The first to return to Alaskan shores after wintering in the deep, cold waters of the North Pacific Ocean, king salmon are also the largest of the Pacific salmon species. However, they don't call them king salmon just because of their superior size; these monarchs of the sea provide taste and nutrition fit to grace the tables of royalty throughout the world.
Many health conscious consumers are purchasing fish-oil capsules as a shortcut to obtaining the health benefits king salmon provide, but they're missing out on some delectably delightful meals.

In our opinion, one of the greatest pleasures in the world is biting into an expertly prepared Alaskan scallop. They have a beautiful, rich taste and a creamy texture that’s enough to make an Alaskan seafood lover shed a tear of joy. In addition, Alaskan scallops are low in saturated fat and full of much needed protein. So they make for an extremely healthy meal, especially when paired with fresh vegetables.
Of course the road to enjoying the perfect scallop begins with an Alaskan fishing trip. Alaskan scallops are often pulled out of the deep waters around Cook Inlet, Kachemak Bay and Prince William Sound. Some of the biggest, most flavorful species that are dredged from those areas are known as weathervanes. Once harvested, they are hand-shucked, cleaned and inspected before being packaged at the peak of flavor.
You've probably heard all your life that white wine is the proper compliment to seafood, but the exquisite taste of ruby-colored Alaskan sockeye salmon makes me want to reach for a bottle of Oregon or Washington pinot noir. White wine doesn't deliver the punch that good sockeye needs, but when sockeye waltzes onto the dance floor, pinot noir follows in perfect step.
Next time you take out a sockeye filet with intentions of grilling it in the same old way, consider poaching it in pinot noir. Besides the fish, you'll need butter, water, freshly-squeezed lemon juice, black pepper, kosher salt, and wine.
