About This Producer:
ORA KING- (From the Farm) "The King salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) species makes up less than 0.5% of the global salmon population, yet is regarded by many as the pinnacle salmon species internationally.
We take great pride in producing wonderful handcrafted products which are available to you as whole, fillets or smoked all year round.
King salmon boast bright silver skin. They have a rounder mid-section in comparison to the longer, thinner body of the common Atlantic salmon species, resulting in a generous fillet.
King salmon have a bright, vibrant orange flesh colour, which contrasts attractively with the marbled fat lines for unsurpassed plate appeal.
King salmon are naturally high in healthy Omega-3s – up to twice that found in Atlantic salmon. This also
greatly reduces the risk of over-cooking as the higher oil content keeps the salmon moist.
Taste and Texture
With an elegant balance of umami flavours and a soft and buttery texture, King salmon has a complex, yet delicate mouth feel that coats the palate appealingly, making it a pleasure to eat."
