Frozen Wild King Salmon
Has anyone found frozen vacuum-packed Alaskan wild king salmon anywhere? I've seen sockeye, keta and whatever types Trader Joe's has but have never seen king. I've tried the other types but just hated them. I feel somewhat leery of the defrosted fish sold as wild since there seems to be a good chance that it might not actually be wild. I would love to find the wild king you can order online from places like Vital Choice without having it airlifted by fed ex.

As a salmon snob who use to live in SE Alaska, I'm thinking you probably won't like king salmon either. It is better than sockeye or red salmon, but not a lot better. If you hate sockeye, maybe you have over cooked it. Otherwise, salmon just might not taste good to you. However, Copper River reds will be available soon. Their high oil content makes them as good as most kings. Just don't buy them the first couple weeks they are available, you will pay dearly for them.

I realize that this still isn't local by any stretch, but they are a small company in Petersburg, AK. treat their caught fish well, and half the price of Vital Choice.
I highly recommend the black cod/sable fish/butter fish. Very high in oil and also great smoked or as gravlax.
