The belly is the best part of the salmon and these wedges of belly around the fin are about as good as it gets. I grill these and the crispy fin acts like a handle for easy munching. Be aware that each wing has one fin attached.

King salmon wings are a divine slice of the world's best fish. Coho wings are smaller, with a similar mild and delicious salmon flavor, with just a little less fat. Sockeye wings are a similar size as coho with the amazing color and wild salmon flavor you expect from sockeye.

Who, Where, When, & How:

After commercial fishing Alaska's waters for 25 years, I am starting to focus more on turning out stunning fillets for your dinner table and less on sloshing around in my boat fishing. Although I am sometimes fishing, more often I am jumping on a friend's skiff to get their best fish before taking them ashore and filleting them in my beach-front fillet cabin. The art and craft of turning out beautiful fillets is more and more where my heart is these days. I call it salmon craft.

All my sockeye is hand-caught, filleted, and pin boned in a fillet cabin on the banks of the Ugashik River in remote western Alaska. Bristol Bay is the biggest salmon run on earth. Sometimes there are more than 65 million sockeye returning to spawn! Although we do catch quite a bit of king on the Ugashik River, I also source some from friends who are involved in the troll-caught fishery of Southeast Alaska. These are stunning fish caught one at a time by hook in their prime in the open ocean.

When it comes to the white fish I sell, both species, halibut and sablefish, are sourced from friends in Kodiak and Southeast, Alaska. Although I commercially fished halibut for years in my youth, it's something I now leave to my tougher friends.

My smoked salmon comes from a dear friend in Southeast, Alaska who has smoked for me for years. His smoked salmon isn't available anywhere else and is out of this world.

Interesting king salmon info:

  • The longest known trip ever taken by a salmon was a king salmon that traveled 3,845 km upstream to spawn.
  • On March 25th 1963, the Chinook salmon became the official state fish of Alaska
