The California king salmon is the fattiest and richest of all the wild salmon types. These fish are called “kings” because they are regarded as the most prized, as well as the largest of the five species of commercially available Pacific salmon. Due to naturally high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, wild king salmon also features tender, flaky-textured meat and a rich, buttery flavor. Many people favor king salmon for sashimi and sushi; however, this fish is also wonderful when grilled, baked, broiled and pan-seared.
