Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is iconic for its vibrant color and exceptional health properties, having the highest amount of Omega-3 fatty acids of any fish. Sockeye is also known for its strong flavor, often referred to as "the salmon, that tastes the most like salmon". Slightly leaner than other salmon species, the firm texture allows for easy grilling, baking, or frying in the skillet.

Sockeye Salmon is a Northwest favorite and it's easy to see why. The flesh is firm and pink with a rich, buttery flavor. The best way to cook Sockeye Salmon is to pan-sear it skin-side down in a hot skillet until it's crispy and the flesh is cooked through. One simple way to elevate your Sockeye Salmon is to serve it with a delicious sauce. For example, try my Honey-Lime Cilantro Sauce. It's easy to make and it goes great with Sockeye Salmon.

Chef's Serving Suggestions
If you're looking to pair a delicious side dish with your Sockeye Salmon, I highly recommend trying some roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon. The salty and smoky flavor of the bacon pairs perfectly with the delicate flavor of the salmon. Another great option is a simple herb sauce made with parsley, lemon, and olive oil. This sauce can be used to top any type of fish, so its a great option if you're looking for something versatile. Some of the best side dishes to serve with Sockeye Salmon include rice, couscous, orzo, and other small pastas.
