We are very fortunate to have such a supply of fresh caught wild salmon here in BC. Wild caught Sockeye or King salmon are premium when it comes to taste. You can fish for it or get fresh from the market. Every chef worth his or her salt must be able to prepare salmon with out over cooking and in several recipe forms.

Wild Salmon contain lots of essential healthy omega oils, protein nourishment, low fat content which greatly aid in a healthy diet completing your required daily in take of vitamins and minerals. Try to purchase salmon from a reputable source and ask the clerk questions like is it BC caught? Is it wild or farmed? Would you show me its flesh or may I have a closer look to detect any fishy odours. Remember your meal will only be as good as the product is. You just can’t make stale dated fish taste worthy. Over the years I have prepared different varieties of salmon from all over the world. for clients that demand the best that there is. Our King Salmon is one of British Columbia’s gourmand recognised fish exports. Discriminating salmon lovers found around the world would agree that our Wild King Salmon is ranked the highest in quality.
