Somewhat firmer in texture than our Sockeye and King, Coho is absolutely perfect for Poke as the texture remains firm and is not too rich when eaten uncooked.
Similar in color and texture to King Salmon, but with lower fat content which makes it somewhat more mild in flavor. Coho has a very approachable Salmon flavor profile and is a good crossover for folks accustomed to farmed salmon but wanting to make a healthy choice.
Just like King or Sockeye Salmon, Coho Salmon naturally has high levels of heart healthy Omega 3 oils. It is low in sodium and a good source of protein, niacin, vitamin B12, and selenium.
Revered as a superb grilling Salmon, though also exceptional baked, poached or sautéed.
Moist and delicate, yet also firm and substantial with a pleasingly subtle fresh from the sea flavor. Exhibiting an attractive flesh tone of muted reds to moderate orange; attributed to their wild & natural ocean diet. Leaner than our CR King with a less robust flavor than our CR Sockeye. Offering plenty of Omega-3 and Vitamin D. An exceedingly tasty and pure protein source. CR Coho is a favorite with many!
Our CR Coho's inherently pure flavor profile shines easily with a simple preparation of sea salt, fresh ground white pepper and a drizzle of quality EVOO. Alternatively this CR Salmon readily accepts rich sauces like a coconut curry- lemon grass or chimichuri without competing. A stand out super star when simply prepared raw as Hawaiian Style Poke (always use flash frozen- never fresh).
