This fresh (never frozen) Ōra King salmon’s texture is buttery and soft due to its unique muscular structure, and it cuts well and is light in the mouth. It has a vibrant orange flesh color, which contrasts attractively with the marbled fat lines for unsurpassed plate appeal, and its high oil content keeps the salmon moist, greatly reducing the risk of over-cooking.
King salmon eggs destined to produce Ōra King are nurtured in the crystal clear waters flowing from Te Waikoropupu Springs at a hatchery in Takaka, which has been verified as having some of the clearest waters in the world. They mature in the fast-flowing sea waters of the Marlborough Sound, thus emulating the lifecycle of the wild King salmon. This process has produced over 100 distinct King salmon families, chosen so that only the finest examples – with the most appealing taste, texture, color and size – are carried forward to subsequent generations.
Sustainably raised in the clear waters of New Zealand’s Marlborough Sounds, Ōra King salmon has a vibrant flesh color and high fat content which gives it the rich, buttery and melt-in-the-mouth texture that chefs around the world love. The go-to salmon for chefs at Michelin-starred restaurants, including Daniel Boulud, Stephanie Izard, and Thomas Keller, Ōra King just might be the finest salmon on earth.
