We are at the time of the year that all true seafoodies look forward to. I am of course talking about the season of Wild-caught Alaskan Salmon, one of the best tastes of the summer time! Full of flavor, rich in omega-3's, and sustainably caught, wild salmon is the perfect choice for weekend barbecues with friends or even for a quick weeknight meal. Not to mention, Wild Salmon is also a fantastic source of DHA, the omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for brain development, which comes from phytoplankton. DHA is stored in salmon's fat, and one 4-ounce serving of salmon can dish up 2,400 mg of omega-3s! But what's the difference between our Alaskan salmon and others? Simple; the difference is freshness.
Groomer's Seafood only brings in fresh, never frozen, Alaskan Salmon. While this may sound common for a fresh fish market, many "fresh" markets merely bring in salmon frozen and thaw it out for the daily display. Groomer's Seafood just refuses to do that. We understand that when you come here, you're passing up many local grocery stores to get something you just can't find anywhere else. Our buying team goes above and beyond the call of duty for this reason and works directly with the hard working fishermen of Alaska on procurement.
Next, we always bring these salmon in whole and cut it right off the bone to your order. This prevents oxidation that can happen when the fillet is left out exposed to the air. Our expert fishmongers then debone, trim, and portion your fillet exactly how you desire, a service that you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else. The end result is some of the finest salmon in the entire country, with types like King (Chinook) Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, and even the rare Alaskan Salmon like Ivory and Marble(pictured below)!
This is a wild product so keep an eye on our newsletters and facebook this summer to keep track of what's in. It's a short season, so be sure to come by soon!
