Did You Know?
Chinook salmon are called "kings" because they are regarded as the most prized,
as well as the largest, of the five species of Pacific salmon.
King Salmon is available in the following forms: fillets, steaks, roasts, whole,
smoked and cured.
King Salmon is not particularly bony, but be sure to check fish carefully for
bones. If found, they pull out easily with tweezers, pliers or even fingers.
Cook salmon in as large a piece as possible; larger sections stay moister. In
fact a whole dressed fish makes an elegant presentation.
Select salmon with moist shiny skin, firm flesh and a fresh aroma.
Keep fresh salmon icy cold and use promptly.
