," and it is MSC Certified. Lower mercury. Kosher.
