Arrives in 10oz fresh portion, wrapped in food-grade absorbent paper, then in an individualized loin bag. Fresh Ōra King can be stored in the refrigerator for sashimi use 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 does slowly diminish 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.


Place superfrozen product in cold water for 15 to 30 minutes, until thawed. Remove the portion from the plastic, pat dry and wrap with our white butcher paper provided. Cut and enjoy within 24 hours.

Full flavor Salmon belly

Select cuts of the salmon belly arrived with nice fat content. I decided to try the traditional baked version with my first order and was happy with the overall results.

Kenny Chu

Super tasty rich flavor. There is no need to go to sushi/sashimi restaurant - this taste better than most restaurant can provide.

Best cut of salmon. Period.

I have ordered the Ora King salmon fillets previously. But my favorite cut has always been the belly, and I am very happy it is now available as a separate item. The quality is amazing.
