Fresh Ōra King must be stored in the refrigerator immediately upon arrival. Unlike other species of salmon/salmonoids, the King Salmon from this specific farm is naturally parasite-free. For raw consumption, eat within 1-2 days. Any longer, the portion will be searing, poke, or cooking grade.

You can also freeze these portions immediately upon arrival and store for up to one week for sashimi use or 10 days for poke, searing, and cooking preparations (keep in mind that freezing sashimi grade fish diminishes the quality of the meat as the cell membrane is not well maintained in conventional home freezers). For best results, eat properly stored frozen portions within 1-2 months of arrival.

"Fresh. Please store at appropriate temperature (28-32 degrees fahrenheit) in refrigerator, consume immediately or within 1-2 days. If you do not plan to consume within suggested timeframe, you may also portion & freeze to save for a later date. If frozen, consume immediately or within 1-2 months."


Keep product in package, place in cold water for 15 to 30 minutes, until thawed. Pat dry with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate and consume within 24 hours.

Pro Tip: Keep product in package, defrost in running water. Once thawed, remove from package, pat dry with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate and consume within 24 hours.

With every bite of our Ora King Salmon, your palate is introduced to an elegant balance of sweet and umami flavors, complemented by an equally sophisticated buttery yet firm texture. These exquisite salmon are farm raised in the crystal clear waters flowing from Te Waikoropupū Springs of New Zealand. Through sustainable husbandry practices and a quarter century of breeding expertise, only the best quality salmon are hand selected and branded "Ora" King Salmon by a master grader.

We offer our Ora King Salmon two ways, either arriving fresh (never frozen) or Superfrozen. Selecting the fresh option is best if you plan on consuming the salmon within a day or two of arriving at your door. Selecting the Superfrozen option is best if you plan on using it later. Superfreezing is a method of freezing foods below -60°C, locking in the quality, freshness and texture, while also allowing you to store it long term in your freezer, making this option extremely popular & convenient.

Individually packed and shipped using overnight express delivery. Our Ora King salmon is sushi & sashimi grade, sustainably certified by the Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) as well as recommended by Ocean Wise and the Monterrey Bay Aquarium.

Time your defrost process to a couple of hours before your meal for the optimal outcome.

Yes and no. Yes, you can refreeze it for a future cooking preparation. No, if you plan on using it for raw preparation.

Yes! We suggest that most super-frozen products may be stored in a conventional freezer for up to 2 months upon usage.

The United States is late to the game... Many countries, including Japan, depend on this technology to assure minimal loss in quality and maximum gain in shelf life.

Absolutely love the Ora king salmon I recommend to everyone

Benjamin Podraza
Fish snob says this is sashimi grade

The quality of the fish was outstanding. I have been munching on raw salmon for the past 3 days. I was equally impressed with the packaging. They go the extra mile to ensure the product is fresh.

Slice It or Spread It?

Unctuous, velvety and rich. It’s butter, dressed to look like a salmon filet.
