Why California King Salmon
California has traditionally been the leading producer of troll caught king “Chinook” salmon along the Pacific Coast. Chinook salmon is called “king” because it is regarded as the most prized, as well the largest, of the five species of Pacific Salmon.
Individually line-caught King Chinook Salmon have a leaner, firmer texture and more robust flavor than other salmon. Grilled, baked, steamed, roasted or poached, California King salmon is fish at its best.
The fresh season is short – May through September – making salmon perfect for summertime meals. So, fire up the grill and barbeque the whole fish immediately, or use a portion now and freeze or smoke the remaining fish for later enjoyment.
When you purchase a whole California King Salmon from a commercial fishing boat or retailer, you can be assured that only the highest quality standards have been followed. Each salmon is cleaned at sea and held at an optimum temperature until the boat returns to short and the fish is sold.
