Smoked White King
Highly sought-after white king salmon, often marketed as "ivory king," is believed by many to offer a more delectable culinary experience than their red-colored counterpart—we believe you should be the judge of that.
Representing a mere five percent of the total king salmon population in Alaska, the elusive white king is hard to anticipate and impossible to distinguish from red king until filleted. Many factors make this a truly limited addition to our small batch operation, so we recommend purchasing quickly whenever it's in stock to secure an ample supply of this unique curiosity from the sea.
Tasting notes: As food journalist Naomi Tomky recently wrote for Saveur Magazine, "this can impressed tasters more than the standard king." You can expect the delicate yet rich flavor of Omega-3 packed King salmon, plus a sweetness from the tender flesh balanced by gentle alder smoke notes. Then there’s the color. While all that separates a white King from the red is its inability to process pigments, its rarity sets it apart. When you want something extra special, this is it. Treat yourself.
Serve it up: The ultimate and accessible crowd-pleaser, show it off as the centerpiece on your charcuterie or conserva platter, or use it to add a little oomph to a tray of simple bruschetta. Just try not to eat it all before your guests arrive...
