Riviera Seafood Club's New Zealand Salmon Collars, more commonly known as King Salmon or Cinook Salmon, are sustainably and responsibly farmed in the Atlantic waters surrounding New Zealand. Each bite is an exquisite balance of sweet and umami flavors, complemented by a buttery and firm texture.
Salmon Collars, scientifically named Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, are the fattiest section of the salmon offering a rich, buttery flavor with a flaky texture. Each of our King Salmon is sustainably certified by the OSSE, BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices), and ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council).
All orders of New Zealand Salmon Collars, known as Masunosuke in Japanese, are individually packaged, frozen, and shipped using overnight express delivery. We guarantee our Salmon Collars are of the best quality that you can find, perfect for grilling or pan-searing.
By superfreezing our fresh seafood, in special ultra-cold -60°C freezers, we are able to lock in the freshness and texture of our sushi-grade seafood, while also allowing you to store our products in your conventional freezer for later consumption.
Also, to help many of our customers, most of our superfrozen seafood is shipped out in 8oz portions so you can order more at one time to save on shipping costs, and so you can thaw only the amount you need.
Happy with my purchase. Delivered on time and perfect frozen packages. Serve the Ora salmon and hamachi grilled the following day for my teen daughters birthday party and our guest loves it.
Great service and choices
Great service + choices.
Best kept "secret"
Best part of the fish - easiest to prepare with the best flavor and fat/flesh combination. I order every chance I get at restaurants and it's a STEAL ordering from Riviera Seafoods. Quality and portions are amazing - a staple for me.
The most delicious part of the fish
Often discarded the collars are considered a delicacy and are absolutely full of flavor and mouth watering fats. I love a simple marinade and a quick broil to crops the skin and just barely cook the meat through. They are fun to eat too, like chicken wings of the sea! Highly recommend.
