Smoked White King
Highly sought-after white king salmon, often marketed as "ivory king," represent a mere five percent of the total king salmon population in Alaska, and many believe the white king's flavor is more delectable than their red-colored counterpart—you'll never know until you try! We recommend purchasing quickly 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...
