  • Certified sustainably harvested
Easy to prepare and beautiful to serve, our wild Sockeye fillets are a perfect centerpiece for family meals or sharing with friends. Our delicious, boneless skin-on fillets are an excellent source of essential nutrition.
    Individual fillets will vary in size, but we guarantee the following total-order weights:

    3 fillets = at least 4.5 lbs
    6 fillets = at least 9 lbs
    9 fillets = at least 13.5 lbs

    Why is Vital Choice wild Alaskan Sockeye so clearly superior?
    The relationships we fostered during decades of fishing Alaskan waters give us rare access to the very finest Sockeye, from smaller harvest regions ("fisheries") that host fewer boats and feature faster processing. This means that Vital Choice Sockeye is cleaned and flash-frozen very quickly after harvest, preserving its fresh-caught quality perfectly.

    In addition, fat levels in Sockeye vary by region, and on average ours are substantially more flavorful, and full of omega-3 nutrition.

    These advantages explain why salmon-savvy shoppers consider Vital Choice wild Alaskan Sockeye such a rare treat.

    Sockeye vs. King and Silver salmon
    Wild Alaskan Sockeye is richer than our Silver (Coho) salmon and a bit leaner than our King (Chinook) salmon, with a firmer texture than either fish.
     
    Sockeye salmon nutrition
    In addition to ample protein, Alaskan Sockeye salmon offers abundant omega-3s, as well as unrivaled levels of vitamin D and astaxanthin (as-tuh-zan-thin).
     
    On average, Sockeye salmon provides these amounts of nutrients per 6 oz portion:
    • Omega-3s – About 1,994mg of omega-3 EPA+DHA, or 4 to 8 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg)).
    • Vitamin D3 – About 1,170 IU in the optimal D3 form, which is more than most other fish, and more than any fortified food, approaching the child-to-adult US RDA of 600 IU.
    • Astaxanthin – About 6.78mg*. This red-orange pigment is a carotenoid-class nutrient with unique health benefits.

    Storage
    Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months. Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).
    NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.
     
    Thawing instructions
    Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging.
     
    For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture package). Prior to cooking, do not allow fish to reach temperatures above 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius).
     
    Cooking and serving tips
    • Rinse fish quickly in cold, clean water.
    • Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes, until only the very center is still translucent.
    • Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes, until just cooked through to center before serving.
    • NOTE: It is perfectly safe and healthful to serve our fish raw or partly cooked, because flash-freezing has rendered it 100% sushi-safe.
    • Enliven your fish entree with seasonings such as Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix or other herb-spice blends.
    • Add the seasonings of your choice to a little olive oil and marinate the fish, refrigerated, for 30-60 minutes or overnight. Or, simply mist fish lightly with olive oil or macadamia nut oil and dust with seasonings before cooking.
