Kulshan Sockeye Salmon

Seafood

Salmon is something we enjoy year-round in the Pacific Northwest, but especially during the summer months when the catch is fresh and flavor is at its peak. Our mission at Haggen is to find the best for you!

Recently, Haggen fish buyer Amber Thunder Eagle visited Alaska to meet with our Kulshan Salmon fishermen. “I wanted to make sure the Kulshan sockeye salmon was the very best we could offer our guests. So I traveled to Kodiak and experienced every aspect of the process from catching the fish to filleting and processing, and the trip all the way back to the Haggen seafood department. I was so impressed with the Kulshan fishery’s community connection, quality handling, and passion for bringing the best fish to market.”

Salmon can be enjoyed in many different ways—baked, broiled, pan-fried or grilled—and its flavor is enhanced with a simple seasoned rub or olive oil with fresh herbs. Simplicity is the key to allowing the flavor of the fish to shine forth. 

Try grilling salmon on untreated cedar planks (hickory or maple would work well, too). Planks should be soaked in water for at least an hour before use to ensure that they do not burn on the grill. As the planks char lightly, the moisture in the wood produces a cedar smoke that perfumes the fish and infuses it with a light smoky, flavor. 

You’ll find delicious fresh salmon, a full line of rubs and marinades and even cedar planks at your local Haggen store.

Meet Our Fishermen

Partnerships with fishermen are at the heart of Haggen’s seafood program and the relationship we have with the Kulshan’s fishermen are a great example. During the summer months, Roddy McDonnell of Bellingham captains his boat, the Kulshan, north to Kodiak Island to fish Alaskan waters. He’s been fishing for more than 40 years! Working with a crew of students and local fishermen the catch is delivered fresh only at Haggen.

In our efforts to deliver fresh, wild caught, premium quality Kulshan sockeye salmon to Haggen stores, it is a pleasure to work with and support local fishermen like Captain Roddy, working together to bring the finest-tasting, sustainably harvested fish to your table.
