FLAVOR WORTH SHARING
Wild. Sustainable. Downright delicious. That’s Bristol Bay sockeye salmon.

With rich flavor and gorgeous red color, this salmon’s wild origins and premium quality are unmistakable.
FOR YOUR HEALTH
Bristol Bay sockeye is perfect for health-conscious cooks. Rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D, sockeye is a nutritious choice for people of all ages; one 3.5-ounce piece of cooked sockeye has 220 calories, 27 grams protein, 1200 mg of omega-3s, and a whopping 930 IUs of vitamin D.
Heart Healthy—The American Heart Association urges consumption of at least two portions of fish each week. The high levels of omega-3s found in sockeye make it an excellent choice.
Brain Power—DHA, one of the long chain omega-3s found in sockeye salmon, plays a key role in brain function. Recent studies also indicate that omega-3s may play an important role in mental health and prevention of depression. The brain-boosting powers of sockeye make it a superior choice for stressed students, new moms, and older adults!
Healthy Bones—Vitamin D is critically important to bone health, because the body can’t absorb calcium without it. Sockeye is inherently rich in this vitamin and has about 930 IU per 3.5 ounce serving. (An 8-ounce glass of vitamin D fortified milk contains about 100 IU.)
IN THE KITCHEN
Bristol Bay Sockeye salmon has a distinctive rich flavor and a deep red flesh color – color that stays bright even when cooked. It has a firm texture and cooks quickly, making it ideal for a weeknight dinner.
Sockeye salmon is ideal for grilling, pan-searing, roasting or poaching. With all methods, 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.
Sockeye salmon's rich and wild taste pairs well with fresh herbs and light, bright citrus flavors.
