Pink Salmon (also called humpies or humpback salmon) are the smallest and most abundant salmon of any of the 5 species of wild salmon caught off the west coast of Canada and Alaska. Pink salmon live for only 2 years before returning to the same river system where they were born. Milder and more delicate in flavour, this underappreciated salmon is high in vitamin B-12, vitamin D, selenium and niacin all of which aid in neurological function, reduction of cardiovascular disease and some types of cancer.
Organic Ocean Wild Pink Salmon Fillets are produced from Frozen at Sea (FAS) troll caught fish from the pristine waters of Haida Gwaii in Northern British Columbia. Our Wild Pink Salmon are filleted skin-on and boneless.
Wild pink salmon fillets can be grilled, broiled and baked. A delicate fish tastiest when grilled skin side down to retain subtle flavours, Pink Salmon fillets also exhibit their best qualities when cured, steamed or poached.
