Firm, buttery, fatty, and sweet, Wildfish Cannery’s Smoked White King Salmon Belly is an ultra-premium indulgence oozing richness and salmon flavor.
As its name suggests, King salmon (also called Chinook), is regal in size, appearance and taste. Known for its flaky, fat-rich flesh, this fish makes for one decadent tin. “White King” is the name given to the five-percent of fish in this same species that cannot process pigment and thus present with a light, pale flesh, that some say offers a subtle, must noticeable difference in taste.
Showcasing the extra fatty belly meat makes this tin even more indulgent (and we would say delicious) that its standard counterpart.
We recommend letting it shine over a steaming pot of short-grain rice dotted with sliced spring onion, nori flakes, and toasted sesame seed.
