Alaskan Coho Salmon – In the Can, In your Kitchen
Now that you know why wild-caught Coho salmon are such great fish, let’s take a peek inside the canning facility where the fish are prepared.
When the salmon are unloaded from the fishing vessels to our packer in Alaska, they are immediately filleted by hand and have their bones and fins removed. Crown Prince was among the first seafood companies to provide skinless boneless salmon for the home cook.
From there, the clean fillets are lightly brined and put into a wood-chip smokehouse. They are lightly smoked over alder wood to impart subtle flavor and temper the texture just so.
The salmon is hand-cut and hand-packed into cans, and then steamed inside the can. Our Coho salmon is steamed in its own juices and oils; after all, it’s difficult to enhance Mother Nature. The cans are then sterilized, inspected, and labeled – then shipped off, soon to reach your grocery store and kitchen.
