A hunk of delicious wild pink salmon caught in Southeast Alaska waters and a bit of salt is all you’ll find in this can. Pure Alaska Salmon Co. puts the hunk of wild salmon in the can, adds a little salt for flavor and then processes it. As a result, some liquid naturally occurs so you get salmon that is moist and delicious.
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. It has a more mild flavor than wild Sockeye. In fact, you can use it in place of tuna in most recipes.
If you ate canned pink salmon many years ago, try it now. It tastes nothing like canned salmon used to. It is much, much better. It’s not mushy and has a better flavor.
