Our Smoked Wild Alaska Coho Salmon is a pure as it gets, with no preservatives, nitrates, or nitrites and no dyes or pesticides or antibiotics as you might find in farmed salmon - just the finest of our wild harvest, brined in sea salt with a hint of brown sugar and smoked with alderwood. Smoked in the traditional Alaskan "hot-smoke" style, our kippered salmon has a delightful light flavor that is just right - not too intense or too salty. We choose the iridescent, athletic wild coho salmon as our favorite for smoking because its moisture content allows it to absorb the flavors perfectly without becoming dried out, so you end up with a beautifully firm yet nice and moist piece of salmon to enjoy.
Your order comes in a 2-pound bag of pristine frozen, vacuum sealed pouches from 4-8 ounces each. The pin bones are removed so you don't have to deal with any bones. And the portions are fully cooked and ready to eat as soon as you thaw them - no cooking required. Keep them in the freezer until you want to eat them, and they'll provide deliciousness for many months.
This smoked salmon is ONLY available for pickup Sundays in Linden Hills from 11 am to noon. The pickup is at Heartfelt, 4306 Upton Ave S., Minneapolis, MN 55410. Order by Thursdays for pickup the following Sunday- while supplies last. Feel free to EMAIL us with any questions at TollefAndAdelia@SoulMateSalmon.com.
Our favorite way to enjoy this smoked salmon is to mix it with an equal amount of cream cheese and perhaps some herbs and serve with crackers or vegetables as an instant celebration. You can also use these portions as a perfect healthy protein snack, as an appetizer on a charcuterie platter, or for a salad topping. Or whip up a delicious smoked salmon chowder, quiche, or spring rolls with basil. The possibilities are endless and your order will come with a free recipe card to get your juices flowing.
Your salmon tastes so good because we take such good care of it! Mindfully handling our fish to keep their quality superb brings us closer to our little corner of nature and reminds us to appreciate our amazing resource. We - Tollef & Adelia, the soul mates, fishermen, and business owners - harvest our salmon by hand with love and respect for the ocean and all its life forms. We fish out of open 23-foot aluminum skiffs with 2-3 hardworking faithful crew members working by hand to pull up our nets and disentangle the fish. Upon picking the fish from the net, we carefully bleed them and place them into chilled seawater. This is not industrial fishing. Our fish are never thrown, bruised, or crushed under thousands of other fish. We chill our salmon to 34 degrees until they are taken to the fish processing plant in Kodiak, about once a day. The plant, a locally Native Alaskan owned processor, uses the latest technology to fillet, pin bone and then smoke your salmon before a trip to the blast freezer to keep it in top top shape.
Sharing our salmon with appreciative souls in the Minneapolis area - Tollef's hometown - is the whole reason we started this business. It is our goal to provide you with the least diluted, most personal connection to your wild Alaska salmon possible.
