The Health Benefits of Salmon
Seafood is widely regarded by medical experts and dieticians to be healthy and provide nutritional benefits not found in other meat sources. While salmon is often widely publicized for its health benefits, in general, most fish species are also low in calories and fat, but high in protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Salmon is often included on lists of the best “superfoods” you can find and for good reason. A 3 oz. serving of salmon contains just 60 calories and 10 grams of fat while offering a whopping 17 grams of protein. Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin B12 to help regulate cells and provides a wealth of omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, some types of cancer, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.
Schedule Deliveries and Earn FREE Shipping
You can also schedule your seafood delivery ahead of time. At checkout, choose the date you want your food delivered and we ship overnight all orders so your products are delivered on that day. This ensures we always deliver the freshest possible seafood at your door on the day you need it.
In order to bring you a truly memorable seafood experience and keep our products as fresh as possible, all frozen items are shipped with gel packs or dry ice. Dry ice is not hazardous to food and will not contaminate it. In fact, these cooling methods, alongside our own nitrogen freezing process, help keep your seafood at ideal temperatures during shipping and ensure they taste just like they are fresh from the dock.
Simple Instructions for Storing and Thawing Salmon
Storage: Keep frozen ≤ 0℉ (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain their quality for at least 6 to 12 months. Lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish). It is important to note seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.
Thawing instructions: Thaw under refrigeration ≤ 38℉ (3℃). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging. For quick-thawing, place frozen fish in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture the package). Regardless of the chosen thawing technique, once the product is thawed, it should be cooked within 24 hours and stored at a temperature no higher than 38℉ (3℃).
Cooking Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
For a simple salt and pepper salmon recipe, follow these instructions:
- Preheat oven to 425℉. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil.
- Pat salmon dry then rub lightly with oil to cover the fillet. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
- Place fish on baking sheet skin side down.
- Put into oven. Cook 4-6 minutes for every 1/2 inch thickness of fish. 4 minutes is on the rare side, while 6 is completely cooked through. Salmon is done when it easily flakes.
Please be Aware: Consuming raw or undercooked fish may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions.

DawnVerified BuyerSockeye Salmon
I had quit buying salmon at the local grocery because it's farm raised and the texture and flavor were terrible. I was a little hesitant about ordering seafood online but decided to try it at least once. I AM HOOKED (pun intended). The shipping is super fast and the products are nicely packed. The salmon is perfect, the best I have had in years. The meat is firm, not mushy like farm raised, the color is vibrant, and the taste is perfection. Thank you Maine Lobster Now!

You get what you pay for folks! Tired of store bought nasty lobster, that smells and taste dead even though it is? I ordered ten of these tails for dinner and they were awesome! They were frozen but tasted pretty fresh, I'm excited to try the live ...

When I opened the package it was well protected and intact. The Lobster was better than I had expected. The meat was in large chunks and very moist. I will be visiting again. Thank You for your quality.
