All About Alaskan Sockeye


Now that you know why you should choose Shop Intercity, let's talk about the star of this launch, the Fresh Alaskan Sockeye.

Tips & Tricks For Cooking Sockeye Fillet


Sockeye has mild-medium flavour which means you can really get creative with how you want to cook and season it. You can broil, bake, grill poach and even smoke sockeye fillet. Its versatility will make this fish one of your new favourites. When cooking sockeye you want to make sure the internal temperature reaches 120°F at the thickest part of the fillet. To keep all the moisture in season your fish right before you plan to cook it because salt will pull out some of its natural moisture if applied too soon.
