Winter King Salmon / Sablefish – April 2012 Special Order

  • We’re bringing some amazing fresh-caught Winter King Salmon& Sablefish to D.C. this April––Caught by David Rojcewicz & Wayne Parks this April in Petersburg, Alaska. Special order now.

    We just ran out of salmon for the season and we won’t have more until we return in August from fishing in Alaska. We just ran out and already we’re missing it! To get through the spring and for something really special, we are having some friends send us some winter king salmon which they catch by rod and reel off the coast of Petersburg, in Southeast Alaska. Salmon doesn’t get a whole lot better than this!

    King salmon, also called chinook, is an extremely rich fish with a mild flavor, good texture and pink flesh. Everyone loves king, even people who think they don’t like salmon. While the other four species of wild Pacific salmon are only caught during the Alaskan summer months, king salmon are line-caught in very small numbers through the winter.

    We are also brining in some sablefish, which is one if Alaska best kept secrets. Although this is a white fish, it shares almost nothing in common with Halibut, cod, flounder or other Alaskan whitefish. It is infinitely better! Sablefish is white, firm, flakey, very rich and high in natural healthy oils. We are bringing in some fresh/frozen fillets from 1-1.5 lbs as well as smoked sablefish also in 1-1.5 lb fillets. The prices for sablefish is $29.99/lb for smoked and $24.99/lb for fresh/frozen. The minimum order is one fillet. Take a little and try it, or get a bunch and enjoy it all summer!

    Nicole and I were already overnight FedExing in some winter king and we thought we would extend the offer to our friends and customers. Join us for this spring treat!
