Flash Frozen Sockeye (1 lb)
This season Captain Abe fished the Cook Inlet Drift Fishery for salmon on the f/v Aghileen, joining forces with veteran driftnetter Captain Bob Wolfe. We had a good season and the Sockeye fillets have arrived in Pennsylvania.
These are Sockeye Fillets flash frozen at peak freshness. Sockeye (in Alaska known as Red Salmon) is considered by many the most flavorful salmon, with a dense, deep red filet that is ideal for almost any kind of cooking. Our fillets are individually vacuum sealed, allowing you to thaw as much or as little as needed. Each fillet averages about 0.75 lb, perfect for two servings.
This year we have shipped skin-on Sockeye fillets. Some were filleted, packed, and frozen by us at the shop of the Chugach Wild Salmon Company here in Homer (Thanks Bob Wolfe!) and other Sockeye fillets were handled the same way by Tanner's Fish Processing in Ninilchik. We remove the rib bones but pin bones remain in the fish. There really is no way to remove pin bones from a wild skin-on salmon fillet without wrecking the meat EXCEPT that they are easily pulled after cooking. On most of these fillets you'll find a line of fine bones following the lateral line (more or less the centerline of the fillet). We suggest you find these with your fingers before you cook the fish so you know where they are. After cooking the pin bones will separate very easily from the meat, and we like to pull the pin bones before serving. These Sockeye Fillets will arrive at your door in peak condition. You can't buy better salmon than this anywhere.
Our fillets are individually packaged and priced at $22 per pound. Expect to receive individual packages ranging from 0.5 lb to 0.7 lbs to make up your order.

A Note About Shipping
We ship our products frozen using dry ice. Please be careful not to touch dry ice with your bare hands. Dry ice expands into a gas when it warms up and should not be placed in an air-tight container or the container may burst.
