If you don’t want the added bonus of bones or skin in your canned salmon then this is a great one for you. This wild Alaskan pink salmon from Pure Alaska Salmon Co. is caught in the ocean around Kodiak Island, Alaska and it’s been filleted so the skin and bones are gone. What you get is great tasting flaked pink salmon.
Pink salmon is actually pinky orange when it is caught but the cooking process changes the color so it actually looks more like the color of tuna when you open the can. And it has a mild flavor much like tuna.
