And just like that, grilling season is upon us.
As late-spring turns into early-summer, we look forward to fishing season, family barbecues, hanging outside with friends, and, of course, entertaining. That is one of our favorite things to do in the summer – entertain. When it involves being outdoors with the grill fired up, yard games sprawled across the grass, and friends having fun, there’s no better way to spend the weekend with your loved ones. With that in mind, we wanted to bring you a few grilling tips and tricks for our wild-caught sockeye salmon, from Bristol Bay Alaska. We have the best sockeye salmon you’ll ever have – guaranteed.
Grilling salmon is one of our favorite ways to enjoy this delicious fish. If you received our Wildly Devoted Dinner Box, you would have received this recipe, but if you didn’t, you can click here. We recommend grilling your salmon low and slow. In other words, just barely sear the flesh-side first, and then flip the salmon to the skin-side, and let it cook through to your preference. To prep your salmon for the grill, we love the “Rub with Love Salmon Seasoning”, click here to purchase. We also enjoy grilling our salmon with the basics: salt, pepper, a little bit of lemon, and parsley. Let that marinate in olive oil for a few hours, then grill.
Not only will you love these recipes, but your guests will love them too. Keep in mind that sales are unavailable in June, July, and August. Therefore, be sure to order your case today – either filets or portions. You’ll be able to entertain all summer long and restock in the fall. Enjoy the rest of May, and stay tuned for updates out of Bristol Bay Alaska as we head into our fishing season.

With 2019 well underway, Pride of Bristol Bay is celebrating another successful year of business. From the very beginning, we’ve prioritized sustainably fishing for sockeye salmon in beautiful Bristol Bay, AK, along with serving a growing, loyal community. We’ve also maintained the highest standards for selling salmon and customer service. It has been an honor and a privilege to share Pride of Bristol Bay with our customers.
Strengthening alongside our business is our devotion to wild salmon and the pristine environment that supports them. From the original trip to Alaska on a whim — to agreeing to captain a boat, to getting a permit, and finally acquiring the F/V Ava Jane – we have always understood that investing in the fishery is equally as important to investing in the environment. But beyond passion, conservation of the environment is also driven by economics. Fishing in Bristol Bay demonstrates the area’s worth, and protecting this sacred space is of utmost importance.
