This is the wild Sockeye salmon that is fished from Alaska’s famed Copper River and smoked in small batches to yield a rich flavor and moist, flaky texture. Found only in the Pacific, the Sockeye spawn each summer or fall in the cold Copper River, 300 miles of untouched, glacier-fed water in southeastern Alaska, and they are harvested in the wild using sustainable, environmentally friendly practices. Reverently prepared over two days in a 15-step process, the salmon is hand-filleted and slowly smoked in the traditional method passed down from the Northwest’s native peoples. The fully cooked salmon retains its distinctive red-orange color and succulent flavor. Vacuum sealing locks in the natural oils and preserves freshness. One lb. box.
