Alaska Gold Coho Salmon Portions Review & Giveaway


Alaska Gold Seafood is caught by members of Seafood Producers Cooperative (SPC).  SPC is owned and operated by quality-oriented fishermen. Quality is the keystone of  our mission. 
Over 70 years ago, a group of Alaskan halibut fishermen realized that the best way to ensure that their products were delivered with quality from ocean to market was to process their own fish instead of depending on the services of agents and distributors. They formed what would become North America’s oldest and most successful fishermen’s cooperative: Seafood Producers Cooperative.
What started in 1944 as a cooperative to provide halibut liver oil to vitamin companies has now become a full-fledged organization that provides the highest quality fish available to sushi producers in Japan, smokers in New York City, upscale restaurants across the United States, and reputable grocery purveyors in Europe. And the fishermen are still the boss. Alaska Gold fish have been so popular around the world that they wanted to make it available for convenient delivery to consumers in the United States with their retail website.

SPC owner/members have pulled together to build a processing plant, offer vessel insurance, bait, gear and fuel discounts, in addition to awarding scholarships for members’ children. Members advocate for responsible resource management through participation at the regulatory level, all in the hopes of consistently bringing quality seafood to their customers in a sustainable way. Starting with a quality-focused mission and the principle of taking great pride in what they do because it is their co-op, fishermen members work on small boats, at a small scale, but their fish reaches customers around the world. The reason fishermen join SPC is that their products reach a larger market than if they were working on their own and, over the long term, at a fairer price. 

The Seafood Producers Cooperative Mission Statement 
The mission of Seafood Producers Cooperative is to maintain an opportunity for quality oriented fishermen to participate in a cooperative organization that provides processing, marketing and support services which will allow members to maximize the benefits of their fishing efforts and provide the consumer with the highest quality seafood possible.

One Hook, One Fish At A Time It’s easy to think of fish as a school. But in the end, each one is an individual and has a life history and story. By catching fish on hook and line, One Fish At A Time, our fishermen see that each fish is unique in its own way. Some of their fishermen, like Charlie Wilber, say that they put so much attention into handling each fish that they have a name for each one when they’re done. We believe each fish deserves to be treated with a singular devotion to quality and the respect due to a wild creature, all the way to the consumer. In the same way that their fishermen consistently give individual attention to the fish they 
catch,  catching and processing One Fish At A Time, their personal touch and focus on quality and service are the difference.
They small boat hook and line fishermen catch and process One Hook, One Fish At A Time. This is a traditional way of fishing that results in an extremely high quality fish. Their fish are caught, bled, processed and put on ice within minutes of being caught. Their catch method and handling procedures are unparalleled in the industry.

We created an incredible recipe to cook up this salmon. It includes ingredients that you most likely already have in your home.

1. In a medium glass bowl, prepare marinade by mixing garlic, butter, Pappy’s seasoning (or your favorite seasoning), pepper, and lemon juice. Place salmon fillets in a medium glass baking dish, and cover with the marinade.  Marinate in the refrigerator approx. 30 minutes to an hour.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

3. Place fillets in aluminum foil, cover with marinade, and seal. Place sealed salmon in the glass dish, and bake between 35 to 45 minutes, until easily flaked with a fork.


Plate Alaska Gold Coho Portion Salmon however you wish. We plated it directly on a bed of rice surrounded by savory spinach and salmon juices.
4. Cook 1 cup of rice (we prefer to bake our rice in the oven. 2 cups water to 1 cup rice at 350 for 1 hour. Cover with aluminum foil)

5. Saute’ 1 ½ cups of Spinach. Flavor to taste. I simply covered the spinach with the juices from the bakes Salmon.
