Copper River King Salmon are the most famous salmon in the world! These incredible salmon are prized for their richness, mild flavor, and highly-marbled meat, which is high in Omega-3s. They hold celebrity-status compared to other fish, and are guaranteed to be some of the best salmon you have ever tasted!

The swift waters of the Copper River are responsible for the exceptionally high Omega-3 content of these amazing wild salmon. The larger species of salmon have a longer journey and colder waters to combat, so they store huge reserves of energy in the form of fat. In turn, the stored fat correlates to their delectable taste and high nutritional value.

There can be no denying that among seafood lovers, Copper River is a name synonymous with quality.

Featured Recipe: Alaska King Salmon Fillet Oscar

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes | Servings: 4

Alaska King Salmon Fillet Oscar
Béarnaise Sauce:
3 Egg Yolks
1 Tbsp Water
1 Tbsp Tarragon Vinegar
1-1/2 sticks (6 oz.) unsalted Butter, melted
1 pinch Cayenne Pepper
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Tbsp chopped fresh Tarragon

Garnish:
2 Tbsp (1 oz.) unsalted Butter, melted
16 fresh Asparagus Spears, peeled at the thick part of the stem, trimmed & blanched
8 oz. shelled Alaska King Crab Meat
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1/2 of a Lemon

Salmon:
4 (6 oz ea) King Salmon Fillet portions, skin on
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1/4 cup Canola Oil

Directions:
To make Béarnaise, in a heat-proof bowl (or the top of a double boiler) set over a pan of simmering water, vigorously whisk the egg yolks with the water and vinegar until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Slowly whisk the melted butter until thickened. Season with cayenne and salt; stir in fresh tarragon. Keep warm, covered.

To prepare the garnish, in a small sauté pan, heat half (1 tablespoon) of the butter. Add asparagus and warm through. Season with salt and pepper. Remove to a dish; hold warm.

In the same pan, melt remaining butter. When butter is hot, add crab meat and warm through (keeping the sections together). Season with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Remove to a dish; hold warm.

To sear the salmon, season the fish on all sides with the salt and pepper. In a 10-inch non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil. When oil is hot but not smoking, cook the salmon pieces 2 at a time, skin side down. Cook salmon until the flesh is cooked half way through and skin is crispy, approximately 4 minutes. Turn fillets over; cook additional 2 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining 2 fillets.

To serve, place 4 pieces of asparagus on the center of each plate crisscrossed. Set the salmon on asparagus, skin side up. Divide and portion crab meat on the top of the salmon fillets. Divide and drizzle the sauce on the crab meat, salmon and asparagus.
