Buy Ora King Salmon Fillets Online

Ora King Salmon is a unique breed of King Salmon, perfectly crafted for culinary excellence. Bred only in the crystal-clear waters of New Zealand, the genetically distinct Ora King Salmon is individually weighed and has a uniquely numbered gill tag attached. This allows traceability all the way back to the broodstock, which is the beginning stage of their breeding process. Only the highest quality Ora King Salmon are hand-selected by a master grader to ensure utmost perfection. This is your chance to scoop up this rare species of fish today!

Where Your Fish Comes From

The only Ora King Salmon in the world comes from the crystal-clear waters off the coast of New Zealand. The breeding program begins at a freshwater facility where Ora King Salmon eggs are nurtured in flowing waters; this is known as the broodstock. From there, fertilized eggs hatch at another freshwater facility within New Zealand. Within the first year of life, the smolt are transported to an aquaculture facility where Ora King Salmon can mature in fast-flowing sea water, emulating the natural life cycle of wild King Salmon.

Serving Size

What’s the Serving Size of Ora King Salmon Fillets?

Nutritional Benefits

The Health Benefits of King 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.

Ora King Salmon is highly beneficial to your health, just as other species of salmon. 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 have been proven to help lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, as well as some types of cancer, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.

Storage & Thawing

Simple Instructions for Storing and Thawing Ora King 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℃).

All of our fish products can be served in a variety of delicious ways. You can follow your own household recipe or find plenty of fish recipes online, like our Miso-Glazed Salmon with Sesame Noodles.

For a simple salt and pepper salmon recipe, follow these instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425℉. Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Pat your salmon dry then rub lightly with oil to cover the fillet. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Place your salmon on a baking sheet: skin side down.
  4. Put your salmon into the 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 finished cooking 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.

When I opened the package it was well…

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.
