Pink Salmon

flaky & delicate fillets

If flaky and unassertive is what you’re after (and many folks are) then pink salmon is a natural choice. The lions-share of this fish goes to the canned market but more and more of the choicest catch is being filleted for the home cook & restaurants. Pink is a nice change-up to the richer sockeye and like all salmon, it’s simply healthy.
