King salmon is a delicate and flavorful fish that is perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal. Simply season the salmon with salt and pepper, then cook in a hot pan for 3-4 minutes per side. For a simple but delicious variation, try using a citrus glaze or serve with a dollop of lemon butter. One simple tip for elevating king salmon is to add a sprinkle of fresh herbs before cooking. Basil, thyme, and parsley are all great options. Another way to enhance the flavor of this delicate fish is to serve it with a tart and acidic sauce, such as a citrus vinaigrette or a pesto.
Flavor Profile
King salmon is a prized fish for a reason - its buttery, succulent flesh is something to behold. Ora King salmon has an elegant balance of sweet and umami flavors, complementing a wide variety of ingredients. King salmon have the highest natural oil content of all salmon species - making them a great source of natural, healthy long chain Omega-3s. The high oil content also keeps the salmon moist, greatly reducing the risk of over-cooking. Sustainably farmed in the remote Marlborough Sounds of New Zealand, before processing by hand and flash freezing to lock in peak freshness, this King Salmon is a true culinary delight.
Chef's Serving Suggestions
Try pairing King Salmon with a delicious side dish of creamy mashed potatoes, some fresh green beans, and a delicious sauce like a pesto or hollandaise. The richness of the salmon will pair perfectly with the creamy potatoes, while the bright, green beans will provide a delicious crunch. And, of course, the pesto or hollandaise will add a delicious depth of flavor to the dish. If you're looking for something special, try a spicy salsa or chutney. Or add a dollop of herb-infused butter on top of your fish. The combination of herbs and salmon is a match made in heaven!

Ora King Salmon

Selective and meticulous breeding has led to this ultra-premium fish — sometimes referred to as the wagyu of the seafood world. Ribbons of marbling stand out on the bright orange flesh, which boasts a balanced profile of both sweet and umami flavors. Fish are bred and born inland in spring-fed hatcheries, then moved to sea pens in the cool, clear waters of Marlborough Sound of New Zealand. This process emulates the natural life cycle of the fish — from fresh to saltwater. Ora King Salmon is more delicate than Atlantic and Coho varieties, with large flakes and an almost silky texture. It has a naturally high oil content — and with that comes incredible marbling throughout the flesh of the fish, which leads to a rich, soft and buttery mouthfeel.
