Storage

Fresh Regal 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.

Defrosting

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.

The delicate texture of our fresh Regal King Salmon are reflective of the clean, cool, deep sea waters of New Zealand's Marlborough Sounds where these fish are raised. Featuring generous marbling, these delicious King Salmon are vibrant orange/red in color, with a creamy, buttery and velvety texture that melts away in the mouth.

These New Zealand Regal King Salmon are individually packaged and shipped using overnight express delivery and are perfect for sashimi and sushi, oven baking, poaching, pan-frying or grilling.

Regal New Zealand King Salmon farms are annually audited and certified by the independent Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) program from The Global Aquaculture Alliance and have achieved BAP 4 stars certification for their Hatchery, Farms, Factory and Feed. They are also recommeded by Ocean Wise and received the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Green / Best Choice rating.

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.

Not as I expected

Quality & taste was disappointing. Seems like it was frozen for too long.

Subpar quality is never acceptable at RSC! This feedback was given to our quality and products team for review.
